Not just train enthusiast will make the distance people who are looking to experience the unique side of luxury are going to spend to experience it, if only to just say that they have.
The construction of the moving hotel is said to be around $13 million which has come from public and private investment. You will be able to travel throughout India on the Maharajas’ Express where others don’t, stop off at the holy city of Varanasi and the Taj Mahal or better still visit the city of Mumbai. The extra destinations on the route are part of the deal when you part with your hard earned money, but the overall package does seem to be worth every penny.
