From engineering mastery and guaranteed jaw-dropping scenery, we
have the inside track (sorry, couldn't help it) on some of the best
train routes spanning the Eastern side of the globe. We can talk
you through everything from the best routes and times, to the best
compartments and the most luxurious trains. Plus, bonus points
all-round - the carbon
emissions are a fraction of those produced from flying.
When making a list for travelling Asia by train, you'll want the
terrific tracks through the Tea Hills that link Ella to Kandy, in
Lanka, right at the top. The train traverses Sri Lanka's steamy
tropical mountains, winding through glossy green hills and
manicured tea-terraces, whilst avoiding a long and bumpy car ride.
For a touch of luxury why not climb aboard the Eastern and Oriental
Express from Bangkok to Singapore. An elegant affair, this train
traces its way through Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore complete
with fine dining and onboard entertainment; the trip proves that
the journey is just as important as the destination. If taking it
slow is not your thing, the Japanese
bullet trains might be. There might not be so much scenery to
be seen, as a multicoloured blur passes by your window, but the
convenience and the experience make up for it.
To ensure you make the most of your trip, our team of travel
experts can curate a tailor-made luxury itinerary that's full to
the brim with tours and experiences that are handpicked for you, so
whether you are on a train, between trains, or at your destination,
we have got you covered.
