What better way to explore stunning Southeast Asia than aboard the luxurious Eastern & Oriental Express. Your once-in-a-lifetime travel experience begins with a stay at the 5* Mandarin Oriental Singapore, an iconic hotel in the Marina Bay area of the city. After two nights soaking up the sights and sounds of scintillating Singapore, it’s time to climb aboard the magnificent Eastern & Oriental Express and experience a journey like no other as you travel through the heart of Southeast Asia.
Settle into your State Twin Cabin and take afternoon tea as the train rolls through the southern Malaysian countryside. This is a very special journey as it’s accompanied by celebrated French chef, Didier Corlou, and during your two nights onboard, you’ll be treated to his sumptuous Asian and western specialities. As night falls, dress for dinner and sample Didier’s exquisite cuisine for the first time, before the chance to relax with your fellow travellers over an enticing cocktail in the Bar Car. After a restful night’s sleep in your sumptuous cabin, you’ll arrive at Kuala Kangsar, where you’ll disembark the train and be whisked away to the village of Labu Kabong. Enjoy a welcome ceremony from the villagers followed by a guided walk through the rice paddies, or for advanced trekkers, there’s the option to join the expert naturalist on a hill trek, before returning to the train for a special afternoon tea, a fascinating spice atelier and another exceptional four-course dinner. As your enchanting journey continues into Thailand the next day, savour a gourmet breakfast before stopping at the River Kwai Station for your choice of excursions, whether it be a guided cruise along the River Kwai itself and a visit to the War Museum, a cycle ride through the scenic rice paddies or a cooking class and a visit to the local wet market. After a sumptuous lunch back onboard, the train arrives into Bangkok in the late afternoon. Your culinary journey may be at an end, but your unforgettable adventure doesn’t stop here, as you now have a further two-night stay at the luxurious Mandarin Oriental Bangkok. With both pre and post-journey stays included in the price, there’s never been a better time to discover the highlights of the exotic and sophisticated East.
