Famed for its majestic journeys and exemplary service, India’s Deccan Odyssey was named Asia’s Leading Luxury Train for the fifth time at the World Travel Awards in Hong Kong last week.

With six routes to choose among, this is the only luxury train in India that reaches all the major tourist destinations – Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka, Rajasthan, Andhra Pradesh, Goa and Delhi.

“The Deccan Odyssey has surpassed the definition of luxury with its unparalleled service and stunning design that not only offers unimaginable comfort but also a rare window to tour India,” said Arup Sen, director of special projects at Cox & Kings.
