    Railbookers has announced a unique “Around the World by Luxury Train” itinerary, a first-of-its-kind trip taking travellers across the globe in first-class rail fashion.

    “The demand for luxury rail from our customers continues to grow, and in response, we’ve created the ultimate bucket-list trip,” president and CEO, Railbookers, Frank Marini, said.

    “As we’ve seen a trend to combine itineraries to include multiple luxury trains, we’ve tailor-made this itinerary along with smaller, customisable itineraries featuring these iconic trains as a highlight of our industry-leading luxury rail collection.

    “Best of all, once the train ride is through, Railbookers takes care of hotel, sightseeing, transfers and more at the destination for a complete one-call solution. We’re thrilled to give our travel advisors and guests an opportunity to see the world right outside their window in total luxury.”

    In between train journeys, Railbookers’ guests will be treated to luxurious hotel accommodations in many of the world’s finest cities.

    The trip begins in Vancouver and continues in European capitals and charming cities like Budapest, Edinburgh, Florence, London, Paris, Rome, and Venice. Air connections will allow travellers to see Delhi, Mumbai and Istanbul in Asia, as well as Cape Town and Johannesburg, South Africa before the once-in-a-lifetime journey wraps up in Southeast Asia, exploring Singapore and Malaysia.

    “Belmond is excited to be a part of this incredibly unique journey created by Railbookers, featuring some of the world’s most iconic trains including the legendary Venice Simplon-Orient-Express and Royal Scotsman as well as the newly relaunched Eastern and Oriental Express travelling between Singapore and Malaysia,” VP trains and cruises, Belmond, Gary Franklin, said.

    “With growing demand for luxury rail experiences, this is the ultimate, once-in-a-lifetime trip.”
