January 31 to February 12, 2014

Revel in a railway journey of a bygone era with Professor Carl Bielefeldt as we travel through Thailand and Malaysia aboard the deluxe Eastern & Oriental Express train.

Description:

First, spend three nights in bustling Bangkok, where we tour the grand palaces and temples along the Chao Phraya River, and cruise to the site of Ayuthaya, Thailand’s ancient capital. Then board our luxuriously appointed train for a three-night journey through the Thai- Malay peninsula, admiring the local scenery of water buffalo grazing in rice fields and stopping in quiet villages and towns. In Singapore, disembark the train and fly to Bali for three nights at our seaside resort. Learn about life and ritual in an artisans’ village and browse the famed Ubud market with its exotic displays of Balinese crafts, spices and gifts.
