TCDD Turkish State Railway: Traveling by Sleeper Train in Turkey

TCDD Turkish State Railway: Traveling by Sleeper Train in Turkey

When I decided to travel to Turkey (now recognized as Türkiye) for the winter, my initial plan was to get on the sleeper train in Turkey with the famous Dogu Express that takes passengers from Ankara to Kars on a 24-hour journey during the winter wonderland. However, it turns out that the route got so popular that when I tried to book it, the Dogu Express tickets were all sold out.

Although it wasn’t my first experience traveling with a sleeper train since I got a chance to get on the overnight train in Thailand and Vietnam, it was my first time traveling with an inter-city train in Turkey.

I know Turkey has decent sleeper cars in some TCDD trains, according to some friends who took it years ago from Ankara to Izmir. So this time, I decided to travel by sleeper train in Turkey but since I didn’t get to book Dogu Express, I ended up booking one for the Istanbul-Ankara route instead.

Previously, I shared my two cents about traveling by bus in Turkey. In this post, I’m going to share my story of traveling by sleeper train in Turkey, including some tips for booking the train ticket, the facilities in the cabin, and also a review of my overall experience of taking a sleeper train with Ankara Express from Istanbul to Ankara and my take on whether it’s better to travel by train or bus if you’re planning to travel between the cities.
