There is something truly romantic and luxurious about traveling by train. It’s almost as though train travel is a mode of transport that evokes memories from the past. Even if we don’t have those memories ourselves, we’ve heard about such luxurious train travel as the Orient Express.
There are still fabulous trains throughout the world offering fantastic tours and adventurous journeys and a favorite is India’s Palace on Wheels. The photograph above gives you some idea of what you can expect.
The train is a ‘hotel on wheels’ with full air-conditioning and luxurious compartments with luxurious facilities. There are two opulent dining cars and you can enjoy Indian, Chinese or international cuisine of the highest standards. There are also lounges and bars for your relaxation time.
A fifteen day tour aboard the Palace will take you to New Dehli, Jaipur, the Thar Desert, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Sawai Madhopur, Ranthambore National Park, Udaipur, Bharatpur and Agra, home of the Taj Mahal.
There are plenty of exciting sights to see during your incredible journey – walled cities, deserts, temples, mansions, and you’ll also see tigers, elephants and leopards.
