    • Getting in Albania (Shkoder) coming from Podgorica

      Shkoder Nov 19, 2014 at 3:32 AM

      What's the best way to get to Koplik or Skhoder coming from Montenegro? I've read there's a bus that goes via Ulcinj, but I see that's quite a detour. Aren't there any buses connecting Podgorica to Koplik/Skhoder passing lake Skhoder by the northern shore?

      Thanks

    • From Skhodra to Sarande

      Albania Sep 4, 2014 at 4:04 AM

      Hello again! I'm in Skhodra now and my aim is to go to Sarande on Saturday. I saw that there might be a bus to Durres at approx. 7.15 am and a bus from Durres to Sarande at approx. 11.00 am. Is there anyone who could confirm to me that these buses exist and that this is doable? I'd prefer going through Durres than Tirane.

      Thanks a bunch!

    • What does Ritje mean?

      Albania Sep 2, 2014 at 10:46 AM

      Hello! This might be a very silly question but today I went to a restaurant in Tirana and the receipt I got had this "Ritje 5%" in it. Is it a service fee (gratuity) or something else? Tried to google but ended up finding nothing. I just want to make sure I understood it correctly. Please, help an idiot!

    • Shkoder to Ulcinj

      Shkoder Aug 31, 2014 at 1:35 PM

      Hi together,

      I am planning to go from Shkoder to Ulcinj on the 18th of September. I just found one time table which is saying there is a bus departuring at 11:30 from Shkoder and arriving at 13:00 in Ulcinj. The problem is, I have to keep on from Ulcinj to Kotor, and the bus over there is starting at 13:00. So most likely I would miss the bus. So anybody of you knows another way to come from Shkoder to Ulcinj?

      Border crossing questions

      Albania Jul 20, 2014 at 1:31 AM

      Hi all,
      we shall be driving from Tirana to Podgorica this August. Visiting all day Tirana on 17th August we will then leave towards Podgorica the day after. Will probably spend the night in Shkoder and then cross the border to Montenegro the following morning.
      Is Hani Hotit the border I should cross? I also read somewhere that the road is not so good bur since I am driving an offroader I am not so concerned, unless taking another border will reduce the travelling time.
      Do borders open 24/7 or only during the day?

      Thanks in advance.

    • 10 Day Itinerary in October

      Albania Jul 4, 2014 at 7:30 AM

      Hey Everyone

      My apologies if this has been asked before but I need a little help trying to plan a trip for myself and my husband this October. We are travelling the 20th October into Tirana Departing the same airport the 30th October.

      Any advice or a rough itinerary of what not to miss would be awesome, we really want to get a feel for the place but are not the kind of people to sit on a beach but would love to see some of the coastline.

      This will be my husbands first time travelling anywhere and my first time planning a trip alone.

      Thanks for your help in advance.

    • Shortest car itinerary from Budva (Montenegro) to Sarandë

      Albania Jun 16, 2014 at 12:12 PM

      Hi Virtualtourist!

      Me and my girlfriend are traveling by car in Croatia, Montenegro and Albania now in June. Since we are on a quite tight schedule we wonder what the fastest route from Budva to Sarandë is?Google Maps suggest E851 towards Durres and then SH4/SH8 along the coast down to Sarandë. I have also read that this is a quite scenic route. However, is it doable in one day? How long time do you think it takes? We are using a quite small car, how are the roads?

      Other tips on things to see and do in Sarandë would also be nice, we have for example heard a lot about Ksamil!

      Thank you!

      Kind regards,
      Jonathan

    • Is my travel itinerary for Albania doable?

      Albania Jun 10, 2014 at 12:32 PM

      Hello! Me and my friend are travelling to Albania on the 31st of August 2014 and leave on the 12th of September. Our travel plan so far is this:

      Sunday to Wednesday - Tirana Wednesday to Saturday - Lake Shkodra Resort (maybe a day trip to Thethi or Lake Koman) Saturday - spent travelling from Shkodra to Sarande Saturday evening to Wednesday - Sarande
      Wednesday to Friday - Berat
      And the flight leaves from Tirana around 3pm on Friday

      Tell me is this trip doable in Albania with furgons and bumpy roads etc? Is it too much sitting in a car? We will only be using public transport (furgons, buses) to travel.

      Thanks in advance,

      Karoliina
