环球之旅:世界十佳火车之旅欢迎你

For most of us, a train journey means a sleepy-eyed commute to work. For trainiacs, they're another notch in the little black book.

But for a lucky few, a rail journey is an expedition through cultures and across lands, providing an experience that's equaled by no other means of transport.

Here are 10 of the best.

对我们大多数来说,坐一次火车便是前往工作地途中的睡眼朦胧。对于火车迷来说那是生命中不可替代的记忆。
不过对于一小部分幸运者,一次火车出行则意味着一次跨越不同文化和地域的探险之旅,这是其他任何交通工具所不能媲美的。
以下就是10大最佳火车之旅:


1. Eastern and Oriental Express

Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore
Eastern and Oriental Express
泰国、马来西亚和新加坡
Champagne, music, velvet couch -- wouldn't you be laughing too?
香槟,音乐,天鹅绒沙发—你难道还不够幸运吗?
Sure, you could fly between Bangkok and Singapore in a couple of hours, but you’d miss this Agatha Christie-like journey with an Oriental twist through the heart of the Malay Peninsular.
的确,你用几小时就能乘飞机往来于曼谷和新加坡,不过这样你将失去一次如同阿加西.克里斯蒂侦探小说般的旅程,乘坐行驶在蜿蜒铁道上的火车,穿梭于马来半岛的核心地带。
Sister train to Europe’s Venice Simplon Orient Express, an open-air observation car allows heady aromas of the Orient to waft onboard. Accompanied by the tinkle of ivory, the Piano Bar is the social hub where tall Singapore Slings garnished with fresh fruit are de rigeur.
同欧洲的威尼斯-辛普伦-东方快车一样,全景式观光车厢充满了浓郁的东方气息。在社交中心钢琴吧里,于优美琴声的伴奏中来一大杯配上鲜果的新加坡司令更是必不可少。
Upper and lower berths and en suite bathrooms complete the picture in three cabin configurations: Pullman, State and Presidential cabins.
列车提供有普通卧铺、豪华套间和总统包间,这些都配有上下铺和浴室。
Boarding: Singapore or Bangkok
乘车地点:新加坡或者曼谷
Cost: Pullman Cabin US$3,070; Presidential Suite US$6,130.
费用:普通卧铺 3070美元;总统套间6130美元

2. Hiram Bingham

Peru
秘鲁
Hacking your way through jungle with a machete is so 1880s.
拿着大刀在热带丛林中劈荆斩棘这完全是19世纪末期的风格。
Hiram Bingham was an American historian credited with bringing the ancient Inca site of Machu Pichu to world attention.
Hiram Bingham 是一位因发现马丘比丘印加遗址而闻名的美国历史学家。
Ascending almost 2,500 meters above sea level to the ancient Peruvian ruins, the train that bears his name is one of the shortest luxury trains in the world. Heavily geared towards gastronomy during the four hours it takes to climb heavenwards through the spectacular Andes mountains, this is the easy way to tackle the Inca Trail.
以他名字命名的列车,可以说是全球最短最奢华的列车,它连接着海拔2500米的古秘鲁遗址。在4小时攀越高耸的安第斯山脉之行中,饱食美酒佳肴,绝对没有比这更容易征服印加古道的方法了。
Don’t forget to take your party frock for the cocktail party on the return evening journey.
别忘了带上你派对礼服,去参加夜间回程路上的鸡尾酒会。
Boarding: Poroy or Machu Pichu
乘车地:Poroy或者马丘比丘
Cost: US$588 round-trip.
费用:往返588美元

3. Southern Spirit
Australia
澳大利亚
Possibly the best way to see southern Australia.
可能是最佳游览南澳的方法
With just a handful of journeys scheduled each summer, The Southern Spirit traverses four states through southeastern Australia’s outback.
穿越澳洲东南腹地的Southern Spirit 列车,每年夏天仅有少量车次投入运行。
More a rail cruise than a point-to-point journey, daily whistle-stop tours set the schedule, allowing passengers to explore regional Australia. Highlights include Byron Bay, the Hunter Valley vineyards along with free-range Taronga Western Plains Zoo at Dubbo.
它并非传统的点对点的旅行,而更像是巡航于铁轨上的船只,每日停驻于不同小站,让游客们尽览澳洲各色风景。其中最有特色的站点包括Bryon Bay、Hunter Valley 葡萄园以及位于 Dubbo 的 Taronga Western Plains 野生动物园。
Luxuriously styled, guests need only decide the level of elegance required, in either Gold or Platinum Class cabins. Private carriages also available for charter.
车厢风格豪华,有黄金套舱和白金套舱供乘客选择,同时也提供私人车厢的租赁。
Boarding: Adelaide or Brisbane
乘车地点:阿德莱德或布里斯班
Cost: Depends on route, but an example: US$4,455 for Gold Class Adelaide-Brisbane.
费用:视距离而定。如:阿德莱德到布里斯班的黄金套舱为4455美元

4. Venice Simplon Orient-Express
威尼斯至辛普朗的东方快车
Europe
欧洲
Why read Agatha Christie when you can live it?
与其阅读阿加西.克里斯蒂的小说不如亲身体验一把?
Wood burning stoves and etched glass panels onboard evoke a time of Parisian art deco sophistication from the Roaring 1920s.
车厢中的燃木炉火和透光镶嵌玻璃,精致无比,充满了上世界20年代的巴黎装饰风格。
No shrinking violet, once author Agatha Christie’s detective Hercule Poirot stepped aboard through her pages, the Orient Express’ fame was assured. Shared bathroom facilities take the gloss off an otherwise glamorous train whose inaugural journey deposited travelers in what was once Europe’s wealthiest city, known then as Constantinople.
当阿加西.克里斯蒂笔下的大侦探波罗登上列车的时候,便奠定了东方快车的名气。可惜传统的公共浴室让这列极富盛名的列车失了些色彩。列车的起点位于曾今欧洲最富裕的城市伊斯坦布尔。
Today, Istanbul is one of many destinations on varied elegant itineraries throughout Europe.
如今,伊斯坦布尔是众多欧洲雅致旅行路线的终点地。
Boarding: Various cities throughout Europe
乘车地点:欧洲的众多城市
Cost: Varies. Between US$1,230 (one night, Paris-London) and US$12,070 (five nights, Paris–Istanbul).
费用:不定。1230美元(一晚,巴黎至伦敦)至12070美元(5晚,巴黎到伊斯坦布尔)

5. Indian Pacific
印度洋至大西洋之旅
Australia
澳大利亚
Priceless views for discounted prices.
通过折扣价买到无价的风景
From coast to coast across some of Australia’s most remote and uninhabited countryside, the Indian Pacific is named after the two oceans bookending the journey.
顾名思义,这趟列车往来于澳洲的东西两岸,穿梭于杳无人迹的偏远乡村。
One of the few great train journeys catering to all budgets, comfort level varies according to the depth of your pockets, from airline-type seats (though with significantly more leg and shoulder room) through to sumptuous Gold cabins. Kangaroo-spotting trackside at dawn and dusk followed by blazing burnt orange sunsets keep passengers entertained over almost 4,500 kilometers of virtually non-stop travel.
这是少数能够照顾不同消费层次旅客的列车,舒适的程度取决于你愿意出多少,从航空座椅(更宽敞舒适)到豪华的黄金套间,由你选择。每当黄昏与黎明,在绚丽的橘色阳光中,你能看到铁道旁跳跃的袋鼠,此等美景将伴随你走完近4500公里几乎不停歇的旅程。

Canada
加拿大
Awesome views and polite wildlife.
极致的美景与优雅的野生动物
With such civilized amenities as free onboard Wi-Fi, VIARail knows how to entertain its customers when they tire of the dramatic landscape outside.
VIARail为你提供了免费无线Wi-Fi接入服务,以避免你在看腻窗外丰富美景后无事可做。
Over the Rocky Mountains, down onto the prairies and into water sodden lakes district over four days, The Canadian offers wild landscapes and wildlife aplenty. Keep an eye out through double glazed windows for bears and beavers trackside.
列车将攀越落基山脉,驶过大草原,进入布满湖泊的区域。在四天的行程中,无数的原始风光和野生动物将展现在你眼前。对了,别忘了找找铁道旁可能出现的北极熊和海狸。
Economy Seating and Sleeper Touring Berths or Cabins all have shared shower facilities, with Sleeper Cabins the only option if you don’t want to share a toilet too.
经济座、卧铺、包厢都设有公共淋浴设备。如果你不愿意使用公共厕所,那么你只能选择卧铺包厢了。
Boarding: Vancouver or Toronto.
乘车地点:温哥华或多伦多
Cost: Economy Seating US$830; Sleeper Berth US$1,435; Sleeper Cabin US$2,160.

7. Trans-Siberian Railway
西伯利亚铁路之旅
Russia
俄罗斯
Mucky, rusty and unforgettable.
脏乱差的环境,让人永生难忘
The Big Kahuna of rail journeys for the sheer scale of distance traveled, it’s possible to do the entire route -- some 9,000 kilometers -- between the Pacific Ocean and St. Petersburg in around 10 days.
这应该算得上是行驶距离最长的火车之旅了,从太平洋西岸到圣彼得堡的全部旅程最快的话,可能在大约10天里走完。
Though why would you rush it when journeying through far-flung Russia? Winter travelers would do well to watch the original "Doctor Zhivago" movie (with Omar Sharif) before departure, as this service travels through much of the majestic landscape depicted in the movie. Disembark for a few days to explore the Russian Arctic, the Silk Road or Moscow.
在广袤的俄罗斯大地上你何必匆匆赶路?在冬季去旅行的人最好先看看原版的《日瓦戈医生》(Omar Sharif 主演)这部电影,因为火车将经过很多影片中出现过的宏伟景色。途中可以下车玩玩,去观赏极地风光、丝绸之路以及首都莫斯科。
This journey is all about the experience rather than the elegance, so leave the dinner suit at home.
这是一趟无关雅致、唯有美景的旅程,所以还是把你的晚礼服留在家中吧。
Boarding: Moscow or Vladivostok.
乘车地点:莫斯科或者海参崴
Cost: 1st Class two-berth US$1720; 2nd Class US$875; 3rd Class US$405
费用:头等 双人铺位 1720美元;二等 875美元 ;三等 405美元

8. Glacier Express
冰川之旅
Switzerland
瑞士
The only 'express' journey you'll wish lasted forever.
唯一一趟你希望一直坐下去的特快列车
Somewhat mis-named given that it takes up to eight hours to travel 270 kilometers, it’s rather convenient that the Glacier Express takes so long, as the Alpine scenery is breathtaking.
不要被“冰河特快”的名称所欺骗,这趟仅270公里的旅程,却要耗时8个小时。不过因为有窗外的阿尔卑斯山的景色,这样反倒也挺好。
Some 291 bridges are slung across gorges and valleys between towering mountains. Throw in almost 100 tunnels and you’ve got a jaw dropping journey between some of Switzerland’s uber luxe health resorts.
一路上要经过291座架设在峰谷间的桥梁,穿过近100条隧道。还会经过一些奢华到让你无法想象的瑞士疗养胜地。
Ascending a heady 2,033 meters above sea level, the peak of the mighty Matterhorn competes with other such mammoth mountains that rise over 4,000 meters. Cinderella-type glass roofed carriages help prevent neck strain from all that landscape ogling.
当列车爬到2033米的海拔时,你能看到著名的马特洪峰以及其他一些海拔超过4000米的山峰。通过灰姑娘式的玻璃顶棚观赏外面美景,能避免你颈部疲劳。
Boarding: Zermatt or St Moritz (Switzerland).
乘车地点:策马特或圣摩里兹
Cost: First Class US$230; Second Class US$140.
费用:一等座230美元 二等座 140美元

9. Maharajas' Express
India
印度
When India goes extravagant, it goes super extravagant.
Hailed as the most luxurious train in all of India, which admittedly is coming from a low base, the Maharajas' Express has all the charm of an opulent Indian palace on wheels.
印度不奢华则已,一旦奢华便是极致。
Maharajas' Express 作为印度最豪华的列车,并非来自皇室,但气派的就像一座驶在铁轨上的宫殿。
Classical Indian rail itineraries take travelers deep into India’s mystique, allowing one to retreat to private rail opulence when overwhelmed by India’s in-your-face pace.
古典的印度列车将带你领略印度的神秘之处,同时让游人感受到印度人那种不可理喻的安详。
Onboard LCD TV’s and Wi-Fi clash rather starkly (pleasingly, for technophobes) with the alluring beauty of historic architecture like the Taj Mahal beyond the train.
在窗外诸如泰姬陵这样的古迹面前,车厢内的LCD液晶电视和wifi无线接入看上去很是有点不协调。
Boarding: Delhi.
乘车地点:德里
Cost: Seven-night Classic India Tour from US$6,265 for Deluxe Cabin; US$17,500 for Presidential Suite.
费用:七晚的经典印度之旅,豪华包间:6265美元,总统包间:17500美元

10. Pride of Africa
Africa
非洲
The world's most deluxe safari.
世界上最奢华的狩猎之旅
Spacious suites (rather than cabins) with their own stocked bar fridge define the accommodation aboard Rovos Rail’s Pride of Africa service.
Rovos Rail的Pride of Africa 提供了宽敞的套房(而不仅仅是包厢),房中还设有独立的冷冻酒柜。

Double beds and modern en suite bathrooms complete with hair dryers ensure grooming standards don’t slip while slipping through some of Africa’s wild landscapes. It’s all rather glamorous in an understated manner for just 72 guests.
双人床、现代化浴室套间外加电吹风,这些设施构成了列车的极致奢华,当列车驶过非洲原野时,你可别滑倒了。此外魅力非凡的Pride of Africa 每次仅低调的接待72名乘客。

Windows that open send rail buffs into delirium on the odd occasion when a steam locomotive takes the lead position. For the time-rich with deep pockets, the 14-day Dar Es Salaam to Cape Town service is the ultimate African adventure.
当车透过打开的车窗,看到一辆古怪的蒸汽机车时,一定会让火车迷们兴奋的发狂。如果时间金钱都不差的话,14天的达累斯萨拉姆到开普敦的旅程,或许是你非洲之旅的终极选择。

Boarding: Cape Town (South Africa) or Dar Es Salaam (Tanzania).
乘车地点:开普敦(南非)或达累斯萨拉姆(坦桑尼亚)

Cost: Pullman Suite US$8,900; Royal Suite US$15,950.
成本:普通套房 8900美元;皇家套房 15950美元
