London - Dhaka - By Rail 

If you have a taste for adventure and 23 days to spare, you will soon be able to take a 7,000 mile rail journey from London in the UK to Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. Of course, to really enjoy the trip you may want to explore some of the venerable cities on route.

The United Nations-sponsored scheme, links London, Brussels, Cologne, Vienna, Bucharest, Istanbul, Tehran, Quetta, Lahore, Amritsar, Delhi, Calcutta and Dhaka; it incorporates one of the old Trans-Asian Silk Paths and is already laying claim to being the world's greatest railway journey.
