The Orient Silk Road Express private train offers you the greatest possible comfort for travelling along the route of the legendary Silk Road. Some of the train's wagons, including several sleeping cars and a restaurant car, were completely refurbished in 2013. The restaurant car offers a fine selection of international and local dishes and remains open with bar service into the evening. The Orient Silk Road Express is air conditioned while the train is moving and offers three different categories of sleeping compartments.
The Ali Baba category has nine compartments per sleeping car, each compartment providing sleeping space for two guests in two lower berths (70 x 190 cm). There is a small table beneath the window. Combined washing room / lavatory compartments are located at both ends of each car.
The Aladdin category has eight compartments for two guests with two lower berths (70 x 190 cm). Combined washing room / lavatory compartments are located at both ends of each car. There is a small table beneath the window. Additionally, a shower is located at one end of each car and guests receive a bathing robe and shower utilities.
The premier category is the Kalif. This category is equipped with two beds, one of which measures 110 x 187cm, providing enough space for two people if required. Furthermore, the compartment offers a cosy seating bench, a table and a wardrobe. The compartment's exclusive en suite bathroom does not only contain a washing basin, lavatory and shower with curtain but also storage space for your personal belongings. Each car in the Kalif category has only six compartments. A total of 12 guests at most share the whole of the carriage.
In all categories there are power outlets for 110 / 220 volts and smoker's corners at one end of each car.
