7-day / 6-night tour of MALAYSIA and THAILAND aboard the Eastern & Oriental Express, Oct. 27-Nov. 2, 2013.
7-day / 6-night train tour departs Oct. 30, 2012, and Feb. 4 & Nov. 24, 2013. Highlights: “Sacred thread” ceremony in Isan village / silk weavers in Phanom Rung / Chiang Mai elephant camp / Khao Yai National Park, home to elephants, gibbons and birds.
I would highly recommend the 14-day rail journey aboard Rovos Rail’s Pride of Africa from Cape Town, South Africa, to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, offered by The Society of International Railway Travelers (Louisville, KY; 800/478-4881)
