Our onboard experience recalls the golden era of rail travel, when the journey itself was as enticing as the destination. We’re wined and dined while enjoying royal treatment on this train that was remodeled by Gérard Gallet, the man behind the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express.

Our journey takes us past Southeast Asia’s lush and exotic vistas — past statuesque mountains, mist-covered lakes, and serene temples. View it all from the colonial-style teakwood observation car or from the luxury of your premium state cabin. As we make our way from Singapore to Bangkok aboard this magnificent train, we enjoy meals prepared by onboard chefs who incorporate the finest locally sourced ingredients into spectacular eastern and western specialties that rival the world's best restaurants.

Breakfast & Dinner

DAY 10:

Eastern & Oriental Express / Penang, Malaysia

This morning our luxury train stops in Kuala Kangsar, Malaysia, the picturesque royal town of Perak and the official residence of the Sultan of Perak — one of the oldest hereditary seats among the Malay states. Our excursion begins at the Ubudiah Mosque, considered one of the country's most resplendent. Completed in 1917, it was designed and built by British architect Arthur Hubback, who applied the same Indian Mughal design elements to Malaysia’s Ipoh and Kuala Lumpur railway stations. Next, we visit the striking Royal Museum of Perak, an architectural masterpiece completed in 1931 as a temporary palace. Built without a blueprint and entirely without nails, its walls are woven from spliced bamboo strips with diamond patterns in the weave.

En route to the museum, we pass by one of the oldest rubber trees in the region, one of several brought here in 1882 from South America. When the auto industry boomed in the West, rubber trees became a highly lucrative crop. Our excursion concludes at the Sultan Shah Gallery, a former palace that now showcases personal belongings of Sultan Azlan Shah, including court notes from his first case presiding as a magistrate in 1958. We return to the train before lunch and spend the rest of the day leisurely taking in the passing landscapes as you continue on toward Bangkok.

A very different African experience lies ahead, as we continue our Deluxe adventure with an authentic safari visit to one of South Africa’s richest wildlife refuges.

Located in the higher, more temperate Eastern Cape region, this completely malaria-free park is home to the famous Big 5 — lion, elephant, rhino, leopard, and cape buffalo — as well as other predators like the cheetah, hyena, jackal and lynx. All meals are included during your stay at the lodge, which features traditional cuisine to enhance the safari experience.

Fall into the rhythm of wild Africa, starting with a morning game drive, when the wildlife is at its most active after the nightly hunt.

The reserve’s varied terrain and habitat, ranging from open savanna to wooded ravines and brush-covered hillsides, provides excellent viewing at almost any time of day. Lalibela’s eagle-eyed driver-guides know the cycle of the wildlife here, and can lead us to spots where we’re most likely to see animals.

In addition to the better-known wildlife, Lalibela has a variety of lesser-known species, such as the spring hare, and the rangers delight in pointing them out. There is also a plethora of birdlife to be found in Lalibela — often spotted right from your room.

Included Meals:

After, we have leisure time to relax and prepare for what’s to come this evening — an unforgettable experience that showcases Argentina’s famous tango!
