Travel luxuriously and comfortably around Malaysia from across the border as Belmond’s Eastern & Oriental Express Train experience returns to serving in Singapore after four years!

The luxury vintage train offers a fine dining experience and a deluxe cabin stay for a days-long trip along the lesser-known scenic routes within cities and the outskirts of the urban areas. Guests will be able to explore the beauty of Penang, Langkawi, and Taman Negara National Park throughout the journey.

Now offering two routes, interested travellers can choose between The Essence of Malaysia and Wild Malaysia itineraries. The Essence of Malaysia is a three-night excursion where you can explore the country's key western cities: Kuala Lumpur, Langkawi, and Penang.

Here, you’ll have the opportunity to snorkel and explore underwater life in Langkawi’s prime snorkelling spots before heading to Penang for exciting activities like joining a cooking class or touring around photo spots in Penang.

Meanwhile, Wild Malaysia, a newly introduced route, is perfect for those who are down for a wilderness adventure. It will travel through areas surrounding the “Jungle Railway” going to the Eastern side of the peninsula before reaching the Taman Negara National Park.

On this trip, you can enjoy a variety of activities such as learning about the conservation of the Malayan Tiger and attending a photography masterclass or a jungle foraging experience.

While on the train, you can sit down and savour Southeast Asian dishes in their dining cars or take in some fresh air while enjoying the view in the observatory car. You and your loved ones can also gather around the Piano Bar for some nostalgic melodies.
