The Best of Albania

I am both looking for, and providing information about Albania. Please read the growing list of the best of Albania (compiled through personal research done on the internet). Please add, or edit items to list as you see fit. If you live in Albania, or consider yourself an expert on the country then please contribute your tips, hints, and favourites based on the criteria listed below. Once complete, this list should help visitors find exactly "the very best in Albania".

PLEASE only respond to this thread if you're interested in helping to edit or contribute items to the list. Thank you.

CRITERIA for LIST:
-memorable/dramatic scenery & landscape photography. Where to find the best (viewpoints, vistas, city views, panoramas, skylines, sunsets, etc..)?
-the unique outdoors, hikes/hilltops/lookouts, and amazing views?
-lovely/charming streets, cute villages, and magnificent/attractive architecture?
-authentic/unforgettable "local" travel experiences (i.e. non-typical, interesting/special experiences (full of original character), and unique only to the local area).
-the best freebies (museums, galleries excluded)
-specialty/unique regional cuisine/gastronomy (or the BEST places to eat (w/ local's prices, food made with love/regional favorites, and not too many tourists eating there)),
-anything else off-the beaten path.

Thanks again

Before anyone goes out of their way to respond to "sandy's" message, I'd like to point out that this person has a long history of posting dozens of similar "best of" threads, without ever responding to anyone else's message. Moreover, the same message gets spammed to dozens of travel forums (always under different nicknames), and many members of this site have strong suspicions that the hard work of those who answer "sandy's" posts is used to make this person money, which makes them really regret the time they spent in the past answering his/her questions. (In one previous thread, "sandy" styled him/her-self a "freelance travel writer".)

Further conversation on those points does not belong in this thread (please use this other thread for that instead), but a single warning like this has been deemed acceptable.

Suspicions based on what? I haven't made a cent from travel tips I gather online. And plus everyone knows there's no money in online travel writing.

I hear they have knock-off Armenian chestwigs in Albania.

Who's talking about online travel writing only

I beg to differ, I'm a multi-millionaire on-line travel writer - but then again, I WAS zulti-millionaire before I became an on-line travel writer...

Yes I believe you're right I have seen this stunt before.

Might not be a money making angle maybe just some strange chronic need for cyber attention.

Good info about the chest wigs-what colours do they come in?

They come in lots of colours, but it's only the green ones that are worth anything.

Sandy, the day you share any of your 'findings' with us will be the day I start replying productively to your posts. Until then, I'll reserve my time for posters with genuine questions and I suggest others do likewise.

Well said.

Still, one activity in Albania I would like to recommend is counting the number of Mercedes cars which still have the letter D on it

Here's an interesting fact about Albania: It's located in ... Europe!

Hope I helped with the research!
