LUXE by EXO, the boutique luxury brand of EXO Travel, today announced two magical new journeys through tropical Asia aboard the iconic Eastern & Oriental Express.
The Enchanting Eastern & Oriental Express Bangkok To Kuala Lumpur tour combines luxury city stays with a three-day southward rail journey from the Thai capital through Kanchanaburi and southern Thailand across the border to Malaysia.
Before boarding the train, guests have a chance to explore the City of Angels with two nights at the lavish new Capella Bangkok on the Chao Phraya riverfront and a day trip to the famous floating markets of Damnoen Saduak. After that, it’s all aboard the Eastern & Oriental Express, first stop Kanchanaburi, where there’s a wide range of activities to choose from. Back onboard, guests enjoy cultural excursions and elegant onboard dining events when not soaking up the passing scenery from the train’s open-air observation car.
For a longer journey that covers more of Southeast Asia, guests can embark on the Enchanting Eastern & Oriental Express Bangkok To Singapore tour. After arriving in Kuala Lumpur, travelers remain onboard the train for an additional night and continue on to Singapore, pulling into the Lion City after breakfast the following morning. Guests then spend two nights in luxury accommodation in Singapore, visiting the Super Trees and enjoying their choice of cultural activities.
