Rail holidays in Asia

Rail holidays

Enjoy Asia through the romance of rail. Where flights offer convenience, travel by rail delivers breathtaking views, cultural immersion and ample time to really experience the country through which you are traveling.

The railroads of Asia reflect the continent's diversity. Be they iconic, quaint, or plain exciting, a train trip on your journey will be one of its highlights. To be taken back to an era of grand train travel, ride the colonial-style Victoria Express from Hanoi to the spectacular mountainous area of Sapa. What better way to arrive in the mysterious land of Mongolia than by the legendary Trans-Mongolian Express? Leave the bustle of Beijing behind and watch as the scenes from your window change from urban jungle to open plateaus. On a Japan Small Group Tour, criss-cross the country at 200mph on its famously efficient system, marvelling at the cutting-edge technology of the Shinkansen bullet train while views of Mount Fuji fly by.
