Business travelers who are making their way across the subcontinent of India have numerous options when it comes time to travel from town to town. Those professionals who would rather stay on the ground won't have to skimp on the quality of their journey, as Indian Railways and the Rajasthan Tourism Development Corporation have announced the launch of a new luxury train line with service to three of the country's most popular states.
The new line is called Royal Rajasthan on Wheels, and is being called "India's most luxurious train." With service beginning in Delhi, ending in Safdarjung, and moving through Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh, the journey is ideal for business travelers who will be spending a lot of time in the subcontinent.
Train travel is an excellent way for professionals to make their way across the country, as it's more leisurely pace allows them plenty of time to complete their work on the road. Investing in an international calling card is another wise decision, as these items provide travelers with a versatile tool that can keep them in touch with the home office for a reasonable price.
At launch, the Royal Rajasthan on Wheels held a full house, with 61 of the 82 travelers enjoying the trip hailing from overseas. One of those passengers was Australian tourist Kent Vodan, who told the Indo-Asian News Service that he was impressed by the train immediately
"So far, the service has been really good and the crew is really hospitable," said Vodan, as quoted by the India Daily News.
The train features 25 coaches and a bevy of luxurious amenities, including an onboard spa, gym, deluxe saloons and two restro-lounges.
