It’s said that 30 million people travel on India’s railway system every day – a statistic not hard to believe if you’ve ever scrambled though the mêlée of porters and passengers trying to board a long-distance express out of New Delhi station! No such hurly-burly, however, attends trips on the country’s glittering Luxury Train services, on which you can travel around the country in the high style of India’s Maharajahs, pampered by turbaned attendants in sumptuously decorated carriages.
There are five luxury trains to choose from in India. While all offer high standards of service and comfort, they follow different routes and excursions.
If this is your first trip and you’d like to tick off the great sights of the Golden Triangle, the Palace On Wheels is probably the one for you. Its main competitor, the Maharaja’s Express, is a newer and more luxurious option; while the Deccan Odyssey offers more innovative, off-track routes further south.
