The Royal Orient

 

To connoisseurs of the world, very few regions can compete with the northwest border-state of Rajasthan in charm and medieval opulence. Where else can you see nomadic camel caravans cut desert tracks? Where can you still find primitive customs and rites flourishing side by side modern, cosmopolitan ways of life? Where else can you see entire villages flourishing inside magnificent forts?
Gujarat, the last western frontier, is an matchless experience. The heart of the state holds the ornamental rod. The north is a historical pageantry of many creeds. The west, soaked in antiquity, embraces one of the largest swamplands of the world. The south is a heady mix of wildlife sanctuaries, mythological pilgrim-centers, age-old carnivals and affluent port-towns. The east is urbane and aristocratic.


13 Coaches & Saloons. 13 Magnificent Periods of History.
The Royal Orient is not just an express commuter train. It is a way of life—gracious, cosmopolitan and imperial—designed to transport you back in time … to a millennium of pompous monarchy, prosperous empires and legends of courage, chivalry, patriotism and supreme devotion.

Begin at Delhi, chug along to Rajasthan, cross over and reach Gujarat. Return after seven memorable days and nights, enriched incomparably and enamored forever!

Fall in love with a medieval Rajput princess, inhale battle-scents of heroism, give way to royal fantasies, discover a lost paradise, remember the epics, dine with ferocious lions, ride the desert and rule the sea…. And, on the way … be fondled by 4000 years of abundance … in the seventh heaven of the Orient Express.


THE AMBIENCE
Liveried attendants pamper you round the clock with 5-star hotel luxuries. The “Watering Hole” bar has all your favorites and fine monarchial brews. Comfort is refined at 150C. In spacious baths, while bathing in running hot or cold water, rejuvenate your body and dream endlessly. The pantry-car offers a repast of royal delicacies that will not leave your taste buds for years to come. Finally, for that little scholar within you, a library provides the ultimate knowledge-bank of India.
