Bid farewell to Singapore as you settle into your private cabin. Relax and admire the changing views as the train rolls through the southern Malaysian countryside via the causeway of the Straits of Johor.

Day 2: Labu Kabong

Enjoy breakfast surrounded by rolling vistas. Arrive at the fascinating royal town of Kuala Kangsar, and be whisked by coach to Labu Kubong, a village set among paddy fields and a backdrop of lush mountains. Discover life close to nature in a traditional Malay village. After a warm welcome ceremony from the villagers, take a guided tour through lush rice paddies ending with refreshments and a chance to sample regional food. Alternatively, advanced trekkers can follow our expert naturalist on an invigorating hill trek. Cold towels and refreshments await at the top while you take in sweeping panoramas over the villages and plantations.

Day 3: Arrive Bangkok

After breakfast, disembark at Kanchanaburi for your choice of tour. Perhaps take the Classic Tour to the famous River Kwai Bridge aboard a local raft. Learn about the building of the infamous railway and bridge by allied prisoners in World War II. Then, head to the Thai-Burma Railway Museum for an introduction to the history of the Thailand-Burma railway and the bridge, with an expert on hand to answer questions. Or explore lesser-travelled trails by bike. Cycle through verdant rice fields, stopping for a fascinating demonstration at a local Thai farm and well-earned refreshments. Epicureans may prefer the Local Flavours tour, exploring the colourful wet market and an acclaimed rice noodle house. See the traditional processes used, then board a river raft to put them into practice in your hands-on cooking class as you drift along the River Kwai. Rejoin the train and savour the final few hours as you arrive in Bangkok.
