THE TRAIN SO­JOURN

Singapore Tatler Wedding - - HONEYMOON -

BEL­MOND AN­DEAN EX­PLORER Noth­ing says ro­man­tic get­away like a jour­ney across Peru on a re­fur­bished train from the 1990s. South Amer­ica’s first lux­ury sleeper train, Bel­mond An­dean Ex­plorer takes you from Cusco to Lake Tit­i­caca (Puno) and Are­quipa along one of the high­est routes in the world. Take in breath­tak­ing sights of nat­u­ral won­ders as you sip on a glass of Pisco Sour from the open deck of the ob­ser­va­tory car, or watch them glide past your win­dow in the com­fort of your per­sonal cabin. Each cabin is dec­o­rated in rich, Peru­vian ac­cents and hand­wo­ven fab­rics, and fea­tures an en-suite bath­room and shower. A mod­est li­brary lined with travel lit­er­a­ture, a gift shop, a fully-stocked bar with live mu­sic, and a spa cabin will rem­edy your rest­less­ness—if any—on board the oneor two-night voy­age. Cou­ples with a taste for epi­curean de­lights will not be dis­ap­pointed by the menus de­signed by chef Diego Muñoz, which show­cases the full spec­trum of Peru­vian flavours pre­pared with lo­cal pro­duce. WHY IT’S PER­FECT: There’s no bet­ter way to be­gin your mar­ried life than with an ad­ven­ture-packed jour­ney on board a train to sat­isfy your wan­der­lust. Af­ter all, there is a bo­hemian charm about spon­ta­neous trips to lit­tle-ex­plored lands over moun­tains, forests and deserts. The Bel­mond An­dean Ex­plorer takes you across pic­turesque scener­ies to Cusco, Puno and Are­quipa—for an un­for­get­table Peru­vian ad­ven­ture that chris­tens your first steps as new­ly­weds. You’ll be rem­i­nisc­ing this trip for years to come. bel­mond.com/trains
