Montenegro is described as a small place where the mountains meet with the sea, whose peaks are reminiscent of the American National Park Yosemite.
"Avoid Dubrovnik, but take a flight to it. Then take a taxi and head south to the border of Croatia and Montenegro, wait with patience and get to Montenegro," the authors recommend.
The article focuses on Boka Kotorska bay, i.e. Kotor, for which it is understandable that it is under UNESCO protection.

“Unwrap your camera and find your spot at one of the many endless beaches," they recommend.
The authors put special emphasis on St. Stefan and the Aman Hotel as a place for vacation.
"St. Stefan is perhaps the most exclusive place to rest in the world. It's hard to describe what makes this island so beautiful, but privacy is one of the items," writes GQ authors.
Apart from St Stefan, Kotor is also recommended, as well as a visit to Durmitor and Ostrog Monastery. They are particularly delighted with the Blue Cave, a cave located in Boka.
