Ever been on a journey where the journey itself matters more than the destination? Aboard the Eastern & Oriental Express, you’ll experience just that. Departing from Singapore, the train makes its way through Malaysia, with a stop-over in Kuala Kangsar before arriving at its destination, Bangkok. Although, you can commence your journey in Kuala Kangsar, or only do the Singapore-Malaysia leg.
In this day and age where we are often hurrying to get to places, the train offers an alternative — a chance to take it slow, and enjoy the ride. On board, enter a whole new world and experience the grandeur of a bygone era. With luxe colonial-style interiors that draw inspiration from the endless beauty of Asia, you’ll be transported back in time.
Bask in the sunlight in the observation car while you take in the ever-changing landscapes, or make merry in the piano car, where the resident pianist enthrals with sentimental tunes while you leisurely sip on a cocktail.
