How to travel in Iran by train?

Iran is well connected by a great railway system; one of the best in the region. There is everything from normal bus-like trains to those with private cabins and bunk beds. I would pick the train in 3 conditions:

  1. long distance
  2. budget
  3. Traveling with friends

Trains can be cheaper than VIP buses but having the option of a private cabin and bed makes it a perfect choice for night travel. If you are women traveling with another female friend or alone then you should definitely request a seat in an only female cabin. Trains can also be a great way to socialize with the locals and enjoy the scenery.

Mashhad and Shiraz are great destination to travel with train. Both offer 5 star trains like Fadak and tickets from Tehran to Shiraz cost around 150,000 Tomans or 34€. There are also other trains such as Qazal that come in cabins of 4 or the really cheap ones with cabins of 6. Apart from the cheapest option, most night trains offer a warm dinner and breakfast. A restaurant car is also available in all of them.

To book your tickets in advance you can use either or a local agency.
