I wonder what is the best neighborhood to live in tirana.
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

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?
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?
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.

I'm coming to Tirana in December for a whole week, but I have one weekend completely free. I do not want to travel far, but would like to see something interesting, not just the city. I like countrysides, landscapes, parks,... Maybe some village? Anything worth seeing.
Do you have any suggestions?
Thanks for the help!
Does anyone know which bus stop/station the buses from Sarande arrive at please? Urgent, as need to book hotel as have appointment at Bitish Embassy next week.
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
i heard that prizren is now only a few hours away, thanks to the new highway. But - as we may travel there with a class, are there buses (furgons are out of question)? what time do they leave?
Could someone recommend me some safe place to leave my car? We're planning to spend half a day in Tirana, and would like to leave the car somewhere safe, and as close to city center as possible.
Is there some shoping mall where I could leave it, or some safer parking spot?
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!
i would like to ask, if there is a paid car park, where is possible to leave a car for a week or so. Or is it safe to park it just on the street? Either Tirana or it can be any other town.
If i go to Albania by bus from Croatia, is there any schedule how to get from Ulcinj to Albania or i must really hire taxi to cross the border?
Thank you for the answers
i just want to no iz there a coach that goes from tirana to pristina,if so what time?thanks
We are trying to catch a bus or train from Athens, Greece to Tirana, Albania on a Tuesday or Wednesday in a two weeks--does anyone know how to find the buses in Athens that head into Albania? Any tips at all would be helpful!
I'm Jo and I'm from England.
I'm new to this forum so forgive me if this isn't the correct place to put my question.
I'm coming to Albania in 3 weeks time to visit my boyfriend's family for the first time. We have been together for a year and I would really like to make a good impression.
Please would you let me know what would be an appropriate gift to give to his parents? I have asked my partner what I should bring and he said not to worry about it...but I don't want to turn up empty handed.
Any suggestions would be great!
I'm a Turkish citizen who live in Sarajevo and want to travel from Sarajevo and Tirana by bus on Thursday most probably.
According to my research, This route given in below is the best way to get to Tiran;
* Please correct me if there are SHORTER WAY WITHOUT VISITING AN EXTRA CITY than this tariff given above. If this tariff has many difficulties, disabilities etc... then, what kind of route should I follow?
* How much would this trip cost to me in total and how long it takes?
* I read that during the days there are busses and minibusses several times servicing between Kotor-Ulcinj; Ulcinj-Skoder and also Skoder-Tiran. But the point is that we are not in the summer time anymore! We are in winter period and what are the possibilities of finding public transportation in between these cities in winter time as we are in now? In another saying, I really need strong assistance of bus or minibus 'approximate or absolute' timetable.
P.S: I'm a student so my budget is really limited.
Thanks in advance for all. I'm lookin forward for your opinions facilitations. Wish you to have nice trips all of your life...
