Guess where the Smallest International Bridge is
And the longest Rail Trail in Portugal is…

Portugal is the Starting Point to the Longest Train Ride in the World

The longest train ride in the world starts in Portugal and ends in South Vietnam. The 11 thousand miles journey takes about 275 hours – equivalent to 12 days – and costs around $1.570.

The journey starts in Porto and is always made by train, except for a short stop in Paris – in which is necessary to take the metro at Gare Montparnasse towards Paris Nord station.

Check the full route and the prices (on average):

Porto — Coimbra B

Coimbra B — Hendaye (França)

Hendaye — Paris Montparnasse (França)

Paris Montparnasse — Paris Nord (França)

Paris Nord — Colónia (Alemanha)

Colónia — Varsóvia (Polónia)

Varsóvia — Moscovo (Rússia)

Moscovo — Pequim (China)

Pequim — Hanói (Vietname)

Hanói — Saigão (Vietname)

Ooo, it looks nice trip plan. Has anyone tried this adventures roote and is it worth it?


Hey! Cool post! Do you know how often this trip is actually completed? A friend of mine and I are planning to do it, but in reverse from Vietnam to Portugal (we'd start in Singapore and go over land to Vietnam before catching the train from there). Any tips? Cheers!

Heather Jolly often does this train trip take this journey......???
Does for 2018.... Would be appreciated.....


This is an amazing adventure for sure. Would love it.

Well the planning is starting. I live in Portugal and intend to fly out and catch the train home in early Spring 2019. I had a travel buddy who was looking forward to this trip with me unfortunately passed on so looks like it will be a solo journey. Any tips or advice on any bits of it would be appreciated.

However, when you hold an Indian passport, you will need to apply for a Schengen visa.
