Limited availability for 2017

One of our exciting new journeys for 2017, the Tibet and China Rail Discovery, is already proving extremely popular and as a result we only have a limited number of en-suite cabins remaining!

The Shangri-La Express train features two categories of cabins; Diamond Class, which benefit from large double beds and en-suite bathroom facilities, and Heritage Class, which feature two lower berth single beds and guests have the use of a shared toilet and shower in each carriage.

Combining spectacular Chinese destinations with one of the world’s least known places, Tibet and its mystical capital Lhasa. Enjoy a rail tour with a difference that offers a magical exploration of Tibet, known affectionately as the Roof of the World and home to more Himalayan peaks than anywhere else, before traversing across the grand wilderness of China through stunning scenery and ancient cities.
