I'm planning on travelling to Tirana in November.
I've read a few articles regarding the safety in Albania and it seems like a pretty safe place and people are nice in general but I can't help to think that most of these people are caucasian. I'm Malaysian of British up bring. Would I be at risk?
I can accept being stared at and I can even tolerate people mocking me but my only concern would be getting physically harrased and ignored if I needed help going somewhere. Should I be worried?

I'm going to vistit Tirana on 11 September. From there i wanted to go to Himare (via Vlore). Do you know if it if possible to get Himare by direct bus or furgon from Tirana? I've read that Busses go at 6 am, 9 am and 12:00. Could you confirm this information? Eventually I can go with change in Vore. Where the bus leave from Tirana and how much is one way ticket?
I have also second question: I wanted to go from Berat to Ochrid in Macedonia. I know that I have to take bus to Elbasan and then change to bus which go to Pogradec, but I don't know if better and faster way is to get off near border crossing in Q.Thane (and go to Struga- but I don't know if I could find there any taxi or bus to Struga) or go until I reach Pogradec (and take taxi to border crossing).
Thank you in advance for any tips
how can we get from Tirana to Struga by public transport (e.g. bus). Thanks for your help, Ledia

Hello,3 people planning a trip to Albania on 3-16 October. Arrival in Tirana airport, then we would be the first in the mountains approximately 7 days of hiking (Kelmed, Valbona, Theth, absolutely Koman Lake), followed by a visit to the sea and at the end of two days Tirana. 1 days Berat would be good.We would not even rent a car to drive yourself. Who can recommend us to local tour operator or a driver? Who Recommendation for directions, accommodation, hiking trails. Which location is recommended by the sea? Thank you for all indications.
Have seen a lot o pics with buildings painted in very bright colors from Tirana. Are there any areas I would easily find these colorful places in Tirana City?
We are family with two teenagers spending some days in Tirana, Albania (28. and. 29. of Aug). Any suggestions for things to do/see for the young ones? Its supposed to be hot (35-36 degrees) which might limit our options for a comfortable and fun days? A good shopping centre with air condition in the city? The grown ups are very curious about Tirana`s communist past? Any suggestions for us?
Hello, can one rent a car in Shkodra?
My friend and I, we are planning a trip in Albania in August and we're lookig for cars to rent now. Any suggestions about reliable companies to compare rates etc.. We've made some research on line about Autoeurope but lots of comments are not so positive.

Hello everyone! I heard there is a ferry boat going several times a day between Vlore and Himare in summer. Is this true and how much does it cost? I am planning to visit Himare and heard that the trip from Vlore by road is a bit tiresome and long. So I thought I might as well take a ferry there.
I also have a question concerning visa: When entering Albania by ship from Italy, do I need to purchase an Albania VISA as a EU-citizen? How much does it cost?
Is there any bus or train that goes from Pristina to Timisoara or from Belgrade to Timisoara?
How much do they cost?
And how many hours of travel are they?
Approximately how many days would it take to explore the following cities:
Tirana, Vlora, Berat, Durres, Kruja.
I will be in Shkodra by the end of July for a couple of days. What I have todo to go to Dubrovnik from there? Thank you
Hi everybody, I´m planning an invidiual trip to Albania this summer along the coastal towns Durres - Vlore - Saranda, then to Corfu. I am now looking for accommodation... Can somebody advise me cheap, but nice and clean hotels not too far from the center and beach (price category max. 30 Euros/night) ? Unfortunately, there are no travel guides on Albania where I usually check.
Thank you for your information!
Does anyone know of a good tour guide to show me around Tirana and surrounding areas? I'm looking for something that can be done in a full day. Either private or small group is preferred. Thanks!
Is there any bus company from Montenegro to Tirana? How much it costs? From which cities of Montenegro to Tiran there are busses?
Hi, I'll be in Ohrid (coming from the US) this July and was thinking about travelling to Albania's coast from there for a few days. Upon some research, I'm considering Durres, Lezhe/Shengjin, the Himare area, Sarande, Vlore, and Ulcinj (in Montenegro, but it's largely Albanian-populated). I would only be able to get there via bus or train, so does anyone know if there are any routes from Ohrid to these places and how much it would cost? Also, how much would a hotel in any of these places cost roughly?
Of these places, I'm leaning towards Ulcinj since it seems so picturesque and like there'd be some good sightseeing. But, I'm far from decided so any knowledge you may have of the Albanian coast or know of any websites with info, it will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Hi, trying to book a bus trip from Patras (Greece) to Terana for 14th June 2013. We are coming from Zakynthos, so I assume Patras would be best chance of a bus to Albania, but any other ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.
Hi. I'm thinking of travelling to Albania in a couple of months time but have a dog with pet passport . I would be driving, entering from Macedonia and leaving to Greece. Do you think I'll have any border problems or need any other documents for the dog? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Bronwyn
Can anybody help me and write are there any buses from Shkoder to Berat or Saranda? and at what time?
We are going to Prokletije (Albanian Alps), we would like to cross borderline between Montenegro and Albania in valley, where are villages Gusinje and Theth. Don´t you know, if is it possible? When it is possible, do we need some special permission? Thank you for answers.
HI - some internet sources say that the festival takes place is Gjirokastra (spelling?) every five years and some every four years. The last one definitely took place in 2009 - so when is the next one - this year or the next? It is crazy, the discrepancy, but the more reliable sources like Wikipedia say 2014 - In any case I am eager to go - Thank you, Jean
Hi, Is it possible to hire a motorbike in Shkoder? Is a motorbike suitable for travelling on the dirt roads (eg. to Thethi)?
Has anyone driven this route recently? Is it possible in an ordinary car (i.e. not a four wheel drive)
Any information gratefully received, including recommendations for accommodation in both towns.
I have two days that I would like to spend on or around Lake Skadar. Can anyone offer suggestions on a good way to spend that time?
Would like to see any historic sites of note and am open to boating, kayaking, hiking, etc. and traveling by car from Shkodra.
