Customer Travel Tip: Go climb the mountain and the abandoned communist pyramid in town. Just be careful when sliding down!

Liked: They have beautiful women and the friendliest people you can imagine. Everyone likes to help you, and is always talking to you kindly. Food and beer is so cheap, it's almost laughable.

Disliked: There was an abundance of meat, sometimes it was hard to find other food to eat. Nightlife closes at 12, some clubs stay open later on the weekends.

Customer Travel Tip: Try to buy things that use as little packaging as possible to reduce the garbage problem. Eat the great fresh natural food that is everywhere and inexpensive in Albania rather than buying processed items in shops.

Liked: Safe and inexpensive and very relaxing and fun.

Disliked: Like most of Albania there is a real garbage problem. Garbage is thrown everywhere and it seems like it is only a matter of time before the whole country will become one big garbage heap. This is a real pity because Albania is a great travel destination otherwise.

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year

Customer Travel Tip: Check out the view from on top of the Piramida, then go inside - always something on.

Liked: Tirana is a lovely surprise for those that might not consider it a destination in itself, given the neighboring highlights. People are very friendly and make time to help visitors with plenty of smiles. The nearby mountains are easily reached with inexpensive buses and a cable car, an entire district is given over to cafe culture and nightlife, populated by mostly young locals, and the people I spent time talking to were all eager to share info about their culture, language, and city (since I asked).

Disliked: There is still a problem with throwing rubbish just anywhere outside one's home.

Trip Type:
Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Go to the old town centre, to the flea market and the green market (east and north of the main square), they are great! Also take some time to travel to other cities besides Tirana, Albania is bigger than its capital :-)

Liked: Tirana is super cheap to western standards, the people are very friendly and helpful, it's a bit of an adventure and you learn and see new stuff all the time.

Disliked: Getting around is always a bit of an adventure with badly indicated bus stops etc., however it's part of the deal. It's super hard to find nice post cards of Tirana ;-)
