Itinerary

Flight to Singapore
Day 1-3

City Centre, Singapore

Welcome to the buzzing and diverse city of Singapore, where your limitless journey will begin. Lose yourself in the indulgent ambiance of the Raffles Hotel, where you will be staying for the next two nights, very much the iconic landmark of Singapore’s colonial past. Refresh after your journey at the rooftop swimming pool in its lush garden setting or visit the exclusive sanctuary of the Raffles Spa for a thorough unwind.

When you are not making the most of the exceptional facilities at Raffles, you will have a day to explore the city as you wish. Private guided tours can be arranged with our expert guides, ready to show you the architecture, culinary delights (including a Michelin-starred street food tour) and cultural highlights that Singapore offers, taking in Singapore's most interesting sites and the highly recommended National Orchid Gardens.

Accommodation: Raffles Hotel Singapore ( 2 nights )
Day 3-4

City Centre, Singapore

Today you will get to say hello to the undeniable ageless indulgence of the Eastern & Oriental Express. Bid farewell to Raffles as you are transferred to the iconic handsome green and cream carriages of this timeless icon, reigniting the golden age of glamour, ready to take you through the wonders of Malaysia. This is truly a voyage of a lifetime, offering the perfect blend of relaxation on board and an inspiring exploration off the train filled with specially curated excursions to enhance your journey.

Begin the journey with an exquisite afternoon tea in your cabin taking in the country views as you head towards the sites and lights of Kuala Lumpa as your next destination. As evening falls it’s time to dress for dinner, ready to devour the sumptuous flavours of the locally inspired specialties from the first-class chef team in the Dining Car. The following morning you will be offered breakfast in the Dining Car as you relish in the beauty of the countryside as you pass rice paddies and timeless rural villages of Malaysia.

After a delicious lunch, alight for a boat trip to Langkawi’s Pulau Payar Marine Park, renowned for its vibrant underwater life, from parrot fish and angel fish to moray eels and grouper. When you are not exploring this area on foot, snorkelling or paddleboarding, you can choose to unwind with wellness experiences. Or simply just sit back and relax in paradise with a drink from the bar.

You will leave the train for now as you are transferred to your hotel for the next six nights staying at the luxurious beach retreat in Langkawi, The Datai.

Accommodation: Eastern & Oriental Express ( 1 night )
Day 4-10

Langkawi, Malaysia

Lean into the tranquillity of The Datai, one of the most luxurious resorts in Malaysia and your home for the next six nights. This hotel provides an idyllic natural retreat nestled in the depths of the rainforest, while also cushioned by the horseshoe bay with swathes of white sandy beach, giving you the very best of both to explore. The friendly welcoming staff are ready to offer you a decadent stay with sensational personalised service to accompany the standout facilities. Allowing you to do as much or as little as you wish during your stay here.

For a deserving slice of relaxation, the Spa is beautifully integrated into the forest, overlooking a stream and is spectacular in its setting, design and range of indulgences. For those who can tear themselves away from the idyllic beach, there are a whole host of activities to keep you busy. Daily nature experiences can be arranged, including a fleet of boats for island hopping, fishing and sailing, to exploring the rainforest right outside your room door to cooking classes and golfing at The Els Club Teluk Datai.

Throughout your stay you will indulge in sensational meals bursting with flavour, where the many tranquil bars and alfresco nooks dot the resort, creating the perfect cocoon to relax in this island paradise. Your time here will be nothing short of exceptional, but as your stay draws to a close the excitement will start to build for your final three days on board the nostalgic and lavishly appointed Eastern & Oriental Express, as you continue your journey through Malaysia.

Accommodation: The Datai Langkawi ( 6 nights )
Day 10-12

City Centre, Singapore

Once again you will board the Eastern & Oriental Express with much anticipation, ready for dinner and an evening in the Piano Bar Car.

Next morning you will arrive in Penang Island. Here you will have a choice of exclusive excursions to join whilst you are here. The first is a discovery of the local Peranakan cooking, where you will visit a traditional spice shop and grocery stores to choose your ingredients, before creating enticing local dishes. For those with a passion for culture or art, this will be the experience for you, as you visit the Georgetown Old Quarter to see stunning temples, a contemporary studio and an opera and puppet house. Or you may choose to explore the area independently with the assistance of your private tri-shaw! Armed with a map and driver, you can explore Georgetown’s picturesque streets at your own pace.

After an exceptional morning you will re-join the train at Butterworth for a delicious lunch and a relaxing afternoon on board watching the diverse scenery pass you by as you head to your final destination. In the meantime, you are invited to a final evening of celebrations where you will be spoilt with irresistible cuisine and entertainment. If you’re still up shortly after midnight, you’ll glimpse the bright lights of Kuala Lumpur as the train passes through.

The following morning you will take breakfast in your cabin as you pass through Johor, as you relish in the striking beaches and rainforest views before the strait into Singapore where you will embark for your onward journey, brimming with the many magical memories made on this on this grand adventure through Malaysia.
