Overview
'Trains are wonderful . . . to travel by train is to see nature and human beings, towns and rivers, in fact, to see life'. So said Agatha Christie when talking about the golden age of travel which lives on today aboard the luxurious Eastern & Oriental Express train. On this four day trip you wind through some of the world's most beautiful and exotic landscapes, on route from Thailand, through Malaysia to Singapore. 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 experience. Enjoy gourmet dining, cocktails in the open-air observation car and special local entertainment as your adventure unfolds.
Day 1
Depart Bangkok
Your luxury rail adventure begins in Bangkok, the bustling capital city of Thailand. The Eastern & Oriental Express departs the city in the early evening so you have time to explore before going to the station. Having been welcomed on board the gleaming carriages, settle into your comfortable cabin. Dinner is served as the train travels from Bangkok into the countryside with its rice-fields, villages and water buffalo. Then retire to your cabin, which has been transformed into a cosy bedroom by your steward.

Day 2
Wang Po & River Kwai
Wake early to experience the excitement of the train making its way from Wang Po along the wooden trestle viaduct beside a towering cliff. On arrival at the River Kwai Bridge station, the E&O stops so you can take a guided boat tour along the picturesque Kwai Yai river. On board, a local historian gives a talk on the history of the railway and the bridge. Visit the North Temple and Chinese Cemetery and the Thailand-Burma Railway Centre. There is also time to visit the Don Rak War Cemetery next to the museum. Other tours such as a cycle tour or a culinary tour are possible, please ask for more details when you check in on Day One of your journey.

Later reflect on the day's sights over dinner and relax with a drink in the Bar Car before retiring for the night.
