Trains are a slower way of reaching Adana region, the İçanadolu Mavi Tren departs Haydarpaşa station in Istanbul nightly at 11:50PM, arriving in Adana the next evening around 6:40PM. Journey time is just about 19 hours. Ankara is also served by an over-night sleeper named Çukurova Mavi Tren, taking around 12 hours. However, a new high-speed service is beeing built and travel time from the capital Ankara will be greatly reduced in the near future. As for international connections, it is no longer possible to travel here from Syria as the once-weekly train from Aleppo is now halted indefinitely.
