The future of tourism includes ultra-health-conscious hotels, a surge in river cruises, abundant choices for medical trips—and sky nannies.

Vintage Train Trips

3 of 8

The German railroad Deutsche Bahn believes in the allure of vintage trains, and the Trans Europ Express train Rheingold, a powerful electric engine and accompanying rolling stock from the 1960s, is its highlight. The sleek train, with deluxe dining car and glass-domed observation car, travels about Europe like a gypsy, passing through villages and countryside by day and stopping in cosmopolitan cities overnight, where passengers repair to deluxe hotels until the whistle blows the next morning. Train travel is also being smiled on again in America; President Obama included $8 billion for high-speed rail in his stimulus package, to be spent in the next two years.
