Tripadvisor Croatia Forum Q&A sessions.

Tripadvisor Croatia Forum is somewhat arguable the best source of information for the fellow travelers. One of the questions which is more often than not addressed is the island hopping in particular that from Split to Dubrovnik. Whilst it is possible during the peak season to organize this trip on catamaran, but in the end you may end up paying more rather than less. We at Dubrovnik Luxury Travel advise you to take up airliners approach to the issue of Split to Dubrovnik island hopping and get yourself booked a small yacht in the line of Jeanneau Prestige 36 Fly or even Sunseeker Camargue and with advance booking you can negotiate a fair deal price. This is an ideal yacht for a party of four. A fellow traveler asked on Tripadvisor Croatia Forum if he can hop from Brač to Hvar then onwards to Korčula and finally ending up in Dubrovnik without stopping at Mljet. And all this on foot by catamaran. For starters while Milna on Brač is picturesque you really want to go to Bol. You can only catch catamaran from Milna to Jelsa on Hvar which would leave you with two taxi journeys of which one is rather brutally tiresome, that from Jelsa on Hvar to Hvar on Hvar. If you have decided to hop the islands from Split to Dubrovnik then you might as well do it on a 7 day yacht charter. It is utterly pointless to spend 3 nights in Korčula if you are island hopping on a 10 days tour from Split to Dubrovnik without stopping on the islands of Vis, Mljet or Elaphite islands. Then you might as well can book a 10 day holiday on the island of Korčula and make one day outings in the direction of Split or Dubrovnik.

 

Carefully planned itineraries will save you money on the yacht journey as the fuel is never calculated into the price of the island hopping experience from Split to Dubrovnik and you can avoid paying for berths by the advantage of being moored off one of the islands in your yacht.

Star Wars Episode VIII film crew invades Dubrovnik

Star Wars Episode VIII film crew and actors have invaded the Old City of Dubrovnik. After successfully appearing in the Game of Thrones, Dubrovnik Old City’s main street Stradun has been transformed for the Star Wars Episode VIII movie set. This will significantly boost the city’s tourism industry which may  become new rising star of the film tourism industry. Great news for local businesses too so it was a great pleasure for my part that Intercon got involved with Disney production of the movie, catering for the transportation needs of film crew and actors alike.

Dubrovnik Old City’s unprecedented beauty and that of its surroundings are rather attracting for movie location hunters and this has even prompted the major of Dubrovnik to build a film studio. Does this mean that Dubrovnik is moving in the direction of Hollywood ? Could we possibly witness the sign resembling that of Hollywood seeing the day of light on Srdj Hill above Dubrovnik? Why not say I. Film industry is great for the luxury real estate business and perhaps this is just what Dubrovnik needs to improve further its status as the most luxury destination on the Adriatic coast.

And with the projects such as Gruz Marina, currently being undertaken and that of Golf Srdj Hill about to start, Dubrovnik is starting to resemble the European luxury destinations. What would be the icing on the cake for Dubrovnik’s  prosperity is the establishment of tax haven in the city itself. This in itself would bring the investments and would open a whole range of new opportunities.
