China - Itineraries
Beijing to Lhasa by TrainWith the completion of the new high altitude railway into Tibet, Lhasa is accessible by a luxurious train journey across China. Starting in Beijing, site of the 2008 Olympic Games and home of Tiananmen Square, The Great Wall of China, and some of the finest cuisine in the world, this journey spans the length of the Middle Kingdom and finishes high in the Himalayas. While service began on the line in 2006 with a fleet of new, high-tech trains, a number of luxury trains, run by the Kempinski hotel group, now ply the rails. Decorated in a style befitting a five-star hotel the trains carry a select group of 96 passengers. Each has 12 passenger cars, 2 dining cars and a sightseeing car. The 108 square-foot suites each include a double bed, a living room and a bathroom.

Storied East Experience
Itinerary - Hongkong and MacauHong Kong is one of the most exciting cities in the world, at times even outpacing New York, Tokyo and London. Efficiency is the key in "Asia’s World City," and you see this in practice everywhere, from the elevator monitors that usher queued office workers to arriving lifts, to the ultra-clean Mass Transit Railway (MTR) subway. However, to enjoy Hong Kong’s real charm lies in quiet, residential alleyways, leisurely afternoon tea breaks at Hong Kong-style diners, or chachantangs, or a sunset stroll along Victoria Harbour’s waterfront to admire the architecture, which includes masterpieces by I.M. Pei (Bank of China Building) and Sir Norman Foster (HSBC Building).
