Over the past couple of years, Kotor has become a major tourist destination. If you want to avoid staying overnight amongst the crowds (which can cost upwards of 20 EUR for a dorm bed in the high season), then consider taking a daytrip to Kotor from Trebinje.
Daytrip by bus:
Take the morning bus from Trebinje to Herceg Novi (1 hour, about 5 EUR). From there, you have frequent buses to Kotor (also 1 hour, about 3 EUR). Herceg Novi is a laid-back beach town that is a great place for a pit-stop if you have some extra time between buses. Go downhill to the Old Town, hang out by the beach and grab a beer. If you miss the last bus on the way back (as of July 2017, the last Herceg Novi-Trebinje bus is at 8pm or 10pm depending on the day), contact us and we’ll have a taxi come pick you up in Herceg Novi (25 EUR).
