From Beijing, it’s just over 12,000 kilometres to St Petersburg. Along the way, walk on China’s Great Wall, enjoy Almaty in the shadow of the mighty Tien Shan Mountains and follow the great Silk Road to the ancient cities of Samarkand and Bukhara.

"This journey ticked so many boxes on my Bucket List and I loved every minute. So many contrasts a real highlight of my travel experiences. Excellently guided with fabulous behind the scenes support. Thank you Sundowners Overland!" - Pieta Maree Mace, New Zealand
