http://www.buddhabus.co.uk/index.php?page=bb_home

BuddhaBus is an overland adventure. The viable, low cost alternative to flying, it is the most environmentally efficient way from the UK to Asia overland. The Buddhabus will take you from London to Xinjiang Province, China, a destination in itself and your gateway to India, Tibet, Japan and South East Asia.
We are unique in offering a luxury, express overland service and do so at a price far lower than other companies. Plying the ancient Silk Route through Central Asia, we take in historic capital cities, mountain ranges and desert, crossing 10 countries before reaching our destination in Urumqi, China.

Through far-flung and exotic places, far from the well-trodden tourist routes, BuddhaBus takes only 16 days to reach its destination, but also allows time to relax and reflect. Mini breaks in Warsaw, Moscow and beautiful Almaty guarantee passengers are able to appreciate the highlights of the trip at their leisure.

At BuddhaBus we believe in the power of travel. To broaden the mind, to stimulate the senses; the perfect antidote to the stresses of the modern world. A slower pace of travel that allows an appreciation of landscape, of people and of culture, and one that enables a gradual acclimatisation as we cross from West to East, and back again.
