Shangri-La Express

Shangri-La Express (China Orient Express)


China has many magnificent wonders to explore, most of which are difficult to reach by road or air, but aboard the China Orient Express you'll experience first hand people, places and culture, each one vastly diverse from the other.

There is only one class cabins in the Shangr-La Express, it's the heritage class. Heritage class sleeping cars on the China Orient Express offer passengers an ideal cozy environment in which to experience the many delights of the Chinese countryside. The cabins/ compartments are twin berth with upper and lower berths. The lower berth converts to daytime sofa seating. The temperature in compartments is centrally controlled. 

However because we use both trains, Shangri-La Express and Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian Express, on the Silk Road journey, we use the Silver and Gold classification. And if passengers travel in Gold Class they will get 2 interconnecting compartments/ cabins on the Shangri-La Express to give them double amount of space than if they have Silver Class.

A wash basin facility is shared between adjoining compartments for the convenience of the guests. And toilet/ wash facilities are available at each end of the sleeping cars/ carriages. There is a separate shower car on the train, it consists of 8 separate shower compartments and dressing rooms. 


The Chinese chefs offer a variety of gastronomic local specialities at lunch and dinner using the finest of local ingredients. Quality wines from around the world are served with both lunch and dinner, along with beer, soft drinks, tea and coffee.  (Special diets and celebratory events can be catered for with prior notice). 



The Bar Car, featured on every departure, offers a relaxed setting to met and chat with your fellow passengers whilst watching the passing countryside. Serving an extensive array of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, the bar stays open until the last person leaves. 

There are books and magazines to help you while away the hours and on board pianist soothes a tired mind with an assortment of classical favorites each evening. 



Attentive, personal service awaits our  guests and as an attendant is assigned to every sleeping car you will be assured the best in care and attention with our staff providing a daily bed make up and turn down service.
