I will be traveling to Ashgabat in May/June and would like to travel by train to Türkmenabat (near the Uzbek border).
Would I be able to obtain a train ticket the day before my travel date? Or do I have to get the ticket in advance? What would the price be for such a ticket?
Generally speaking, it's fine to get the train ticket on the day of travel. But assuming you're on a transit visa, you would be better safe than sorry getting it in advance.
