Solo travel experience

I loved Albania! Top three favourite country out of the 25 or so I've visited. It's very safe. I hitchhiked solo. I started in Saranda, then went inland and hit up Ghirokastra (must see) and further into Korce. Then I went north and visited the Accursed Mountains (very beautiful). I took the ferry across Lake Komen and it was fantastic. I stayed in a home stay and did some hiking.

Solo travel experience

I spent 2.5 weeks in Albania and Corfu and it was amazing. I relied mostly on bus/public transportation - it was difficult but manageable. Some places don't have a proper bus station or even bus stop, I just relied on talking to tourist offices and hotel staff. Everyone was super helpful. I did rent a jeep one day in Saranda and beach hopped for the day. I went from Tirana to Berat to Gjirokastra to Saranda to Corfu, back to Saranda to Himaria to Tirana. Day trips to Kruge, Blue Eye, Butrint, Ksamil plus the jeep day from Sarande to Dhermi and back stopping at multiple beaches and viewpoints a long the way. I would recommend everywhere I went - I ran out of time and wanted to explore the North a bit more!

Solo travel experience

Albania is amazing. I did this trip and I have plenty to recommend. In Tirana take the cable car up the mountain to the rotating bar. Visit Bunkd, it's really interesting. Tirana is very chilled and it's easy to waste a day just wandering around and looking at things. Berat, walk up to the castle on top of the hill, the views are breathtaking and it's not a huge hike. If you take SH4 south, around Lekël, you'll go past some cafes inside waterfalls that are pretty cool. Definitely visit Blue Eye. I ate breakfast when it was included but otherwise there's no shortage of places to buy food along the route. I went Tirana, Baret, Blue Eye, Sarandë and then drove up the coast and back to Tirana. I didn't get to visit Theth, but its first on my list when I go back. The roads are insanely windy and can be dangerous with people over taking on bends, animals in the road etc.

Solo travel experience

Albania is one of the 9 Balkans countries I visited during my 2 month birthday trip. This country truly blows my mind. I stayed in Shkodër, Tirana, Sarande, Gjirokaster and Berat. People are super friendly and I think this is one of the underrated travel destinations.

Solo travel experience

I went to Albania for 5 days this year and it was wonderful! I stayed in Tirana and did day trips from there. The people are incredibly nice, kind and helpful to tourists. This was my second time in Albania, the first time I went with an Albanian friend to the southern beaches.

Local experience

If you looking for historical places I would recommend Korca, Pogradec, Berat. Must see capital city of Tirana. Very modern city, lots of bars restaurants. Food is excellent and its cheap. Whilst if you want coast beaches, then you go on south of Albania Vlora, Saranda, Ksamil.
