Exploring India on Exotic Rail Journeys

The people of India still remember the breakthrough brought out by The Palace on Wheels in the rail travel industry in 1982. The launch of The Palace on Wheels initiated a huge influx of travellers booking tickets on flights bound for India. Much to the benefit and convenience of the tourists, several new exotic train travel options have mushroomed over the years. The Royal Rajasthan of Wheels followed suit of The Palace on Wheels and today, both the regal trains stand as epitome of luxury tourism in north India covering principal cities of Delhi- Jaipur – Agra. Furnished with world-class amenities of fine dining restaurants, lounges and comfort rich sleeping coaches, both the rail services have been able to deliver services par excellence. Equipped with gyms, spa rooms, beauty parlours, mailboxes and much more, the trains spell luxury in each and every corner of it.

The exotic rail journeys may start with The Palace on Wheels in the north but it definitely ends with The Golden Chariot in the south and The Deccan Odyssey in the middle. Tourists widely book tickets on flights landing in India to board these magnificent new entries. While the luxurious coaches of The Deccan Odyssey and The Maharaja Express take you to destinations of Mumbai, Aurangabad and Goa meandering through principal sites of historical and cultural significance. The glorious Golden Chariot focuses on the southern parts of India, snaking through Karnataka, Mysore and Bangalore. Countless foreign tourists book tickets for this train and it shows on the itineraries of most travellers booking tickets on flights arriving in India.
