on this same thread, why is it so expensive and time consuming to get from Bejing to Vladivostok? It is only a few hours flying time but flights are over $800 r/t or require 2 layovers and 20 hours of flying time = leaving or arriving at 3 am.

I think you need to check again

There are 3 direct flights per week
Aeroflot flies between the cities every thursday and s7 airlines flies between the cities every monday and wednesday.
The cheapest one way flight is Aeroflot on Jan 28th for $91 and 2h30m flight
https://www.google.com/flights/#sear...to+vladivostok

but if you want to fly on Sunday, Tuesday, Friday, or Saturday, there is no direct flight.
I guess there isn't a large enough demand for a direct flight all week long.
Also as more casinos are built in Vladivostok I would expect that more flights will be added.

City of Harbin is China's megacity in the area. Train ride from Harbin to Vladivostok costs about $USD 40.

Here's some tourists information about City of Harbin on food, Russian architecture, attractions.

Vladivostok and Harbin. Maybe interesting places to visit, but not as bustling as other major East Asian cities nearby. The cold winter there is a turn off.

I am thinking of going to Russia some time and going to Europe from there. What is the cheapest way to go from Vladivostok to Europe?

I honestly don't know, since I have never actually been to Russia, or Europe, but I would assume the cheapest would be to fly from Vladivostok to Moscow, and then from there to any European city you want to go to. Train is probably going to be similar cost but it will take a whole week to travel just to Moscow, and driving non stop would be about 5 days.

I think you can do it in 4 days if you take the Mongolia-China route.

Why is Russia opening a ferry service between Vladivostok and Rajin, North Korea if the two countries share a land border and have a railroad connecting the two, wouldn't it be faster and simpler to transport people and goods by train, and if vehicles need to be transported than couldn't they build a road? Is this just Russia trying to prop up North Koreas shipping industry?
