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.
When it comes to planning your trip, our team of Asia travel
specialists are here to help. With hands-on experience and passion
