Tap into the electric pulse of South East Asia’s most vibrant cities as you travel between Bangkok and Singapore aboard the Eastern & Oriental Express. With 3-nights aboard one of the world’s most luxurious trains, this 8-day ultra-luxe package is perfect for those who want to experience the very best of these ultra-modern and stylish cities and everything in between, in slow pace and in style.
To step onboard is to step inside another world…
Your journey through the exotic East begins in Bangkok, Thailand, a city of contrasts with action at every turn. Uncover the city’s most important landmarks with a guided tour of the Grand Palace and the temples of the Reclining and Emerald Buddhas and spend the rest of your time exploring at your leisure. Marvel at the flashing neon lights, catch a tuk tuk through bustling Chinatown and eat your way through humble street stalls to romantic rooftop restaurants.
Then, it’s all aboard the Eastern & Oriental Express, where you will slow down and step into a world of classic glamour. Over four unforgettable days, journey deep into the countryside of Thailand and Malaysia – and deep into the past. Travel through lush green rice paddies and limestone massifs and spend time in remote villages, where you’ll have the chance to meet and get to know the locals. Learn the fascinating WWII history of the River Kwai and Death Railway, take a traditional Thai cooking class and visit a working fruit and rubber plantation – these are just some of the immersive cultural experiences that await.
Your rail journey of a lifetime ends in cosmopolitan Singapore. Known as the “Lion City”, Singapore boasts an exciting blend of Malaysian, Chinese, Indian, Arab and English cultures – all with their own Singaporean twist. Staying two nights in a famous 5-star hotel, you will have ample time to tick off the must-see sights and indulge in the shopping, dining and nightlife that make the city famous. Cap it all off with a drink or swim at the iconic Sands Skypark for the ultimate Crazy Rich Asians experience!
In addition to the Eastern & Oriental Express, you’ll stay in some of the world’s best hotels: the Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok, and Raffles Hotel or Capella Singapore. Aboard the train, enjoy sumptuous feasts served on silverware, world-class champagne, wine and cocktails and jazz-club music lingering in the air. The internationally renowned chefs and bartenders will tantalise you with the colours and flavours of East meets West. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are sure to rival any dish from the world’s best restaurants.
This ultra-luxe 8-day package includes 7-nights’ luxury accommodation on a twin share basis (including 3 aboard the Eastern & Oriental Express). Gourmet meals and beverages are included as specified along with off board excursions, English-language guiding and transfers.
All aboard the Eastern & Oriental Express for a whirlwind Old-Hollywood style voyage through the exotic East. Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore come alive on an adventure brimming with romance, style and indulgence.
