Sarajevo to Mostar by Train

If you are travelling to Sarajevo, then you are most likely going to the capital of the Herzegovina region i.e Mostar as well; in this case, you have two options: take a train or bus. There are, of course, some advantages on both sides. If you want to take bus, you can book your ticket online and you can go as early as 6.00 AM or as late as 8.00 PM; and the schedule is quite frequent, every 1-2 hours. However, since it is cheaper, faster, more comfortable, and more scenic by train; why would I choose bus?

Jika Anda jalan-jalan ke Sarajevo, bisa dipastikan anda juga akan mampir ke ibu kota wilayah Herzegovina, Mostar. Terdapat dua pilihan jika Anda ingin menggunakan public transport: kereta atau bus. Tentu saja tiap opsi memiliki kelebihannya maisng-masing. Misalnya, jika Anda memutuskan untuk naik bus, Anda dapat membeli tiket secara online jauh-jauh hari dan jadwalnya pun cukup banyak tiap harinya; tiap 1-2 jam sekali dari jam 6 pagi sampai jam 8 malam. Namun, berhubung kalau naik kereta akan lebih murah, lebih cepat, lebih nyaman, dan lebih indah pemandangannya; mengapa saya harus memilih bus?
