The 12 Most Scenic Train Trips In The World [Infographic]

The 12 Most Scenic Train Trips In The World [Infographic]

Travelling by train is one of the simplest ways to get around, and it can also be the most photogenic. These 12 routes from around the world are so visually striking you’ll be glued to your railroad car’s window for the entire trip.

This graphic from Pettitt’s travel agency offers a glimpse of what you’ll see on each of the 12 rail journeys. There’s Scotland’s Jacobite steam train used as the Hogwarts Express in the Harry Potter films. The Trans-Siberian Railway runs over 9,250km from Russia, through Mongolia, to the Eastern edges of China. And, of course, Japan’s Tokaido Shinkansen bullet train from Tokyo to Kyoto, which I can attest to being pretty spectacular.

The graphic shares a description of each trip, the distance travelled, the cost per ride and a signature meal that each train offers (if any). Check it out below.
