BLOW OFF SOME STEAM

The Peak (Malaysia) - - Travel • News -

With how fast-paced our life­styles have be­come, one would yearn for some sem­blance of ca­sual if not slow form of travel, where the de­light of the hol­i­day is re­ceived from the jour­ney and not the des­ti­na­tion. Wel­come aboard the el­e­gant car­riages of the Venice Sim­plonOri­ent Ex­press, a hid­den jewel amongst a tide of rushed and packed trans­porta­tion sys­tems. An 18-car­riage train that rein­tro­duces us back to the glitzy and glam­orous days of the 1920s, this pri­vate lux­ury train tra­verses across Eu­rope host­ing trips be­tween Venice, Verona, Lon­don, Bu­dapest and Paris. The rooms avail­able on board, from the solo trav­eller ‘Sin­gle Cabin’ to the fam­ily-sized ‘Grand Suites’ are all decked out with old Hol­ly­wood class and style, but that’s not all. For the Gour­mand who re­quires a var­ied palate, there are 3 din­ing car­riages upon which are 3 restau­rants and a bar, re­ver­ber­at­ing the iconic art deco in­te­rior of the 1920s’, pro­vided of course with unique din­ing ex­pe­ri­ences made from lo­cal, sea­sonal pro­duce by Ex­ec­u­tive Chef, Chris­tian Bodiguel, who has been aboard the Sim­plonOri­ent Ex­press for 30 years now. En­joy this slow paced jour­ney across Eu­rope, and feel like a vin­tage movie star in this once in a life­time ex­pe­ri­ence.
