Luxury train travel really is making a comeback. The royal couple of Bhutan, who wed earlier this month, are set to board a train across India to celebrate their honeymoon, according to the Times of India (via the Rich Times).The newlyweds, King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck and Queen Jetsun Pema, are reportedly big fans of India, the king having visited many of the country’s top tourist destinations last year.
According to the Times of India, the country’s railway is going all out for the trip.
A special salon will be added to the train, which will also have AC class coaches for security personnel.
Sources said the special salon – a customised luxurious coach – will have a furnished drawing and dining room along with a bedroom and a fully equipped kitchen. The coach is designed to give a better exterior view. There is a separate room for the King’s close aide.
