All over the world, there are exceptional tourist trains on board which it is possible to accomodate (almost) as in the hotel with all the comfort (or not far) necessary to spend a pleasant stay!
You will have understood, for this unique stay of its kind, only a high-end train can guarantee you to spend good nights. With our small selection of the most beautiful tourist trains, you will find some ideas in order to travel differently.
Tourist Train-Eastern & Oriental Express
From Singapore to Bangkok, board the Eastern & Oriental Express tourist train for a breathtaking tour that lets you admire some of Thailand’s most beautiful landscapes with an emotionally charged tour program.
The Eastern & Oriental Express tourist train also includes a small cruise. This unusual tourist train is known to offer impeccable service. In addition, you will find a panoramic car and two presidential suites!
Tourist Train-the Trans-Siberian
Undoubtedly the most famous of all the tourist trains of the world, the Transsiberian makes you cross almost 1000 stations in Russia but on this route, the circuits are varied and you can start your trip from several cities.
From Moscow to Beijing, you cross Mongolia. From Moscow to Vladivostok, you are no longer away from Japan. In any case you find yourself in the heart of immense regions, deserted as far as the eye can see on either side of the car. The Transsiberian seems to be venturing where no one has yet set foot.
The Trans-Siberian trains offer very variable services. This goes from the luxury train like the Golden Eagle or the great trans-Siberian Express, to the train which offers no special comfort but which promises you direct contact with the natives.
Tourist Train-Royal Gorge
There are a lot of tourist trains around the world and it would be impossible to cite them all here. Let’s finish with one of the most picturesque trains in the United States, which also allows us to admire breathtaking landscapes. It is the Royal Gorge tourist train in Colorado, a region already well known for these railway sights.
An excursion not to be missed when you go there, on board a panoramic train – windows and roof of your car let you see everything – where the kitchen is otherwise excellent.
Be careful if you do not like the thrills: the train passes through very narrow gorges through the mountains, follows the dizzying edge of the cliffs and along the rivers. A quiet and comfortable trip but better not to have vertigo.
Tourist Train-The Rocky Mountaineer
In closing, how not to talk about the Rocky Mountaineer. This tourist train travels the Canadian Rockies, a journey recognized as one of the most beautiful in the world.
Among all the prizes won by this tourist train, we mention the following:
