Save Wild Tigers feature in the Financial Times!

FT Reports -

"The journey is remarkable, beginning with a night at one of the world’s most famous hotels – Raffles in Singapore – before boarding the elegant Eastern & Oriental Express and travelling through the Malaysian countryside. Dinner that evening will be a sparkling gala event at the Majestic Hotel in Kuala Lumpur, combined with a charity auction. In Penang the following day, guests will be able to attend a private view of a specially curated tiger-art exhibition. While continuing on through Thailand, tiger conservationists aboard the train will share their knowledge of these magnificent animals – more of which are now in captivity than in the wild – and explain what is being done to preserve and protect the tiger’s wild habitats and prevent their extinction. An opportunity to see these jungle stomping grounds with an expert guide is on offer, as too are excursions such as a cruise along the River Kwai and a visit to the Thailand-Burma Railway Centre and the Don Rak War cemetery."
