Stay grounded this year with two new journeys on luxury train Eastern & Oriental Express. One is a six-night experience from Singapore to Bangkok departing on March 29, starting from a night’s stay at Raffles Hotel and includes en route activities like snorkelling and a boat ride to an island for a beach barbecue. The other is a two-night trip from Bangkok to Chiang Mai on Oct 15, with a city tour of Lampang in horse-drawn carriages, originally imported from England for use by Thai nobility.
