Day One: Bangkok

Board the gleaming carriages of the Eastern & Oriental Express at Bangkok’s Hua Lamphong Station in the evening. Your steward will show you to your elegant private cabin, where you have time to settle in as the journey begins. Make your way to the teakwood Observation Car to enjoy spectacular open views of the sun setting over the lush landscapes. Return to your cabin to dress for dinner before taking your seat in one of the sumptuous Restaurant Cars. Indulge in a gastronomic feast of eastern and western specialities, expertly prepared by our onboard chefs. Afterwards, you may wish to enjoy a convivial nightcap in the Bar Car while being entertained by the resident pianist. Retire to your cabin, which has been converted into a cosy bedroom by your steward.

Day Two: Kanchanaburi

As morning breaks in rural Kanchanaburi Province, breakfast is served in your cabin. Later, the train arrives at River Kwai Station, where you disembark for your chosen excursion:

  1. Classic Tour

Cruise along the Khwae Yai River aboard a local raft, taking in views of the splendid Thai teakwood houses along the banks. Your guide provides an insight into the building of the infamous railway and bridge, which were constructed by allied prisoners in World War II. After the cruise, board a coach to the Thailand-Burma Railway Centre and perhaps pay a visit to the Don Rak War Cemetery before returning to the train.

  1. Cycle Tour

Board a private coach to rural Nong Kao village for your hour-long bicycle tour. Cycle through the verdant rice fields, stopping for a fascinating demonstration at a local Thai farm and refreshments. Return to the Traditional Thai Wooden House for a relaxing herbal infusion before returning to the train by coach.

  1. Culinary Tour

Your guided tour begins with visits to a vibrant wet market and an acclaimed rice noodle house where you will get an insight into the traditional processes used. You then proceed to Wat Nue Pier to board a river raft and participate in a traditional Thai cooking class on board as you sail along the River Kwai. Disembark at Chong Kai War Cemetery for an optional visit before returning to the train by coach.

Back on board, a leisurely afternoon awaits. Take time to relax and recharge your batteries before preparing for a sumptuous dinner, preceded perhaps by one of our enticing signature cocktails in the Bar Car. Overnight on board.

Day Three: Kuala Kangsar – Kuala Lumpur

Indulge in a lie-in before breakfast in your cabin as the train enters Malaysia. Observe how the landscape changes to include dramatic limestone massifs rearing up from the rice fields. Spend your morning at leisure, reading, chatting with fellow guests or gazing at the passing scenery. Lunch is served before the train arrives at Kuala Kangsar, where you disembark for a guided tour of this fascinating royal town. See the golden-domed Ubudiah Mosque, one of Malaysia’s most majestic temples, Perak Royal Museum and the Sultan Azlan Shah Gallery, then rejoin the train as it continues southwards through the lush rainforests and rural west-coast towns of Peninsular Malaysia. Prepare to enjoy another magnificent dinner and convivial evening in the Bar Car. Overnight on board.

Day Four: Johor – Singapore

Breakfast is served in your cabin as you savour the last leg of your journey. Course through expansive palm plantations dotted with traditional settlement homes in the southernmost state of Johor. Cross the Causeway over the Straits for a late-morning arrival into cosmopolitan Singapore, your final exciting destination.
