The Assam Safari Express is very much inspired by the famous Palace on Wheels or the Maharaja Express, and will be a full-fledged tour of Assam with affordable luxury.

"Though it will be a semi-luxury train, our team is working to bring down the cost as much as possible before going into aggressive marketing for the package within the country, as well as through our embassies to attract foreign tourists to Assam. The idea is to showcase the beautiful Assam with an irresistible package clubbing comfort and adventure," Debashish Chandra, Group General Manager, IRCTC, East Zone told the Assam Tribune.
