Thanks to the connection of the new railway line, the longest train connection in the world have been created. By train, you can now travel from Portugal to faraway Singapore on a single track.

Trains are often a very underrated way of traveling. Unlike air transport, it can always surprise us with ever-changing scenery, spectacular mountains, vast fields, picturesque rivers, or modern cities. It's a charming way to get to know the world from Europe to Asia from just one coupé.

Several important stops such as Paris, Moscow, or Beijing can be seen from the journey which begins in Lagos, Portugal to Singapore. It is stated that the total length of the route is an incredible 18,755 km and will take you about 21 days to conquer. This is undoubtedly the longest land journey anyone can take.

This route has long been impossible due to the closed railway line in Laos. In the past, passengers had to cross Vietnam, where they changed to a bus that took them all the way from Saigon to Bangkok. The construction of a railway line in Laos has, among other things, opened the door to rail transport from China. The line connects the Chinese city of Kunming with the capital of Laos, Vientiane.

Going on the longest train journey in the world is not for everyone, it involves a lot of planning and long hours spent on the train. But if you are interested, be prepared to save up to 1200 EUR, and that is just for a one-way ticket!

Traveling halfway around the world by train will thus become significantly more expensive. Would you like to go on such a journey?  We definitely would!
