Episode Summary

Eastern & Oriental Express
This 13-part series offers a fascinating look at international train travel. Not only do we get a close-up look at the type of train used and the accommodations offered, but we are able to observe points of interest and various landscapes along the route until we reach our final destination. This segment covers the Eastern and Oriental Express, which makes a two-thousand mile journey straight through Southeast Asia from Singapore to Bangkok. It is one of the world's most luxurious train routes. Travelers are pampered in beautiful compartments with exclusive five-course dinners. We pass by a fantastic mixture of Eastern cultures with unmistakeable Western influences here and there. Our final destination is the famous bridge over the River Kwai.moreless
