The iconic Eastern & Oriental Express train company has announced its return to the rails for February 2024. On board its luxurious Belmond trains, the company is offering two seasonal journeys from Singapore to discover Malaysia. Come aboard and discover this South Asian country!


After a long period of suspension, the Belmond Train of the Eastern & Oriental Express, Southeast Asia, has announced its return to the rails in February 2024.


The train will offer two new seasonal journeys from Singapore, traversing the ever-changing landscapes and bustling cities of Malaysia: Essence of Malaysia (November to February) and Wild Malaysia (March to October). The iconic train’s 15 dark-green carriages will depart from Singapore’s Woodlands station and travel to destinations including Penang, Langkawi and, for the first time, Taman Negara National Park, before returning to the Garden City.



With its refurbished interiors, exceptional on-board experiences and journeys that blend culture, gastronomy, art and architecture, the Eastern & Oriental Express continues to elevate rail travel in the region to new heights. And setting a standard of excellence unmatched in Southeast Asia.


The “Essence” of Malaysian culture


The Essence of Malaysia tour is a three-night excursion through the wonders of western Malaysia. It takes you from Singapore to the colorful island of Penang, via Kuala Lumpur and Langkawi. After a relaxing day on board, passengers disembark the train at Alor Setar and embark on a private cruise to Langkawi. For the first time, the Eastern & Oriental Express offers passengers a snorkeling excursion to explore the rich underwater life of Pulau Payar Marine Park, Langkawi’s finest snorkeling site.
