Alternative Asia Railway Holidays

At Regent Holidays we believe that to get under the skin of other countries, travellers should recognise that often the journey matters just as much the destination – especially when that journey travels through epic landscapes and stops at a whole host of intriguing destinations. The vast desert lands, mountain ranges and steppe of Central Asia are dotted with ancient cities and traditional communities that live their lives far from the beaten track, making the central Asian Republics prime contenders for a railway holiday

Follow in the footsteps of the early Silk Road traders, crossing through the rolling steppe and shimmering desert towns of Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan aboard a private train. Or, now that the FGO’s travel restrictions for Iran have been lifted, speak to a Regent Holidays Asia Explorer about uncovering Iran’s spectacularly preserved archaeological citadels, ornate blue-domed mosques and Persian palaces.
