Make Tracks on a Luxury Train Trip in 2023

Ah, the romance of train travel ... even commuters feel it. There’s something oh so Alfred Hitchcock, Agatha Christie and Harry Potter about chugging down a track on the way to some wonderful — perhaps even mysterious — destination, your bag neatly tucked above you, a book in your lap, your journey ahead. The scenery outside passes by like a film in fast motion. The seats (comfortable on most global trains, even in second class) feel like super-plush movie theater lounge chairs. Each train car, like a narrow living room, boasts its own mood depending on fellow travelers and the ministrations of attentive staff.

However, that number includes all businesses, and we know smaller businesses travel at a more robust level. Industry trackers tend to focus on large companies, as they can easily gain statistics from their movements. But, in fact, small- to medium-sized businesses, which comprise the majority of Global Traveler’s readership, represent the largest-growing segment of business travel.

Nipa Thai Review

While London’s dining scene never fails to interest all who visit, moments of culinary glory aren’t as easy to come by as they once were, particularly in a post-COVID-19 era of tightened budgets, recovering supply lines and staff shortages.
