TRAIN TOUR - EASTERN ADVENTURE BY RAIL IN NORTH KOREA

 Guidepost Tours is proud to announce a new stunning travel opportunity that crosses North Korea overland by train from Pyongyang all the way to the rarely-visited East and North-East Coast, and the major industrial city of Chongjin. As this area was previously only accessible from Pyongyang by a special charter flight, you will be the first foreigners to experience the seasidespectacular scenery between the capital and the remote North-East Coast as travelling this route by train has never been possible before. The long journey northwards from Hamhung to Chongjin will reveal entire parts of the country never before seen by foreign eyes, as our train meanders its way through remote mountains and along the pristine coastline of the DPRK’s far North East, stopping at as-yet-undiscovered cities such as Sinpho and Kimchaek and passing by isolated beaches. This special tour also includes full tourist itineraries in all the cities of the East and North East of the country. We will be travelling in vintage 1970s carriages with Korean diesel locomotives and fully-functioning restaurant car, and will be the first foreign tour group to travel overnight by train within the DPRK, as we make our way non-stop back from Chongjin to Pyongyang at the end of the trip. As a final bonus, we will take a ride on a local tram and trolleybus in Pyongyang on the final afternoon. Contact Guidepost Tours for information and reservations. (Gpt-Koryo)

TAIWAN RAILWAY ADVENTURE with Bob Daniel - November 2016

 Taiwan is a treasure: mountainous, scenic and full of contrasts, it’s a melting pot of cultural influences from Asia’s great powers. This autumn adventure begins in bustling Taipei, now home to some of China’s most important art works and tallest buildings. You’ll be whisked by high speed train to the magical resort of Sun Moon Lake and then climb sedately – on Victorian era switchback railways – the mountains and giant cypress forests of Mt Alishan. Continue the round trip by rail heading south to Kaohsiung City, and across to historic Taitung and then, hugging the east coast, journey along the ravines and cliffs to the stunning Taroko Gorge. Along with the island’s famous natural beauty, hot springs and fascinating indigenous cultures, modern Taiwan is bursting with friendly energy. Its luxury accommodation, delicious food and sensational shopping are legendary. No wonder the old Portugese mariners called it Lila Formosa, ‘The Beautiful Island’, and that was before there were any railways to marvel at!   Reservations on Scott McGregor's Railway Adventures only with Guidepost Rail Tours.
