Trebinje is a small sized city situated in the Trebišnjica river valley in south eastern Herzegovina, about 30 km by road from Dubrovnik, Croatia, on the Adriatic coast. Despite its small size, there is plenty going on in this town in the way of live music, festivals, outdoor activities, and nightlife. It is one of the most beautiful cities in Bosnia and Herzegovina and is called "the city of sun and platan trees". The city is the economic and cultural centre of the region of Eastern Herzegovina.

If you get a taxi from Dubrovnik airport without arranging in advance, the standard price is 60 euro.

Trebinje is in close proximity to bigger, better known cities like Dubrovnik (in Croatia), Herceg Novi (in Montenegro), and Mostar, and has bus connections to these cities. There are also daily bus connections to other major cities in the region like Sarajevo, Podgorica, Kotor, Belgrade and Novi Sad. As of August 2016, the bus from Dubrovnik to Trebinje leaves around 1:30-1:45pm Mon.-Sat., costs about 5 euro, and takes 45 minutes to 1 hour. Be sure to wait for the bus to show up, as it is not uncommon for the Dubrovnik bus station to claim that the bus isn't running when it actually is. If you're coming from Kotor, consider taking a bus to Herceg Novi first, and then catch a bus from Herceg Novi to Trebinje (the last bus leaves at 8pm, costs 5 euro, and lasts about 1 hour). This will save you at least 5 euro and several hours of transit time compared to the "direct" Kotor-Trebinje bus, which makes a detour through Podgorica.
Roads in Bosnia and Hercegovina are often only a single lane in either direction, and due to the mountainous topography tend to be very windy and speed limits are lower (mostly 80 kmh). However, in recent years significant modernisation has taken place. Beware of trucks and people dangerously overtaking on any road. There are many tunnels, and you must always drive with your lights ON (day or night) or risk being pulled over and fined. Trebinje is situated very close to the Adriatic coast (Dubrovnik, Herceg Novi). It is around 3 hours drive from Zabljak (Durmitor national park in Montenegro), 2.5 hours away from Mostar, and 30 minutes from Dubrovnik. Travelling by car offers many options for daytrips from Trebinje to more touristed and more expensive cities.

If you are visiting the city by bicycle, there is a bicycle repair shop called Sirena just across the river from Tropic Supermarket/Market 99 that is open from roughly 9am-1pm and 5pm-9pm.
Trebinje offers plenty of outdoor activities for those that enjoy hiking or adventure. The city is surrounded by 7 peaks, 5 of which have unique Austro-Hungarian era fortresses that can be hiked to and explored. Each peak offers hikes ranging in levels of difficulty from beginner to advanced, with hikes doable in 1.5-3.5 hours. Strac Fortress is one of the most famous and unique in the region, a modern facade that originally had over 365 rooms and provides fantastic views of the surrounding area. Paragliding from Trebinje's highest peak, Mount Leotar, is also an experience that should not be missed for those who want to try the sport at a fraction of the cost that would be charged in most Western countries. Canoeing down the Trebišnjica river is also a fun way to see the city. Finally, stop by the city's river beach (bazen) to soak in some sun, cool off in the river, and enjoy a peaceful summer day.
Wine. There are numerous family owned vineyards and wineries in the region producing excellent wines which can be hard to find elsewhere.
Hercegovina is well known for its wine, and Trebinje is the perfect place to sample the local varieties for a fraction of what you would pay elsewhere. Family-run wineries dot the outskirts of Trebinje, and a degustations are available starting from 5 euro per person (including food). Zilavka is the local white wine, and Vranac is the local variety of red wine. You can find both of these wines, often from Trebinje's best winieries, at almost every cafe and bar in town. Likewise, various types of rakija purchased in a local cafe will be homemade. Be sure to stop by the local market located in the market square (piazza) every morning to find various types of homemade rakija being sold, as well as homemade wine. The best variety is on the Saturday market, when farmers come in from the villages surrounding Trebinje to sell their produce and alcohol.
