PALACE ON WHEELS (8 DAYS)
CITY INFO :
Duration 7 Nights/8 Days
A new Palace on Wheels in Rajasthan
The colourful state of Rajasthan now has a splendid new Palace
on Wheels on its broad gauge railway. The special journey, after
having enthralled thousands of rail buffs earlier, can now be
made in greater comfort and luxury.
The carriages have been individually designed and specially
constructed at the integral Coach Factory at Perambur in South
India. The train offers one glorious week of travel, recapturing
the pomp and pageantry of royal past in incomparable style.
The new saloons are done in delicate cream, with a border of
flowers. The train is fully vestibuled and air-conditioned.
Completely self-sufficient, its public places include two
restaurant coaches and a bar with an attached library.
Deep veneered wood encases large picture windows through which
guests an see the country side of-a thousand-battles slide
effortlessly past, and a stark landscape broken by groups of
colourfully-dressed-women or ragged dune-top fortress. Inside
the train, lights glow intimately and stained glass mirrors
reflect a myriad images.
Soft music plays in the background as master chefs serve up
superb meals and the barkeeper mixes your favourite cocktails.
Blinds in traditional colours are layered across windows in a
manner reminiscent of palaces.
The 14 coaches are named after former Rajput states. Each evokes
visions of those royal kingdoms. The names are romantic and
mesmerising... Kota Jaipur, Udaipur, Jaiasalmer, Bikaner, Alwar,
