I do hope you can help since I am getting nowhere, fast. I am planing a trip with my two children, very good travellers, in August. We are planing to fly in and out of Dubrovnik, spend a few days there ( how many do we need?), then move onto Hvar ( can we get there by bus and are ferries frequent? Is two days enough?). Then I hear Montenegro is lovely, however I see most people are doing just daytrips to there? I had earmarked 4 days there, tho, not sure what is the best place to stay for beaches and sightseeing. What would you recommend? Also, is it too much? I would rather not rent a car since I am a chicken about driving in places I dont know so I was hoping there would be plenty of local busses. Or would you recommend Sarajevo for those 4 days since a daytrip seems to be enough for most people to the Kotor/preanji area? And then, it seems like there are only two busses from Kotor to Dubrovnik, my flight leaves in the afternoon, do I really have to take the 8 AM one?
I really dont know if I have a good basic plan or not, dont want to spend too much time going between places but want both beaches and things to see. I hope hope to hear from someone with suggestions and thank you in advance.
