A couple of times I made a stopover in Harbin on my way to Qiqihar. Sometimes it’s more cost effective to fly into Harbin and then take a train or drive to Qiqihar or Changchun. When I did that the first time in 2012, the train was a “green train”, i.e. a very slow one, […]

Это, конечно же, весьма субъективное […]
