Voyaging through Singapore, travelling in Thailand, Malaysia and crossing into Laos. The Eastern & Oriental Express train offers luxury travel through some of the world’s most exotic landscapes. Sister train to Europe’s legendary Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, the train was built in Japan in 1972. Remodelled by Gérard Gallet, the man behind the British Pullman and the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, it offers a South-East Asian travel experience like no other.



Located at the rear of the train, make your way to the colonial-style, teakwood Observation Car for sightseeing by day and cocktails and entertainment after dark.

Part of the carriage is outdoors for wonderful photo opportunities throughout your journey.



Choose between three grades of comfortable, wood-panelled cabins—Pullman, State and Presidential Suites—all decorated with exquisite marquetry.

The Eastern & Oriental Express offers guests four categories of elegant private cabins: Pullman Single, Pullman, State Cabin and Presidential Cabin. Most offer twin-sharing accommodation; all are fully air-conditioned with an en-suite shower and toilet.

Cherrywood and elm burr panelling provide the backdrop for decorative marquetry friezes and intricate design inlays that enhance fine fabrics and carpets.

The Pullman Cabins have upper and lower berths, while State Cabins and the Presidential Cabin offer two single beds at floor level. All Pullman Singles offer one single bed at floor level.

During the day, berths/single beds are converted into comfortable seating, so guests can relax and enjoy the magnificent unfolding landscapes.

Each air-conditioned cabin has an ensuite shower and lavatory, and large picture windows. Your cabin steward will look after you during your journey 24 hours a day.
