Journey Highlights

Depart Singapore and embark on a lavish rail journey to Bangkok on board the Eastern & Oriental Express, by Belmond. Glide and weave your way through the rubber plantations, gaze out as daily life passes you by and capture the verdant landscape. From locals on their bicycles and over-crowded mopeds, to pretty temples and mesmerising lakes, you'll want your camera to hand at the Observation Carriage. Be spoilt with Belmond's incredible on board butler service and elaborate fine dining. Every meal is an occasion to truly savour with fine porcelain, sparkling crystal glass and several courses. Stop at the River Kwai, visit the emotive museum for the fallen and stroll around the military cemetery before arriving into bustling Bangkok. Following a brief city stop, fly to the tropical island of Koh Samui for a heavenly beach retreat in a luxury hillside pool villa.

Singapore

Staying at

Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore

+

Singapore is a city, an island and a country. Its location, at the tip of the Malaysian Peninsula, makes it the true crossroads of Asia. In fact, it's a perfect place to break your journey when travelling on elsewhere in the Far East or Australasia. Shopping is a major attraction in Singapore, with antiques, electrical goods and clothes being excellent buys. Sightseeing opportunities include Chinatown, Arab Street, Little-India and, for panoramic views across Singapore and the southern islands, take the journey up to the top of the Sky Tower. The riverside area is one of the main venues for entertainment, with Boat Quay and Clarke Quay offering an eclectic mix of restaurants, alfresco dining, lively bars and jazz venues. And no visit to Singapore is complete without enjoying a Singapore Sling cocktail at the world-renowned Raffles Hotel Singapore, where the drink was created.

Highlights

An oasis within the city, guests can explore the extensive gardens, relax by the large pool, visit the Chi Spa, step out to shop on Orchard Road and dine at The Line. It's a great option for families too.
