Continuing my feature on travel trends for the year ahead, today it’s: PERSIA
There’s something terribly old-fashioned and romantic about a classic rail journey. Factor in undiscovered ancient lands, windswept landscapes and historical landmarks and you’ll experience a truly epic trip – one in which the journey is just as fantastic as the destination. Book your passage on the Wexas’ Jewels of Persia itinerary, and you’ll have the chance of doing just that. Travelling from the banks of the Danube to the shores of the Bosphorus, this unique journey on board the luxurious Danube Express takes in destinations that are rarely experienced by the Western visitor. Taking you through Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Turkey, before entering Persia, this is the first and only private European train to be allowed to enter Iran. The 15-day voyage is just the ticket to find your inner pioneering spirit (www.wexas.com).
