Day One: Singapore – Kuala Lumpur

On arrival at The Fullerton Hotel you are greeted by the Eastern & Oriental Express team, who assist with your luggage and check-in formalities. You will be escorted to Woodlands Railway Station, where your steward warmly welcomes you aboard and shows you to your elegant cabin. The train leaves Singapore and crosses over the Johor Causeway into Peninsular Malaysia. As the journey continues northward you are served a refreshing afternoon tea in your cabin. Stroll along to the Observation Car to admire the passing scenery of lush landscapes and rural settlements. Later, dress for an exquisite dinner of eastern and western specialities in the Restaurant Car, followed by an enticing cocktail or liqueur in the Bar Car where our resident pianist plays. The train stops at the historic Kuala Lumpur Railway Station for the night. Retire to your cabin, which has been transformed into an inviting bedroom.

Day Two: Kuala Kangsar

As the train travels through the verdant rainforests and rural west-coast towns of Malaysia, enjoy a leisurely breakfast in the comfort of your cabin. Arrive at Kuala Kangsar and alight for your guided tour of the fascinating royal town, taking in such sights as the golden-domed Ubudiah Mosque, one of Malaysia’s most majestic temples, Perak Royal Museum and the Sultan Azlan Shah Gallery. Rejoin the train for lunch and spend a relaxing afternoon either in your cabin, the bar or the Observation Car looking out for the picturesque limestone massifs that rear up from the rice fields. As the train crosses into Thailand, the scenery changes to include wing-roofed Thai temples and bustling stations. In the evening, further culinary delights are served in the Restaurant Car, after which you may wish to enjoy a convivial drink in the Bar Car before your final night’s sleep on board.

Day Three: River Kwai – Bangkok

Following breakfast in your cabin, disembark at River Kwai Station late morning 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, lunch is served as the train makes its stately way towards Bangkok, arriving in the late afternoon. Alight here for your onward travels.
