Thailand - Full-Time Travel



Travel past tropical hillsides and magical temples.

Journey to a world where classic glamour and modern metropoles meet to create a unique Southeast Asian experience. The Eastern Oriental Express offers guests the chance to experience the wonders of Singapore, Thailand and Malaysia, from urban to rural landscapes, by railroad. With several run dates and routes available year-round, the Eastern Oriental Express is an opulent and adventurous way for travelers  to journey through Southeast Asia. 

Did You Know?

Centered around the Chao Phraya river, Bangkok, Thailand is often thought of as the gateway to Southeast Asia. But, did you know, it’s the only country in Southeast Asia that was never colonized by a European country? While it may be filled to the brim with a diverse range of tourists, this country is uniquely its own, from Buddhist shrines to floating markets. When you visit, be sure to carve out enough time to explore Bangkok’s famous sites like the Temple of the Emerald Buddha (Wat Phra Kaew) and Damnoen Saduak Floating Market!


Eastern and Oriental Express Train

When a train car becomes your hotel room, the train itself becomes the best place to explore. Designed with luxury and comfort, the train has opportunities for unique photo opps and relaxation in every car; the open observation cart at the end of the train provides views of landscapes passed while allowing guests the chance to breathe in the fresh, tropical air.

Dining options on the Eastern Oriental Express include much more than a bar cart menu. Locally inspired dishes complemented by both the attention to detail of the dining car interiors, the passionate professionalism of the staff and the tropics in motion outside, make the dining experience on the Eastern Oriental Expressunparalleled. From the menu, don’t miss the medallion of beef with foie gras croquette, Asian vegetables, vindaloo and mustard sauces.

By day, travelers can explore each unique destination with planned local adventures like a tour through lush rice paddies or a visit to the elephant sanctuary. By night, the only stop you’ll be making is at the bar cart for signature cocktails and nightly entertainment.

Ocean Restaurant by Cat Cora

Dining underneath the stars is nice and everything, but have you ever dined immersed in water? Ocean Restaurant by Cat Cora is Southeast Asia’s only underwater aquarium dining experience. Located within the S.E.A Aquarium on Sentosa (an island off of the southern coast of Singapore), the restaurant provides guests with the opportunity to eat the culinary creations of America’s first Iron Chef while colorful schools of fish, sharks and other sea creatures swim by. Try the Pearl Of Ocean for a mouth watering finale—the dessert is a sugar cloud with passion fruit espuma butterscotch sauce.

Cabbages and Condoms

In Bangkok, be open to doing things a little differently. Cabbages and Condoms is a contraceptive themed restaurant featuring Thai cuisine, and well, a whole lot of condoms. On the menu you’ll find tasty Thai classics from soups and curries to noodle dishes. While you might be leaving feeling about 9 months in after dining at Cabbages and Condoms, don’t worry, they’re “guaranteed not to cause pregnancy.”
