    • Where is a nice place to stay in Albania?

      Albania Apr 18, 2014 at 9:59 AM

      Hello all Virtual Tourists!

      Planning a beach vacation in the end of july/august this summer. But we are wondering where to stay and what to see.

      We are dreaming of finding a quaint little village by the coast. One that is not ruined by tourism or giant hotels and other terrible architecture in general. And of course… with a nice beach. Whether the beach is made up of sand, pebbles or rocks is indifferent. Just as long as it is beautiful, and the general vibe of the city/village is nice.

      Any ideas? And any thoughts on Saranda vs. Himare vs. Vlora?

    • Getting around in Albania

      Albania Apr 17, 2014 at 5:33 AM

      Hello forum!

      My boyfriend and I are planning a trip to Albania this summer. However, there are no direct flights to Tirana from Oslo, so we are contemplating some different options. Would love to hear your thoughts and tips, since we are in fact wuite clueless. :)

      Destination --> VLORA!

      Option 1: Flight to Corfu. Then we hop on the ferry to Saranda, and somehow find our way up to Vlora. I have read about both buses and "furgons" that travel this distance, but what I dont know is how long it takes. How many hours should we estimate for this trip? Can it be booked in advance? And since we are norwegians (not used to high heat) will there be air condition in the vehicle?

      Option 2: Flight to Brindisi. Then hop on a ferry straight to Vlora. I have found a several forums talking about this trip, but I am having a tough time actually seeing the details. It seems the boat sails all night. Is it normal to sleep in your seat? In a cabin? What is recommended here?


      Super grateful for all help.

    • Details regarding bus travel to Tirana from Pristina

      Tirana Feb 28, 2014 at 1:27 PM

      I need to travel one way, by bus, from Pristina to Tirana, on 21 April 2014. I can't find any information about schedules or bus companies that offer this route. I understand from what I have read that there are several per day but I cannot find any specifics. If anyone knows of bus company names, location(s) in Pristina, and times that the bus(es) depart Pristina for Tirana, I'd be most grateful. I have less than 24 hours in Pristina so not a lot of time to be researching this when I arrive so I really need to know what I need to do beforehand. I greatly appreciate any information you all can provide... Thanks!!

    • Racism in Tirana?

      Tirana Sep 16, 2013 at 4:48 PM


      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?

    • Busses in September Tirana-Himare and Berat-Macedonia

      Tirana Aug 28, 2013 at 10:58 AM


      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

      Bus or Furgon Tirana to Berat

      Please could someone give me advice about travelling from Tirana to Berat e.g. where to get a bus or a furgon, the frequency and the cost? I understand it takes about 3 hours - is that for both a bus or a furgon?

      We will be in Tirana during the public holidays 28/29 November 2012 - will buses run on these days or should we plan our trip to avoid these days? We want to go to Berat, stay in Berat one night and return the next day.

      Any info will be very welcome.

      Arrival at the Tirana airport

      Tirana Oct 6, 2010 at 1:14 PM

      I will be arriving in two weeks in Tirana but my plane lands at midnight. Buses seem no longer to ride after 6 or 7 PM.
      I am on a tight budget and don't want to waste time by going by taxi to the expensive airport hotels. Of the cheaper hotels in the centre, I don't find mailaddresses so I don't know whether I will be able to arrive there in the middle of the night.
      By the way, I don't want luxury but quiet so a dorm is no option for me.
      Same problem with Kruja: don't find any hotel with mail to ask them if they still would open up for me at night.
      Third option : does the airport stay open at night ? That way, I could take the first train or bus in the morning to any place in Albania (don't need much sleep)

      Thanks for the answers

      Traveling to Albania by car

      Tirana Jul 5, 2010 at 4:20 PM


      This summer, I am planning to spend 5-7 days in Albania traveling there by my own car. The questions:

      1) Could someone recommend a reliable site offering budget hotels in Tirana, Saranda, Durres, etc? There are no entries for Albania on, which I usually use whereever I go. I would need hotels with secure parking for my car.

      2) Is there ferry crossing between Corfu in Greece and Saranda, and if yes, how long would it take, and how much would I pay for crossing with a car? Is there some website with schedules, etc.?

      Many thanks in advance!
