Eastern & Oriental Express, Bangkok, Thailand

This one needs no introduction. The Eastern and Oriental Express is all your Agatha Christie fantasies come true and the perfect way to explore Asia with four different itineraries available, all based in Bangkok.

A quarter of a mile in length, The Eastern & Oriental Express' 66 cherry wood and elm burr-panelled cabins whisper through the unimaginably beautiful landscape of South East Asia in complete luxury.

Tailor-make your trip with The Chronicles: four journeys that explore Thailand’s remote Isan plains, Malaysia’s Cameron Highlands, mysterious Laos, the colonial splendour of Kuala Lumpur, and the evocative Bridge over the River Kwai.

The aim is to combine the Far East’s natural beauty, tranquility and intrigue with colonial-style luxury – which it does in spades.

Elegant wood panelling, lacquered Chinese decoration and lustrous silverware is matched only by the welcome from the Thai staff – incredibly gracious, warm and proud to show you their country. They’re also proud of the dining car’s innovative Eurasian fusion cooking.
