From the moment you are registered on platform 12 at Hualapong station in Bangkok to your arrival in Woodlands Singapore- you will surely find a major tick in your "things to do before you die" list.
Staff: Best i have ever encountered in any trip, holiday or visit anywhere.
Food: As good as any top restaurant in any major city in the world.
Entertainment: Depends on crowd- ours was up for a party which made it great fun from start to finsih - and made some great new friends.
Room: Booked state room - which was fantastic, plenty of room for all you need to do and very very comfortable.
Stops: River Kwai and Penang in Malaysia excellent - shorter than expected due to delays - but still enough time to enjoy the experience.
Scenery: excellent scenery - can get a bit samey at times- but even sitting inside the bar at the back of the train drinking a cup of tea, a beer, glass of wine- or whatever and watching the world go by while chatting to new made friends was just perfect.
Ride: very bumby first night- but as the track got better entering Malaysia side - it evened out. So no sleep first night- but nights 2 and 3 was just fine.
Piano lounge: Excellent way to end the night- Peter on piano would play most tunes you asked for. We had a party and danced, sang and drank til the wee small hours- especially on the final evening.
