11 Alternatives To The Orient Express

If there’s one thing we learn from Agatha Christie about travel on the Orient Express, it’s that you risk being brutally murdered in your bed. The Kenneth Branagh version of Murder On The Orient Express hits the big screen this week and promises to be an epic whodunit. But Hollywood’s finest, including Branagh, Johnny Depp and Judy Dench will have to share the limelight with another star character, The Orient Express itself.

Where? At the start […]

Fortunately, these igloos are transparent, the igloos offer visitors the opportunity to gaze at the surrounding sky scrapers lit up like fairy lights, (or ogle the hottie in the next-door igloo, whichever floats your boat).
