I am going to Croatia in August. My friend and I have decided as just going for 9 days we shall focus more to the South and make sure we go back another time to visit the North. We have booked flights to Dubrovnik and thought we could spend some time there(summer festival on) and some in Split. We would also like to visit Hvar and wondered if anyone has done this - should we perhaps stay there overnight or are there day trips that take in some of the other islands. We are also thinking about visiting Bosnia and Montenegro but again think pehaps they can be done as day trips from Dubrovnik? As I say, only there 9 days and would like to fit in as much as possible but also a couple of days relaxation - any guidelines will be appreciated. thanks

Mostar in Bosnia and trips to Montenegro are definitely doable as day trips from Dubrovnik - I especially recommend Mostar.

If you want Dub - Mostar - Sarajevo - Dub can be done in 2 days but on your scedule prob not worth it.

Agree with Mostar. Unless things have changed dramatically under reconstruction since the war, Bosnia's road system is fairly slow-going because the country is very mountainous. It therefore limits the distances you can do - you don't presumably want to be in a vehicle all day.
The main attractiveness of Croatia for most people is the coastal split - the limestone scenery backdrop against the blue of the sea. Visiting islands is fine - some of these islands very large large and provide the opportunity for a few days of them.
The coastal road is quite good now and there is a motorway from Split to Zagreb (about 150 miles) that cuts across the high land and runs very close to the N Bosnian border.
When you say N. Croatia, I guess you mean the area around Pula - the hinterland towards Zagreb is relatively land and (IMHO) less interesting.
Istria is wonderful especially a place called Medulin. Not much there but so peaceful and not many tourists. Near to Pula.
