The Eastern & Oriental Express


The golden age of travel lives on aboard the magnificent Eastern & Oriental Express train. Journey between Bangkok and Singapore for the perfect introduction to the wonders of Asia and enjoy unforgettable adventures on board the iconic green and cream carriages.

Remodelled by Gérard Gallet, the man behind the British Pullman and the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, the Eastern & Oriental Express offers a South-East Asian travel experience like no other, as you voyage through some of the world’s most beautiful and exotic landscapes. First class facilities and refined touches, such as personal 24-hour steward service and a grand, open-air observation deck, all add to the feeling of glamour and style on board.

Lavish, wood-panelled cabins have been designed to meet the individual tastes of discerning travellers. Each air-conditioned cabin features an en suite bathroom and large windows. By day, your cabin is a private lounge complete with banquette-style sofa; at night it's converted into a plush bedroom. The spacious Presidential Cabin offers the ultimate luxury.

Dining on board is a gastronomic experience as chefs create Asian and international specialities. Lunch and dinner are served in two fine dining restaurant cars, while breakfast is delivered to your cabin.

There are plenty of adventures to be had each time you disembark. Explore the streets of George Town in Penang, cruise along the River Kwai, then step back on board and enjoy afternoon tea, fresh fruit-tasting sessions, or simply relax on the Observation Deck.

Why we recommend The Eastern & Oriental Express

Travelling on The Eastern & Oriental Express is an absolute treat. I loved spending time in the last carriage which has an open-air compartment – a great place to go and watch the world go by with a drink in hand and the wind in your hair. The food is fantastic and an integral part of the E&O experience. I also loved getting dressed up and heading to the dining carriage; it really does make you feel as if you are stepping back into the past in a very special and luxurious fashion.
