Jonathan Phang is on an adventure of a lifetime, as he travels on some of the world's most luxurious locomotives. Along the journey, he samples amazing cuisine and visits some of the most beautiful sites. From Scotland to Canada, and Australia to Peru, he's never short of trying out something new.

Presented by cookery writer and style connoisseur Jonathan Phang, this opulent series follows Jonathan as he boards some of the world's most iconic trains, including the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express and the Eastern & Oriental Express, for a series of culinary adventures.

In Singapore Jonathan meets executive chef Christopher Christie who is in charge of 30 restaurants at the 8billion dollar ‘wonder of the world’ that is the Marina Bay Sands. He takes on a chilli crab challenge and cooks with young British chef Ryan Clift who is making a name for himself with his molecular approach to gourmet cuisine at the award-winning Tippling Club. He then boards the Eastern and Oriental train from the world famous Raffles Hotel, and travels through the night to Penang in Malaysia.
