Split to Plitvice on my way to Dubrovnik


while traveling to Ljublana to Split, I made a stupid mistake. I took a flight from Zagreb to split, i should have travelled to Plitvice from Zagreb as I understand that its nearer to Zagreb. I plan to go To Dubrovnik from here while may be seeing one of the islands - Hvar or Korkula. I am thinking of making a day trip to Plitvice from Split. But i realize that it can be very tiring as one way travel is 3 hrs.

is there a smarter way of planning - i go to Plitvice and i leave to Dubrovnik from there? or shall i extend my stay at split to return back. Are there any overnight ship i can take to dubrovnik to save time? I am not very fond of bus travel either - prefer trains always. These days its 35 degrees here. Are these buses (split to Plitvice) comfortable in this heat for such long journeys? Need some practical advice.

if you already paid your ticket Zagreb-Split, then it makes no sense to ignore it. there are no trains for your destinations, except btw Zagreb and Split. it also makes no sense in making a 1-day trip from Split, as it's just too far. all buses are airconed, hence comfy.

for ferries, check www.jadrolinija.hr

for seeing an island, also check that website - the best would be to take a cat to Korcula and then by bus to Dubrovnik.
