Must do's aboard the Eastern & Oriental Express
Ulf Buchert, train manager of the Eastern & Oriental Express, has his favourite, not-to-miss moments. Many of them happen in the open-air Observation Car, so order a Planter's Punch and join him there…
Into Thailand's Northern Mountains - Bangkok to Chiang Mai
The round trip from Bangkok features spectacular changes of scenery. Make sure you're ready to enjoy them from the moment the train sets off.
Heading south through Thailand and Malaysia - Bangkok to Singapore
We travel south towards the equator through rice fields and rubber plantations. Make sure you're ready from the moment the whistle blows to soak up the amazing cityscapes of Bangkok.
Northbound along the Malay Peninsula: Singapore to Bangkok
As the train pulls off, be at the ready as the skyscrapers of central Singapore are swiftly swapped for tropical greenery and the causeway over to Malaysia. The golden domes of mosques shine out among slender trees.
