Amazing Luxury Train Travelling Adventures

Mar 8, 2008
Chugging of the train, the whistles as it laps up the miles all seem to be a tale of days gone by. Our fascination for the simpler life of the past has not dimmed though, and that is what the top luxury trains concentrate on. They may not advertise it as ardently as their counterparts in the cruise industry do, the fact remains that these trains give you a once in a lifetime experience of a unique blend of two contrasts; luxury and simplicity that few can match.

Life seems to be in a hurry; from horses and camels, we have moved on to jet planes, bullet trains, cruise ships and speedy cars - all rushing from one destination to another. What we still need from time to time is that link with the past which has gone missing in our day to day routines.

Luxury train travel could have been the bullet trains of our day, so adapt at taking passengers from one underground to another that its is mere routine to board one and catch a nap till you have to get off. When it comes to luxury train tours though, the slow paced trains of the early nineteen hundreds have been preferred and restored to their former glory, and more, even adding the modern plumbing mechanisms to them so the time spent aboard these trains is just that, luxurious with no downsides.

The best feature of these luxury train rides though is the serenity and contact with nature and culture of the areas visited. All the top train tours will take you through the wilderness, mountains and over rivers. While the interior of the train will be the world of luxury and opulence, beyond the window will be the scenes you would not see in a city; of stags and wild flowers the life we have shut out in the cities.

Contact with nature is possible otherwise too, a camping trip would be a more immediate contact, this however is for those of a refined taste with a mere matter of personal suites in the train for the duration of the trip. Lavishly opulent dinning halls with a waiter in a tux at your call, cuisines from around the world served for to spoil your taste buds, bars, and luxury lounges are just the beginning of the facilities available in these trains, literally making them cruises over the train tracks but then again, no cruise could take to sites these trains do.

Many of the start and finish destinations have last minute hotels, so you can book your hotels and your train tickets with minimal stress.
