      What is road condition from Shkoder to Theth today?

      Theth Jul 16, 2014 at 2:50 PM

      I was looking for some fresh information about the road condition to the Theth. I asked some local owners of accommodation I found via web search and I got contradictory opinions. Is there anyone who has been there recently? Is the road good for small car?

      How long would it take to drive from lake to Theth without SUV ?

      Thanks for any reliable advice.

      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.

    • Details regarding bus travel to Tirana from Pristina

      by johnmayp Online Now 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!!

      by lhommerun Online Now Sep 16, 2013 at 4:48 PM

      Hi,

      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?

      Thanks

      by darekd84 Online Now Aug 28, 2013 at 10:58 AM

      Hello,

      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

      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

      by chrisvandenbroucke Online Now Oct 6, 2010 at 1:14 PM

      Hello,
      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

      by malashen Online Now Jul 5, 2010 at 4:20 PM

      Greetings,

      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 booking.com, 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!
