The Konkan version of ‘Palace on Wheels’ is all set to embark its journey from Mumbai to Goa. Soon, you can travel in the lap of luxury, on this route experiencing the ultimate way to travel in style.
While, the luxurious train Deccan Odyssey covers various destinations in Maharastra and Karnataka, this is the first exclusive train dedicated to Mumbai to Goa. Union Tourism Minister and local MP, Sripad Naik,chaired a meeting of Goa government’s task force on tourism here. Afterwards, he told reporters that the Union Railway Ministry would be requested to sanction a fast train connecting Mumbai and Goa. The high-end service is expected to attract the cream of Indian and international tourists, but GTDC does not want to make the train completely inaccessible to the middle class. The high end train is expected to be in par of Palace of Wheels, which means that it will be equipped with luxurious cabins, fine-dining car, bar, Rejuvenation spa, gym, lounge, indoor games, newspaper/magazine, off train cultural events & onboard events compels every traveler to enjoy this ride of a lifetime.
Goa is one of the most preferred destination for Mumbaikars. Though, there have been talks about the launch of the seaplane service between the two destination, it would be interesting to know, how many people would be willing to use these services, as they are keen to reach Goa asap. However, just like Palace on Wheels, the new luxurious train will rely on foreign tourists.
