THE EASTERN & ORIENTAL EXPRESS

by Richard Barrow

These are some pictures of the Eastern and Oriental Express at Bangkok Railway Station in January 2020. This is luxury travel at the highest level. The train goes between Bangkok and Singapore with stops in Kanchanaburi, Butterworth and Kuala Lumpur. If you take the entire route, I would recommend that you do that, it takes two nights and three days. But, it doesn’t come cheap. Particularly if you are travelling alone and want your own cabin. I just took a quick look on their website and we are talking about at least $8,000. I was hoping to take some pictures inside the train, but security wouldn’t let me in. Maybe another time I will get a chance.
