The latest train trips give you plenty of reasons to get on board. India's Deccan Odyssey (800/824-6342; www.deccan-odyssey-india.com; from $350 a night per person) comes with every amenity imaginable—including a spa car. Now there's no excuse for missing your daily yoga workout or weekly massage, even while traveling through Maharashtra and Goa. • The route taken by the Ghan (800/423-2880; www.gsr.com.au/ghan; sleepers with private bath from $1,253 per person, including meals), named for the Afghan camel handlers who once roamed Australia, now reaches all the way from Adelaide to Darwin. • Deutsche Bahn's NachtZug (888/382-7245; www.raileurope.com; doubles from $222 per person) from Berlin to Paris has a sophisticated suspension system (no more bumps in the night). • Chile's restored 19th-century Tren del Vino (56-72/714-580; www.trendelvinochile.cl; $40 per person round-trip), will make a daily run through the country's Colchagua Valley during the annual harvest festival in March, stopping for museum visits and, of course, cellar tours.
