Our twin-berth cabins are the perfect private retreat, comfortably furnished and traditionally decorated with the varnished wood and brass reminiscent of a different age. Each includes a ‘Pullman’ table and deeparmchair alongside a large picture window; a perfect place from which to take in China’s ever-changing scenery. A state of the art shower car complements the two washrooms in every sleeping carriage.
The Shangri-La Express features a ‘Heineken Shower Car’ – probably the best shower car in the world. Features include shower, dressing vestibule area, mirror with lighting, hairdryers and shaving plug sockets therefore offering passengers the chance to freshen up in a spacious area and comfort whilst travelling.
Meals are served in the train’s spacious restaurant cars, where dedicated chefs serve a western breakfast followed by a wide range of authentic Chinese specialities at lunch and dinner, using only the finest local ingredients. As well as soft drinks, tea and coffee, meals are accompanied by a selection of wines from around the world. Enjoy complimentary 24hr coffee, tea and mineral water on board.
Equally special is the unique ambience of the piano bar car, where the resident pianist is always happy to take requests. Staying open until the last person leaves, the bar is the perfect place to get to know your fellow passengers, or simply wile away some time, reading or taking in the scenery while enjoying your favourite drink.
