India's 'Palace on Wheels'

India's 'Palace on Wheels'

Exotic Holidays is currently emphasising the appeal to a Palace on Wheels, known as the pioneer of luxury train travel in India.

Rahul Sharma says Palace on Wheels allows clients to travel with ‘all the elegance of a bygone era as the Maharajas of India once did.’

He says the journey offers opulence and comfort in luxurious cabins, with butler service.

‘Yet unlike the days of yore, the elegance and style of yesteryears comes with state of the art amenities to ensure premium luxury that even the maharajas would have envied,’ Sharma adds.

The original purpose of the train was to provide a cultural insight into India through a classic rail travel experience, as it used to be in the past.

The train chugs out of Safdarjung Railway Station, New Delhi, on a week-long run through Rajasthan, covering Jaipur, Sawai Madhopur, Chittorgarh, Udaipur, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Bharatpur and also Agra. It moves by night and arrives each morning at a new destination where a new experience awaits its passengers. This heritage experience concludes on the eighth day at New Delhi.
