All Aboard the World's Longest Train Journey 🚂

From Portugal to Singapore — The Journey is the Reward

Published by

Discover the longest train connection in the world!

Until now, the longest train route was "only" around 10,500 miles long, but thanks to the opening of a new connection in Laos, it now measures an impressive 11,654 miles. The journey starts in Lagos in the very south of Portugal and finally ends in Singapore. On the way, it runs through Paris, Moscow, Beijing, and Bangkok, among other places.


Train lovers have planned and calculated the longest train journey in the world, and according to their estimates, it would take at least 21 days nonstop.

To plan this journey, it would have to be done DIY-style by booking several train tickets and planning a few overnight stays, in between. In the end, this would account for more travel time. You could initially plan stops in Lisbon, Madrid, and Moscow.

If you follow the above route, you could also take advantage of the stops to explore any of the 13 different countries you pass by. Spain, France, Poland, Russia, China, Thailand, and Malaysia are examples of great locations to visit. Along this journey, you'd also be able to ride on the famous Trans-Siberian Railway.

The journey starts in Lagos in the Algarve

This adventure on rails not only takes a lot of time but is not exactly cheap. The train tickets alone cost around $1,350. There are also costs for overnight stays, visas, and much more. A flight would obviously be cheaper, easier, and above all much faster, but of course, that's not what rail enthusiasts are interested in. After all, it's not the destination, it's the journey!

Singapore is the end of the journey
