China Plans Luxury Train Ride To Tibet
China already has a train line to the Tibetan capital of Lhasa but now they are planning to create, according to the AFP, "the most luxurious train in the world." The new train will have 12 passenger cars, two dining cars and a sightseeing car. The passenger cars will have four small suites (108 square feet) decorated like a five-star hotel with a double bed, living room and bathroom area. The five-day journey from Beijing will cost over $5,000 and will leave every eight days. The new luxury trains will start running September 1.
