Aboard the Train to Your Dream Destination

Explore Europe by land to better enjoy the sights.

Have you ever felt like you want to drop everything and get away from the busy life and responsibilities for a while? To take a breath of fresh air instead of the dusty city air and relax outside of the stressful city environment? That’s the time when you know you need to take a break and focus on yourself. However, as you choose a destination to travel to you usually don't give too much thought into choosing the best way to travel as  long as you get there, but it might be worth a second thought. Sometimes, it’s not just the destination that you should look forward to. The journey to that destination is also part of the adventure.

When traipsing around Europe, most travellers tend to take the plane as the fastest way to get to most places. Especially as it can sometimes be the cheapest as well. However, why not do something different and take the train for a change? Travel operator Klook recently partnered with Rail Europe and has prepared some cool itineraries for travelling with train to get in the most beautiful of sights. Travelling via train also offers some perks that you might not get aboard other modes of transportation, making it the perfect example of the saying "Getting there is half the fun."

3. Save More Money

Planes can be convenient as it’s usually the fastest way to your destination but it could get really pricey especially during peak seasons. Trains commonly have many types of promotions especially during holiday season so do be on a look out for them. You can also book your ticket in advance to get the cheaper Early-Bird rates.

Most train stations are located in the heart of the city, making it convenient for travelers to find taxis or busses. Hotels are also usually available nearby stations. As such, travellers could find them in walking distance or just a short drive away, saving on transportation money.

If you are a fan of culture, you can take trains that stop in London, Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam. In London you can visit the iconic The National Gallery while in Paris you can explore ancient monuments such as the Grand Palais. Brussels in Belgium has beautiful landmarks like the Atomium. You can also visit Vincent Van Gogh’s creations at the Van Gogh Museum located in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
