    Airfare...Vladivostok-Chicago

    Has anyone ever taken this route? Do you know how much is an acceptable price?
    Chicago - Moscow one-way is about $350, however Vladivostok - Chicago one-way starts at $1000! (according to www.priceline.com and www.expedia.com)

    Don't you have to go through Korea to get to the Far East now? A round trip ticket is cheaper in the long run, and easier to buy here before you go than trying to buy a return ticket there.
    Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore.

    You could also go to Moscow then change planes to Far East. But the drawback there is you have to change airports and SVO 1 sucks.

    smartdude, i asked this question like 6 months ago. I think if you do a search for it you can find it, but if my memory serves me right we concluded that

    1) It's way more expensive than, say, flying to moscow and going there by a connectin flight / and or train

    2) It's way longer to fly from the west coast of the USA to the East of Russia. It's quicker to go by plane to moscow, and then plane to the east.

    3) It's just not worth the hassle for 1st (your second) trip to russia. It's more of a "ok, been to russia done that, lets go east" kinda thing.

    Why dont u check out some towns in the urals or something, or if ur so daring, go to kazakhstan. I heard vladivostok blows anyways.

    Or maybe try vladikavkaz , if you want some exitement.

    Actually a rather rich friend of mine wants to take a trip on the Trans-Siberian Railroad at some point. Moscow-Vladivostok. He asked me to try to find some information about it, and here I am. I appreciate the help though.
