The finest luxury train ride in Asia is the Eastern and Oriental Express train. It runs from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur across the Malay Peninsula, and then on to the capital of Thailand, Bangkok, offering unmatchable scenery and the very best of asian landscape beauties.
The Eastern & Oriental Express is an experience never to be forgotten. The journey links the vibrant cities of Singapore and Bangkok, and includes a tour of Penang’s capital Georgetown and a short cruise along the River Kwai. Every moment is to be savoured.
The time in the train is full of diversion. The dining car will offer the best of European and Asian specialties served by white clad waiters in fantastic porcelains, sparkling glasses of the finest crystals, and gleaming silverware. The resident pianist can be found in the Bar Car, a great place where to relax and meet fellow travelers. However, the most popular place on board is the open decked Observation Car, which provides an unbeatable opportunity to enjoy the beautiful scenery.
On board the Eastern & Oriental Express, accommodation is in one of three grades of phenomenal compartments: Presidential Suite, State Compartments and Pullman Compartments. Each grade of compartment is fully air-conditioned with an en suite shower, washbasin and WC as well as impressive picture windows to grasp every bit of the gorgeous scenery outside. While you dine at night, your discreet and friendly steward transforms your compartment from a living room to a bedroom.
A journey abord the eastern and Oriental Express certainly is a trip never to be forgotten.
