The World’s Best Luxury Trains

In a world where time is a luxury, take a leaf off the glamour of slow-moving transportation rather than zipping from one place to another. At least, give it a try ‘Encompass’ style. Whether you're exploring the Andes or speeding through a Japanese island, luxury train travel proves to be more interesting. We bring you some of the world's most glamorous trains. Book a vacation with Encompass Experiences for a different luxury holiday that will be forever etched in memory. Here are our top 5 recommendations:

1. British Pullman, A Belmond Train, England
Call yourself a fan of director Wes Anderson? Then this ride will instantly draw you in. Embark on a vintage train adventure inspired by his distinct style, eye for detail and proportion. On the British Pullman, A Belmond Train, guests can ride in the "Cygnus" carriage built in the 1950s, on different routes across England. With themed rides, including a murder mystery luncheon, or star guest-chef dinners, this ticket is sure to transport passengers into some memorable scenarios.

2. Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, Europe
The Venice Simplon-Orient-Express is famous for more reasons than one. The train runs from London to Venice, stopping in Paris and Verona on the way. The cars are decorated in Art Deco style, creating an old-school ambience. The food is sourced along the route with specialities from different cities being presented for meals.

3. Rovos Rail, South Africa
Get first-class seats (pun intended) to diverse landscapes in South Africa on the Rovos Rail journey from Pretoria to Cape Town. The three-day excursion takes passengers through an array of environments, from the grasslands of Highveld to the desert of Great Karoo. The view is particularly dazzling from the train's open-air balconies on the observation car. The train stops in the Cape Winelands for a parting drink before leaving passengers at the station in Cape Town.

4. Maharajas' Express, India
The Maharaja’s Express train is ranked among the most luxurious vacations one can have on the rails. Every car on a Maharajas' Express train has a private butler, who indulges you with conveniences through the eight-day "Heritage of India" tour. It includes stops in Mumbai, Udaipur, Jodhpur, Jaipur, Agra, and Delhi. Be sure to sign up for the presidential suite for some extra pampering.

5. The Canadian, Canada
Travel through the Great White North while being snug in your cabin on The Canadian. The train runs from Toronto to Vancouver, taking 4 days. Along the way, soothe the eyes with magnificent views of waterfalls, charming small towns, and the grand Rocky Mountains. Take the train in winter for the best views of snow-capped peaks and endless fields of white powder.
