Palace on Wheels, India

The Palace on Wheels is just that; an opulent maharajahs palace on, well, wheels. Jewel-bright Rajasthan textiles and gold leaf decorate the cabins. The bar is a riot of red and silver satin strips and attendants in starched Punjab suits and red turbans serve a succession of succulent curries as you're transported at a dignified pace across the deserts of Rajasthan. To add to that Last Days of The Raj feel The Palace is even pulled in and out of Delhi by steam train before diesel takes over for the bulk of the trip. Side trips include quintessential Indian experiences such as a camel safari near Jaisalmer, an elephant ride in Jaipur, lunch at the Taj Lake Palace in Udaipur, and a visit to the Taj Mahal,

In India The Luxury Travel Bible also notes: the newest luxury train - the Maharaja's Express, as well as the Southern Indian Golden Chariot train, Deccan Odyssey and Royal Rajasthan on Wheels.
