Good Day as  I rise early this morning for a deliciously home-cooked style Chinese Breakfast here inside Oriental Express the Deluxe Express Train travelling on the Silk Road in China on Day 3 :

In the midst of our pretty yummy Breakfast, we meet Mr Li Liang Yi – General Manager of China Express Travel Service (or China Express Holidays Singapore), who’s in-charged of the Silk Road Express Train which opened in 1993.

Mr Li Liang Yi has come to welcome us aboard the Oriental Express Train on our Mysterious Silk Road Tour……….

Well-known to China’s Tourism World & in Southeast Asia, Mr Li Liang Yi dedicated all his efforts to develop the Chartered Train Tour for more than 10 years – bringing several thousands visitors to the Silk Road each year!!

For his Professional Services & exciting Lecture named “Chinese Culture & Tour”, Mr Li Liang Yi gained the name “King of The Silk Road” :

I’m now back inside our Train Cabin which is the 1st Cabin on Carriage 6 of the Oriental Express the Deluxe Express Train………….Well, last night’s sleep wasn’t a very pleasant one as the moving Train was pretty noisy & sometimes jerking though the Bed’s pretty comfortable!!

Guess it’s just a matter of getting used to it as our Silk Road Trip continues on…………Afterall it was a real good experience & the first ever for Me who’s always been fascinated with Trains & travelling in Trains heheh!!

And since arriving last night, I’ve really liked sitting on the Foldable Seat here at the Corridor outside our Cabin enjoying the on-going outside sceneries as our Train travels along the Silk Road………….& of course it was total darkness last night as we departed Xi’an, China!!

Here’s the Common Toilet with a small washing Basin (with only COLD water!!) in our Carriage 6 next to our Cabin – not quite what we’d expected but it’s “managable” & good enough…………

And there’s limited Gallons of COLD Water available in the entire Train (cos it’s to be refilled at Train Station stops!!), so sometimes there’s no Water flushed out at all after using the Toilet ahahah!!
