Welcome to Khabarovsk

The Far East’s most pleasant surprise...

What a beautiful city, very picturesque with wide-open tree-lined boulevards.

Lonely Planet sum it up well; "The Far East’s most pleasant surprise, Khabarovsk boasts a dreamy riverside setting, vibrant nightlife, lots of greenery and boulevards lined with pretty tsarist-era buildings."

Situated on the massive Amur River (home to the Amur River Sturgeon you can see in our earlier aquarium post) Khabarovsk is a far cry from the dreary congestion of Vladivostok.

Due to massive flooding along our planned route, we ended us staying here three nights instead of the planned two while we waited to hear that the roads through the Tulun region had re-opened. Apparently 15 bridges were washed out with 9m of flood waters along the route.
