Loved the bit about the border crossing, would have loved to see the border guard’s little smile as you talked about your trip.

Thanks for a great read! Looking forward to visiting Iran this fall.

I do not know the current price for the train ticket, but in 2011 the cost was around $75/person with a sleeper car. Good luck!

We met several people on our train trip who were on their way to Embassies and UNHCR to apply for refugee status. I hope that your train journey goes smoothly and that your application for refugee status goes well.

I am Iranian,I am going to take the train to turky , I want to apply for refugee status, Its very hard for religious minorities to live here! I dont think my trip will be as fun as yours, but I hope it will be safe.
The way you told your story was fascinating, I feel way more optimistic about my trip next friday.
Thanks alot

Traveling as a couple in Iran was extremely easy and I found that people approached the two of us quite a bit, so lots of engagement. As for traveling on the train as a woman I felt completely safe. Dan and I were together for most of the time on the train, but I never felt uncomfortable anywhere. In fact, I found that the Iranian women kind of “adopted” me and watched out to make sure that I was doing the right thing at immigration control, etc. The sleeper cabins have locks on the door so you don’t have to worry about people coming in at night unexpectedly. Hope you have a wonderful journey!!

Thank you very much for this very informative and lovely written post. I am thinking of going to Iran this year and now I am definitely thinking of going one direction via Turkey with the train.

Could you tell me how it is for a couple to travel together there, and as a woman how was it to travel in the train? Did you feel safe to do so?

Thank you very much for this story!
