"From centuries-old walled cities to dramatic coastlines and brimming national parks, Croatia and Montenegro are filled with culture and heritage. I have only travelled to the en-vogue duo once, and they made such an impression on me, I cannot wait to return. Steeped in thousands of years of history, I felt like I was wandering through a film set of winding cobbled streets framed with well-preserved Roman palaces. I recommend combining city and beach to truly get the most out of your trip. Start in the vibrant coastal metropolis of Dubrovnik, featured in the epic fantasy series Game of Thrones; discover medieval buildings and crystal clear waters before heading to Korcula Island – a small sleepy village filled with charming stone houses topped with red roofs; an architectural nod to Dubrovnik 30 years ago. The UNESCO World Heritage Site Kotor is unquestionably one of the most beautiful areas along the Adriatic, it reminded me of Vietnam, with towering limestone rocks enveloped by exquisite green waters."
