Boats & Trains

On an intrepid holiday, a journey can be half the adventure. And with Ampersand’s top picks you’ll almost be sorry you’ve arrived! We can highly recommend exploring South East Asia on the Eastern & Oriental Express train journey or a jaunt through North India on the lavish Maharajas’ Express, which snakes through the region’s finest jewels including the statuesque Taj Mahal. Experience a different viewpoint of your destination by luxurious river boat and discover the secrets of the Mekong or the longest river in Burma, the Irrawaddy. For a truly knock out nautical adventure, take to the remote eastern seas of Indonesia on a traditional luxury sail boat, like Tiger Blue, Si Datu Bua or Silolona.
