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.

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.

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.

Eric, my travel manager, was absolutely fantastic. He kept me informed of the travel arrangements at all stages of the booking process. The holiday was the best I've been on due to his meticulous planning and organisation - and most importantly the price was amazing. I am already in contact with him again about booking another holiday!

A little disappointing with the cost of entry visa into Doha.They charged us a total of £80.00 which we had to pay on entry both times even when the first visa was dated for one month.Best to make future customers aware.
