Luxury Train Travel Asia

Whether you want to traverse the tea plantation-dotted Hill Country of Sri Lanka a scenic train journey from Ella to Kandy, or speed through the Japanese countryside on a Shinkansen Bullet Train, we know all the best and most luxurious ways to travel Asia by train.

Luxury train travel in Asia doesn't come much more opulent than the Eastern and Oriental Express from Bangkok to Singapore. Sliding through lush green jungle and passing by numerous temple and villages, this train will take you between two very different but endlessly interesting Asian cities in total comfort and with gourmet food and drinks to enjoy on board.

Alternatively, head to Vietnam to make the overnight train trip from the bustling city of Hanoi to the mountain town of Sapa, known for its beautiful landscapes dotted with verdant rice paddies; Sri Lanka for scenic routes through the Hill Country between Ella and Kandy; or head to Japan and hop on a high-speed Bullet Train for day trips out of Tokyo, or to speed your way from between Japenese cities.

If it's a multi-stop luxury train journey you're interested in, head to Java in Indonesia. Here you can explore the whole of the island - from Jakarta in the west to Bangyuwangi in the east - by train, including a journey from Yogyakarta to Surabaya (which you can use to combine the iconic temple of Borobudur and the impressive Mount Bromo), and a route from Probolingo to Banyuwangi to combine Mount Bromo with Mount Ijen.
