2. Enjoy a luxury journey from Bangkok to Singapore
Once in Bangkok, one of the worlds busiest and most fascinating capitals awaits. Enjoy cooking classes, river sailings, vast temples, ancient stilt-homes, and all the fantastic Thai cuisine that you can squeeze into your stay.
Over the next two nights, onboard the Belmond Eastern & Oriental Express you’ll be pampered, from Afternoon Tea in the cabins to the evenings spent wining and dining in the restaurant and bar car – the lush landscapes of Malaysia passing you by through the window. Stops can sometimes be made on the train when pre-booked and depending on the route, whether to hike amongst the greenery, visit rural villages, or you can break the trip in two by also combining a visit to the capital of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur.

With a flight between the two-cities being a quick hop, taking the train between Singapore and Bangkok is all about the journey. The Eastern & Oriental Express trains transport you back to the ‘golden era’ of train travel. Think mahogany woodwork, mood-lit carriages by lamps, and fine-dining rooms with all the silverware, there’s even a piano bar on board!
