Hi guys,

I'm looking for some help in travelling by train round Turkey. Specifically, I would like to travel from Antalya to Fethiye by train but not sure whether it's feasible or even worthwhile. Does anyone have any insight or recommendations about this journey?

Thanks!

Simple look at a decent map; NO trains at all into Ant. Never have been-chance they come soon also nil. There is however a small and not yet built out light-rail, or TRAMline.
PLUs that in TR train is about last choice for most to use-except then the newly built hi-speed lines to Ankara. Means of choice and far better: quicker, faster, much more frequent, are its famous long-dist buses, that serve major routes like ev 20/30 mins-by various companies, many of whom are still not even on www. Oh dear-what an awful uncertainty for the new-style traveller with all on the fone!
HINT: a simple google will lead answers to your Q in the usual few milli-secs. Much faster as searching for an obscure site like this, make account-post etc.
Also: IF hell-bound on those iron monsters: there is also an excellent site in /en/ from a non-Turk who lives there since many yrs (usually the kind of people who know far better as locals)-trainsof turkey or the like-again dr. google will know. All such trams/lightrail: urbantransit
