Theres no two questions about it the Orient Express is the worlds most famous train. Its featured in movies, TV shows and countless novels. Sadly, the original train ceased operations in 2009, citing rising costs and stiff competition from high speed trains. Fortunately for train lovers, hotel chain Belmond bought the rights to the train and now runs a number of luxury rail services on various routes, including the original, iconic Paris Istanbul line.
