Have you always wondered what it’s like to travel long-distances via train much like on the Orient Express? Now you can travel in luxury with Belmond’s Eastern & Oriental Express train experiences that lets you travel from Singapore to Bangkok in ultimate comfort and style!
The Eastern & Oriental Express Train is the epitome of opulence and luxury, modelled after vintage sleeper trains and complete with ornate and richly-coloured silk touches, plush seats, polished wood panelling, elegant lighting and more! Trains are fully equipped with private cabins (convertible sofa beds or bunk beds) that include en-suite bathrooms and showers, so you can rest assured that you’ll be getting a good night’s sleep while aboard the train. 24-hour steward service is available for your every need, as well as onboard entertainment such as live piano music to soothe your senses as you chug along.
As for food, all meals are provided: you’ll be served a continental breakfast in the comfort of your own cabin, while the rest of the meals are served in the Dining Car, so you can enjoy the scenic view as you zip towards your destination. Eastern & Oriental Express serves course meals for lunch and dinner, as well as a spread of sandwiches, pastries and biscuits for high tea. On the menu are sumptuous international and local-inspired dishes like pan-fried scallops, Thai prawns, Eggs Royale, Nyonya curry and more! Unlimited house wines, spirits and beer are also offered at no extra charge.
Needless to say, such luxury comes at quite a hefty price tag, with a one-way trip from Singapore to Bangkok starting from USD$2,948 (~SGD$4,043) per passenger. Nevertheless, it is guaranteed to be an experience you won’t forget. For more information on what’s included in the package as well as the travel itinerary, see here.
