Shangri-La Express/Golden Eagle

This Silk Road tour involves two trains. If you can, travel the Shangri-La Express on the first leg and then take the more luxurious Golden Eagle. The differences between the two are so great that if you do it the other way around, you may be sorely disappointed, says Hardy. The trip will take you through the countryside to parts of China you would never normally see, where oxen pull ploughs in the fields and extended families live in small, wooden homes. On the Shangri-La, toilets and showers are at the end of the cars.

$22,395 - $38,495 per person, based on double occupancy, 21-day trip; 3 nights in hotel with visits to Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan -- www.irtsociety.com
