Plan a visit to Albania before it changes

Not many people have been to Albania it seems. In fact I was surprised at how few seem to know where it is.

Bordering with Greece, Montenegro, Kosovo and Macedonia, Albania is often overlooked. Being so close to the likes of Croatia and Italy, it would be difficult not to assume some similarities to those destinations, as they were maybe some 20 or 30 years ago.


Of course Albania is not undiscovered, but the infrastructure and tourism is still in its infancy, making it a great destination to experience ahead of the crowds.

When Albania successfully joins the EU, having yet to be accepted following it's application in 2009, there's a strong chance of it following in the footsteps the likes of Croatia; at least in respect of tourism.

So, of course I'm suggesting you visit as soon as possible. My 'Impressions of Albania' post gives a flavour of what to expect, but here's a little more info to help you plan a visit there.
