-Best Train Journeys in the World-
Arguably the slowest ‘express’ on the planet, the 180 mile ride on this delightful route takes a good 8 hours. Not that we are complaining about the pace as this offers you loads of time to catch a glimpse of the magical panorama that lies on its path, which links the two mountain resorts of St. Moritz and Zermatt in the Swiss Alps. 291 bridges, 91 tunnels and an altitude of 6,670 feet make this train ride similar to an expedition through fairyland.
Spectacular,stunning and picture perfect, this is a trip that the shutter bugs will really love!
Pride Of Africa:
The Pride Of Africa is a train journey that no nature lover should ever miss if they wish to explore the beauty, majesty and the hidden grandeur of the spectacular Dark Continent at a leisurely pace. Apart from the impeccable comfort it has to offer, the once in a year trip planned on the ‘Pride of Africa’ will take you on a 14-day epic expedition through Cape Town, Dar Es Salaam, Kimberley, Pretoria, the Kruger National Park, Beit Bridge, Bulawayo, Victoria Falls, Lusaka and through Tanzania to Dar Es Salaam.
Billed as the most luxurious train in the world, you’d better not lose the opportunity if you’re planning a romantic vacation through the heart of Southern Africa.
Eastern And Oriental Express:
Stretching between the ultra-modern Singapore and Bangkok, and traveling through lush green tropical forests, the Eastern and Orientalis modern, stylishand comfortable.
Apart from all the delights it offers in terms of cuisine and hospitality, the train journey presents a perfect window into South-East Asia,its changing topography and the contrast between its urban present and its naturally-endowed past.
Royal scotsman: If you are getting on board the Royal Scotsman, then you must have really deep pockets - it’s the most expensive train ride on the planet. Just consider the fact that a 4-day trip on the Royal Scotsman costs more than an entire 19-day first-class trip on the Trans-Siberian, and you will get the idea. The observation car accommodates 36 passengers (yes, only 36 passengers allowed) in comfortable armchairs along with cabins specially designed for dining and other purposes.
The train pulls over at night when you need to sleep and while the trip offers a great passage throughlittle known waterfalls, mountains and valleys, it is obviously not for everyone.
