Hvar among 53 Places to Go in 2008 of New York Times
Under the title ” The 53 Places to Go in 2008“, in its travel supplement , New York Times writes about where to go in 2008 and at 11th place (see above image) recommends Hvar as “the St. Tropez of Croatia“
” What’s on your travel itinerary in the new year? From a new luxury hotel in Laos (where you can take in the view of ancient temples from a chaise lounge by the infinity pool) to the waterfront night clubs of Hvar (the St. Tropez of Croatia) to Death Valley (where recent heavy rains have some flower bloggers speculating on a dazzling spring bloom next year), the travel choices for global nomads have never been more varied. ” writes NY Times in the very introduction of the article..
With accompanied photo of Komiza Beach (btw – Komiza is a place on the Island of Vis – not Hvar), Hvar is described in the following passage :
” As Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast has become a new Riviera, Hvar has become its St.-Tropez: a tiny village that fills with yachts and international partyers over the summer. While the waterfront Carpe Diem (www.carpe-diem-hvar.com) remains the island’s night-life center, narrow stone alleys are lined with chic cocktail lounges and hotel terraces, including the rooftop pool at the new Adriana hotel, Croatia’s first Leading Small Hotels of the World member (www.suncanihvar.com/adriana).”
