    The Experience!

    Travelling by train can be incredibly scenic. You can see cities, mountains, and rivers from the seat of a train. Train travel is an all-around better, more fulfilling experience than travelling by air or road. Long train journeys give you time for reflection and meditation. Train journeys leave you feeling relaxed and raring to go!

    Different Destinations

    You get to explore even the smaller, less known destinations by train. The rail network in Türkiye allows you to travel to smaller cities and travel off the beaten track.

    Old School Charm

    There’s just something very quaint, old-school, and romantic about travelling by train, no matter where you’re coming from or going to.

    Freedom and Flexibility

    With no take off, landing or seat-belt signs, you're not stuck in your seat for endless amounts of time. You can move about the train as frequently as you wish. Since someone else is doing the driving, you're free to eat, drink, nap and get up to stretch your legs whenever you like.


    Save money – Taking the train is a cost-effective way of travelling. The cost of train travel on the Turkish Train Network is especially good value!


    If you take the train, you’ll lower your CO2 emissions by half compared to the plane. So if you worry about the climate impact of your trip, know that train travel is much greener than flying – or driving, for that matter. Plus, you don’t need extra transport to the city centre as you’ll arrive at the heart of the city.
