Every week through the height of summer we are hitting the streets of Dubrovnik to discover what you, our visitors, think about the city as a tourist destination. This week we caught up with a young traveller from China who was visiting Dubrovnik for the first time, Jian Genuj from Shanghai
What are your impressions of Dubrovnik?
The Adriatic Sea is absolutely perfect, it is so clean and clear, really amazing. We love just watching the sea and the views. However, I haven’t been in the sea as I don’t know how to swim.
What do you think about the prices in Dubrovnik?
I think when compared to the prices in China that Dubrovnik is a little more expensive, not much, but yes a little more expensive.
Was it complicated to get to Dubrovnik from China?
Yes, a little, we came through Italy and the flights were not so easy. We are on a tour of Europe so we expected to travel a lot and spend time at airports.
Where are you staying in Dubrovnik? And do you think that the price of accommodation is reasonable?
We are staying in a hostel and the prices are competitive, it isn’t too expensive. It’s worth looking on sites like Party Hostel Guru, they have a ton of guides on the best ones in Dubrovnik if you’re looking to go out and be social.
What are your opinions on the restaurants and café bars?
I don’t really have an opinion as we haven’t been to a restaurant or café bar. We cook everything ourselves in our hostel. We go to the shops every day and buy everything we need, meat, bread and vegetables and then cook ourselves. I would say that the price of vegetables in Dubrovnik, even though we buy them in the farmer’s market, is twice as much as it is in China.
