Memorable parts? Visiting Mongolia was the highlight. We even had two extra days and a night in the country as we were 'bumped' off the train (with some other passengers) from Ulaan Bataar to Beijing. We ended up flying with Air China instead (this airline is not recommended - inflight service is truly grim!). Although it was disappointing not to complete the journey be rail, we were impressed with the operators for making excellent alternative arrangements. We stayed in an Eco-Ger camp and...
