There’s travelling in style, and then there’s travelling on the Eastern Orient Express. No expense has been spared in providing South East Asian visitors with one of the most elegant and sophisticated train rides in the world. Spacious compartments are adorned with cherry wood walls and boast oversized windows to capture the sweeping views. As chefs prepare your sumptuous meal using fresh, local produce, you can sit back and listen to the resident pianist tinkle the ivories and sip on the train’s signature cocktail, the Shanghai Express.
If it wasn’t for the breathtaking views of golden temples, soaring mountain ranges, lush rainforests and vibrant local villages you could almost forget you were on a train at all. Built in 1972, the Eastern Orient Express boasts 22 carriages including a library car, two Presidential sleeping cabins and an observation deck. This luxury train travels over 2000 kilometres through Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. You’ll be seduced by its old world charm, which is beautifully juxtaposed by the vibrant, modern images flashing outside panoramic windows.
