Eastern & Oriental Express

Owen Hardy

T

he Eastern & Oriental
Express (E&O)started
running the 1,262 miles
between Singapore,
Malaysia and Bangkok, Thailand
in 1993. It is one of the most
beautiful trains in the world,
with food-Asian/French fusion
from Executive Chef Yannis
Martineau -and service to
match. The heart of the train is
its experienced and outstanding
staff. So we recommend the E&O
wholeheartedly-but even more
so now that Belmond has added
a host of tempting upgrades.
Examples: They've trimmed the
guest capacity from 132 to 82.
The train now includes most
alcoholic beverages. And it's
developed unique off-train tours.
Among these are a visit to a wet
market and a cooking class on a
river raft; a bicycle tour through
rice fields; and a visit with a local
family. These small group outings
encourage a sense of traveling in
a private club whose "members"
get to know one another as they
venture off the train.

For the most space, spring for
one of the train's two Presidential Suites. Its guests enjoy a host
of valuable amenities such as
complimentary private limousine
transfers to/from train stations in
Singapore & Bangkok.
All cabins are air-conditioned
and include private bathroom
with sink, shower and toilet. They
are paneled with cherry wood

and elm burr with marquetry.
Beds fold into comfortable
seating during the day. All have
24-hour room service.
The Presidential Suites each
boast a whopping 125 square feet
of space, two lower berths and a
separate lounge area. The suites
each take up half a train car.
They also include:
* A bottle of champagne and fruit
basket in cabin on arrival;
* Complimentary minibar
stocked with spirits, local beer,
soft drinks and chocolate;
* Complimentary on-board
pressing service;
* Wireless speaker in cabin.
The 24 State compartments
are 84 square feet with two lower
berths, a long table and two large
windows.
The 15 double Pullmans are 62
square feet with one upper and
one lower berth.
There is one single Pullman
Suite. It is 54 square feet.

Breakfast and afternoon tea
are served in your cabin; lunch
and dinner in the two restaurant
cars, lavishly decorated with
rosewood and elm paneling.
Dining on board is a highlight:
the French chef well deserves
international accolades for his
Western-Eastern fusion styles.
Dining and service match its
sister train, the Venice SimplonOrient-Express.
The observation/bar car, with
its outdoor deck, is a favorite
spot. One-third of the car is an
outdoor viewing area decorated with teak. Its interior is the
perfect place to enjoy cocktails
amidst a 'veranda' ambiance. It
has teak wood flooring, paneled
walls, rattan furniture and potted
plants. The bar car is open all
day and late into the evening for
cocktails.
The pianist, who has become
something of a star among
guests, keeps things lively.
