Eastern & Oriental Express

Asia Great railway journeys

Introduction

For the chance to see some local colour and explore a destination intimately and leisurely, take the train through Asia; watch the landscape roll past outside and witness all life take place on the platforms and stations that you pass through, unless you're hurtling along on Japan's Bullet Train, when all will be a blur.

To see a large chunk of South East Asia, board the Eastern & Oriental Express in Bangkok and travel through Thailand and Malaysia to arrive in Singapore. The four-day journey allows you to explore these destinations in slow style, whilst enjoying exceptional levels of comfort.

India can be enjoyed on board the Maharajas' Express, which travels from Delhi to a variety of destinations over four to eight days. Itineraries include three pan-Indian Journeys and two Golden Triangle tours and take in places including Agra to see the Taj Mahal, Ranthambore, Jaipur, Bikaner and Udaipur amongst others.
