8 Ways to enjoy Ultra Luxury by Orient Express

 Orient Express is not only all about trains…

The legendary Venice Simplon-Orient –Express Train offers a journey unlike any other. Step aboard and you step back into a more gracious, elegant age of travel evoking romance and adventure. As well as travelling to classic destination_blogs like Paris, Venice, Prague and Istanbul – this world renowned train started to visit Scandinavia with journeys to the capitals of Stockholm and Copenhagen in April 2013.

Explore Scotland aboard Orient Express’s Royal Scotsman train carrying only 36 guests in a casual luxury country house atmosphere. Its smart maroon coaches have large en-suite cabins and also include a lounge/observation car, and restaurant cars.

Sail along the quiet Waterways of France on one of five exclusive luxury barges with their spacious and luxurious facilities with Afloat in France. Travel along canals and rivers in Burgundy, Provence and Canal du Midi.

Discover the Magic of Asia aboard the Eastern & Oriental Express Train; enjoy luxurious en-suite cabins, adorned with decorative marquetry. Travel between Bangkok and Singapore, or venture more off the beaten track onto the heart of Thailand, The Cameron Highlands, Kuala Lumpur or Laos.

Board the luxury ship, The Road to Mandalay carrying only 82 guests, and glide smoothly along the Averwaddy River, lined with ancient palaces and pagodas. Orient Express’s latest ship in Burma, The Orcaella with its petite size can take you to more remote rivers and areas.

Take a day trip on a British Pullman from London or the Northern Belle from stations in the North, dress up and enjoy fine dining served by liveried stewards helping to recreate the golden days of the famous Pullman trains. Great for celebrating that special occasion or company outing.
