Asia 5: SE Asia - The Eastern and Oriental Express

Asia  5: SE Asia - The Eastern and Oriental Express

Everyone loves an exciting and adventurous train ride, but this isn't just a train ride. It's the Eastern and Oriental Express, the luxury train that travels through the heart of Southeast Asia! Following the success of the famous Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, the luxurious E&O Express made history on its inaugural run in 1993 and continues to recapture the golden age of rail travel through one of the world's most beautiful and exotic regions. The E&O Express has it all: while passengers absorb the beauty of the lush countryside, they also enjoy comfortable and elegant accommodations, delicious Asian and European food and, of course, superb service. Join us as we experience this wonderful trip. Our journey begins in Bangkok, Thailand, a beautiful city with friendly people. Along the way the train stops in Malaysia, and we take a land tour to the island of Penang, the "Pearl of the Orient" in the Strait of Malacca, to see Georgetown, a World Heritage site famous for its architecture and cultural diversity. We tour the city by trishaw, a quaint three-wheeled vehicle, and visit the Indian Market before returning to the train. Our train journey ends in Singapore, a cosmopolitan city and world financial center with a multi-cultural population, but our experience isn't complete until we see the city itself. While there we visit a Taoist temple built in 1850 and explore Little India to learn more about that culture. The E&O Express truly is a unique way to experience the full wonder of this remarkable region. 02/10 IJSCA 30 min.
