Eastern & Oriental Express almost needs no introduction – long-distance luxury train travel lives immortal in the words of Agatha Christie and Paul Theroux, on the silver screen of epic James Bond escapades, and in the travel logs of history's rich and famous. Multiple itineraries, ranging from two to six nights, run through Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and China on the sister train to Europe's legendary Venice Simplon-Orient-Express.
Recline on crisp white linens in a cabin adorned in wood paneling and intricate marquetry. Watch Southeast Asia glide by – maybe you're careening through a dense forest in southern China, or returning the wave of a boy farming a rubber plantation north of Kuala Lumpur. Call for croissants and tea to be delivered to your cabin. Mingle with other passengers in the teakwood Observation Car. Don your finest apparel for after-dinner socializing complemented by a pianist.
