Belmond Launches First 'Rolling Canvas' Onboard Eastern & Oriental Express

Belmond has introduced a new concept in luxury rail travel, with the unveiling of two new carriages of the Eastern & Oriental Express in Asia. The exterior of the two carriages will showcase a ‘rolling canvas’ by Singapore-based street artist Rajesh Kumar, who will remain on the train until April 28, 2017.

Emerging artist Rajesh Kumar, who has previously worked at Singapore’s acclaimed Sundaram Tagore Gallery, will create a one-of-a-kind artwork, The Koi Pond, which depicts the joy of travel, movement, and the coming together of friends and family.

Giving new meaning to ‘art in motion’, Belmond has also worked with creative experts to curate a full sensory experience, which includes collaborating with mixology consultancy Cocktail Professor, on an innovative new cocktail menu, and world-class DJ and music producer Mr Has for a contemporary soundscape.

The new cocktail menu features a combination of modern techniques with classic cocktail etiquette and imaginative presentation. Signature concoctions include Malay Jungle, using fresh natural botanicals for a green, fresh and healthy drink.

The Eastern & Oriental Express travels between Singapore and Bangkok on two and three-night journeys from January to April, and September to December, carrying up to 82 passengers in all en-suite cabins.
