Embrace the glamour. A grand experience awaits on board The Orient Express - Asia.
The Eastern & Oriental Express, A Belmond Train, Southeast Asia, is proud to announce its much-anticipated return to the rails in February 2024. Offering a reimagined adventure of Southeast Asia in motion, the train will launch two new seasonal journeys departing from Singapore and travelling through Malaysia’s ever-changing landscapes and vibrant cities.
The iconic train will leave Singapore’s Woodlands station, taking in destinations like Penang, Langkawi and for the first time the Taman Negara National Park, before heading back to the garden city. With restyled interiors, elevated on board experiences, and enthralling journeys encompassing culture, gastronomy, architecture and the arts, the Eastern & Oriental Express continues to take railway travel in the region to new heights, while setting a new standard of excellence in Southeast Asia.
A story 30 years in the making, the Eastern & Oriental Express has been narrating adventures since its inaugural journey from Bangkok to Singapore in 1993. After American businessman James B. Sherwood purchased the luxury train carriages in Japan, they were remodelled in Singapore with elegance, echoing the spirit of ancient Indochina.
Today, the sister of the celebrated Venice Simplon-Orient Express, a Belmond Train, takes you on a grand journey in Southeast Asia to capture the heart of Malaysia.
