Merhaba herkese!!


Hope someone can help me giving me some good advice ... I´m planning to go in Turkey in October for a 1 week tour. I would like to spend also 1 week in Istanbul but I´m not able to find a lowcost internal flight from Antalya to Istanbul for that period. What about train or bus? I´m looking to find informations in the web but I didn´t find anything usefull till now. There is someone so kind who can help me?


Çok teşekkur ederim.

You can search on www.turkeytravelplanner.com and also on the forum that belongs to that site.


THY has one way tickets (including tax) for 104 YTL and during Ramazan you´ll get 25% discount.

You can obtain train times and costs from this site  https://etcdd.tcdd.gov.tr/tcddrezwebapproot/danismatcddservlet?ulkeid=ENG  and you can buy online too. There is a page where you key in starting point and destination. 



This is one of the main pages of the site  http://tcdd.gov.tr/tcdding/yurtici_ing.htm and you can get to the above page from there.


Istanbul to Antalya, Marmaris and Bodrum http://www.seat61.com/Turkey2.htm#Istanbul%20to%20Antalya  (and almost every other route)


The main bus station, Otogar, is a few stops down the line from the airport for 1.4YTL or a 7YTL taxi ride away.


Have a lovely trip!

There is no train to Antalya or from Antalya. You can go by bus or you can fly there. I checked www.thy.com website and a return ticked was 198 ytl which is a good price.


If you choose to go by bus I suggest either Varan or Ulusoy. Picking a good bus company is critical in Turkia for comfortable bus trips. It can be very painful if you pick an ordinary company. Both have English websites:



October tickets aren´t available yet for sale on their website. I think it will be available in early September. Alternatively give them a call. You can reserve a ticket on the phone and then collect from an office. Or you could wait a week or so and buy directly from their website. I have used the websites of both of these bus companies many times to buy tickets.
