Eastern & Oriental LuxuryTrain

Description

The golden age of travel lives on today aboard the Eastern & Oriental Express luxury train and on this wonderful three day journey from Singapore to Thailand you will have time to fully appreciate it. Winding through some of the world's most beautiful and exotic landscapes, the train journey begins in Singapore and takes you the length of Malaysia before arriving in Bangkok, the exciting capital of Thailand. Mountains, forests, fascinating towns and golden temples create a rich tapestry of life along the way. This sister train to Europe’s Venice Simplon-Orient-Express offers an equally exciting on-board experience. You will enjoy gourmet dining, cocktails in the open-air observation car and special local entertainment as your adventure unfolds.

Day 1
Singapore

Please make your way for check-in at Raffles Hotel from 1300hrs (check-in closes @ 1430hrs) Guests will then Transfer to Woodlands station for the Eastern & Oriental departure at 16:00 Having been welcomed onboard the gleaming carriages, settle into your cabin. Enjoy the passing scenery as the train crosses to Malaysia via the causeway of the Straits of Johor. Lunch is served in one of the opulent dining cars. Dress for dinner and then spend a relaxing evening in the Bar Car in the company of our resident pianist.

Day 2
Malaysia to Thailand

At the mainland station, disembark for the crossing to Penang and a guided introductory tour of the historic town of colonial Georgetown with pre-World War II mosques, elaborately-roofed temples, churches, bazaars and colourful shophouses. Reboard the waiting coaches for the short ferry ride back to Butterworth and the Eastern & Oriental Express for lunch. As the train crosses into Thailand spend the afternoon watching the changing scenery from the open deck of the Observation Car or relax in the comfort of the Saloon Car. Dinner is served in the sumptuous dining car.

Day 3

After breakfast E&O arrives at the River Kwai Bridge station where the train stops to allow you to disembark. Guides escort you on the short walk down to the jetty to board a local craft for a cruise along the lush greenery of the picturesque Kwai Yai river, passing under the Bridge. On board, a local historian provides a brief overview of the history of the Thailand-Burma railway and the bridge. At the E&O landing point board a motor coach for a brief trip past the North Temple and Chinese Cemetery to the Thailand-Burma Railway Centre.
