How to Reach

By air

Turkish Airlines offers daily domestic flights from Istanbul (IST) and Ankara to Diyarbakir (DIY).

By train

There are trains three times a week from Istanbul (Guney Express) via Ankara and a number of other cities on the way, including Kayseri, Sivas, and Malatya among others. There is also another daily train from Ankara (4 Eylul Mavi Treni), which takes the same route with Guney Express. On its way back to Istanbul, Guney Express, which comes from Kurtalan and Batman about 2 hours further east from Diyarbakir, departs from Diyarbakir on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays around noon. Trains to Istanbul get really overcrowded during early August because of huge numbers of seasonal workers taking the train to get to hazelnut orchards around Adapazari and Eastern Marmara on the way (short of two hours from Istanbu-the last stop of the trains), and it is impossible to find a ticket during that season without booking/buying the ticket in advance. Even if you can find a ticket, the ride is very uncomfortable, and because of the huge numbers of passengers getting off the train in almost each stop-even if it is in the middle of nowhere, where normally no one ever gets on or off-to replenish their water from station fountains, trains are extremely delayed, and it takes almost two full days to get to Istanbul. Avoid if you are not deadly on budget.
