Exciting news for 2017

From 2017, we are excited to announce that our Chinese private train, the Shangri-La Express, will feature en-suite cabins as standard for Gold Class and Imperial Suite passengers on our Silk Road departures.

Unquestionably the finest private train available in China today, the Shangri-La Express offers comfortable living with a choice of en-suite, double bed accommodation or traditional-style cabins, with a shared toilet and shower facility in each carriage and a twin bed arrangement.

As part of our Silk Road rail journeys, spend 10 nights aboard our flagship luxury train, the Golden Eagle, exploring the ancient trading cities between Moscow and Almaty, before transferring to the Shangri-La Express for 3 nights as we continue our voyage from the Chinese border to our final destination of Beijing. Also available in the opposite direction.

The Shangri-La Express will also feature on the Tibet and China Rail Discovery tour in October 2017. For a more detailed look at the trains on these journeys, follow the links below.
