MUST DO’S ABOARD ::
When the train pulls out of Bangkok station position yourself in the open-air observation car to see, smell and “feel” the local life along the tracks.
About ten minutes after Ayutthaya look to your left and see an impressive golden Buddha.
When we stop in Lop Buri, look out for all the wild monkeys in the trees, parks and streets. The train snakes through the Northern Thai jungle as it climbs uphill to Chiang Mai.
Sit in the observation car and breathe in the fresh, morning scents of the forest that surrounds you.
When in Chiang Mai ask the locals where to get kao soi, a famous local dish of noodles with a chicken drumstick in a tasty curry gravy.

A journey aboard the Belmond Road To Mandalay river cruiser always yields surprises. The Ayeyarwady reveals countless hidden delights, as does all of Myanmar.
This could be heaven. We are on the open deck of the river boat, Belmond Road To Mandalay, gently cruising through Myanmar. The temperature is perfect; a light breeze ruffles the air. The ship seems to be gliding, noiselessly, through the sunshine. A sharp sound briefly breaks the silence – a primitive diesel engine on a small boat striving to restrain two vast, attached barges piled high with tree trunks carefully labelled in Burmese script. It passes in a flurry of friendly hand-waving – the river navigator’s semaphore.
The 1300-mile river rises in the high Himalaya to the north and issues its sandy content into the azure Andaman Sea. Its distinct personality encapsulates the land it bisects: mysterious, resource-rich, unpredictable, hospitable, agrarian, and – peppered with stupas and shining temples around every lazy bend – deeply devout.
