Kempinski Managing New Chinese Luxury Trains

April 16, 2007 By: Camie Foster Travel Agent

Expect buzz this spring on Tangula International's new upscale trains

Beginning next spring, China-bound travelers will be able to ride the rails on upscale multiple-day trips that combine transportation with sightseeing. Kempinski Hotels has been tapped by Tangula International to manage journeys on its two routes, Beijing-Lhasa and Beijing-Lijiang. These new journeys are set to be unveiled in May in the U.S., China and Europe; bookings will be taken thereafter. Lijiang, China

Each journey takes five days and four nights outbound from Beijing, and four days
and three nights on the return. Each day, travelers will be able to disembark
for excursions.

The route between Beijing and
Lhasa traverses the Tibetan plateau, while that
between Beijing
and Lijiang crosses the scenic landscapes of Guangxi and Yun-nan provinces.
Both encompass vast plateaus, desert plains and grasslands.

Each train will have 48 suites, accommodating up to 96
passengers. Each suite will be fitted with an entertainment system with music,
TV and Internet, and will have a private bathroom with shower. Butler
service will be available throughout, and a doctor will be on hand for the
ascent to Lhasa.

These trips will provide travelers with new access to
landscapes and cultural traditions, says Josh Brookhart, co-founder and CEO of
Tangula International.
