VIDEO: Eastern & Oriental Express – Singapore To Bangkok

Earlier this year we had the opportunity to travel on the Eastern and Oriental Express from Singapore to Bangkok – the 3-day trip was one of pure indulgence with good food, beautiful views and 5-star service!

It’s a beautiful train and a trip of a lifetime, and we made a short video summing up our experience – check it out below:

      Thanks Benjamin, glad to hear you like our videos! Train travel is our favorite way of traveling too, there is something adventurous about that sort of transport, I think.

    You experience this charm of Thailand and Malaysia with the journey of Chiang Mai to Bangkok then on wards to Singapore. You can shopping in famous river Kwai and Penang along the way.

    This is a nice travel when we ride the train. We can see the surroundings even we are inside the train. we can make a photo while the train is moving. We love it..

    Wonderful! Surely it was a great experience for both of you. :)

    May both of you will be safe in your next trip to Malaysia. Due to massive immigrants coming to Malaysia and high cost of living, crime rates are increasing.

    I would like to suggest you to experience ‘homestay’ in any Malay village in rural area. You will love it!

    Wow, looks like a pretty serious train. I’d ride that thing for a month!
