Luxurious Train Journeys
There is an undeniable old-world charm and vintage appeal to a train journey. It is a great way to travel across a country, though a bit different. After all, what could be better than waking up in your restored 1920s-style private cabin to the sight of an Australian outback, a quaint Indian village or Cape Town’s dramatic coastline racing past outside your window.
The Orient Express, an iconic itinerary, has been revived as the Venice Simplon- Orient Express, in all its artdeco glory a magical recreation of the 1920s. The train runs through cities like Venice, Paris, London, Budapest, Prague and Istanbul.
Another exotic option is the Hiram Bingham Machu Picchu Express in Peru which goes through some of the most picturesque regions of Peru, the ancient city of Cusco, the Sacred Valley of the Incas and, of course, Machu Picchu.
