Amid mist-shrouded jungles, terraced rice paddies, and golden temples, the magic of Southeast Asia casts its spell. No wonder that, in deciding to expand its horizons, Europe's world-famous Orient-Express looked to the East. The Eastern & Oriental Express brings the luxury and service of its famous European sibling to an intriguing list of journeys through Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Laos. Sticking to long-established standards, the E&OE nevertheless embraces the subtleties and mysteries of this most exotic corner of Asia.

For guests of the Eastern & Oriental Express, it's love at first sight. Smiling staff members greet travelers at the platform and guide them aboard. The train is remarkable. Elegant green and cream carriages set the stage for a once-in-a-lifetime experience of luxury accommodations, gourmet dining, cocktails in the open-air observation car and special local entertainment. Along the way, there are side-trips to bazaars, natural wonders and UNESCO World Heritage sites.

Eastern & Oriental Express journeys are designed to suit a variety of interests and last from three to seven days. Guests can choose to explore all or part of the E&OE's signature route which extends from the captivating city-state of Singapore to the walled city of Chaing Mai, Thailand's ancient "Rose of the North."

The most popular itineraries offer opportunities to experience the mystical allure of Bangkok, Malaysia's multi-cultural food capital: Penang, the infamous River Kwai Bridge and much more. Additionally, a limited number of select "Chronicles of Asia" immerse discerning travelers into the region's cultures and habitats. Experiences range from elephant-spotting at Thailand's Khao Yai National Park to temple-hopping in Vientiane, the capital of Laos.

Accommodations are elegant, inviting and up-to-date. Wood-paneled cabins are exquisitely decorated and feature panoramic picture windows and private baths with shower. Plush touring lounges by day, they are transformed into sumptuous bed chambers by night. Choices include comfortable Pullman Cabins, roomy State Cabins and spacious Presidential Cabins.

Onboard chefs transform the E&OE into a gourmet restaurant on wheels. Relying on fresh seasonal ingredients, they combine the best culinary traditions of East and West into a Eurasian fusion menu that is both classic and unique.
