There are only sleeper cars, but no couchettes in this train. If you traveling foursome, you need to get two compartments.

There’s no chance of watching view from train, since it runs during night.

Both train stations are at the heart of cities. Both cities have wide variety of accommodation and a lot of places to see.

  1. I would also suggest the routes serving Adana from Ankara and the (former? I hope it runs again!) one from Haydarpasa too: the section down from Ülükisla to Yenice especially is stupendous!
