Hi, just wanted to get an idea from people that have made the trip from Zagreb to Dubrovnik on what mode of transport they used and recomendations?? It seem that the only two ways I can find is by bus (11hrs) or fly.

Thanks!

I haven't made that specific journey but I did travel through Serbia, Bosnia and Croatia by bus last summer, including a visit to Dubrovnik. Most journeys go through the night, so you can depart at say 10PM and arrive 11 hours later at 9AM, saving you the cost of accomodation for the night and keeping all your days free. All the buses I went on were proper western-style coaches with airconditioning so pretty comfortable, although they were all packed full. Tickets are also very cheap.

There is a train line in Croatia which goes down as far as Split, so depending on your overall plan and how much time you have, you could get the train there, then take a ferry the rest of the way and see some of the coastline.
