Similar books to Albania (Bradt Travel Guides). Gillian Gloyer lived in Albania for four years working with the country’s political parties and is still a frequent visitor there. Publication Date: January 9, 2015.

She offers tips on how to get through the airport without hassles, which hotels are worth booking, and what to see in just about every part of Albania a tourist might go to. Her writing style is well beyond the norm for travel guides, without a hint of the Weltschmerz that afflicts so many travel writers. She has a sly sense of humor, and will even boldly tell you to avoid a hotel run by the local mafia.

Bradt's Albania also includes details of watching the country's rare wildlife, such as wildcats, lynx, wolves and bears, and of visiting its three World Heritage Sites: the archaeological site and national park of Butrint and the Ottoman cities of Berati and Gjirokastra.

Albania is perhaps the last hidden corner of Eastern Europe, opening its frontiers to travellers after decades of tyranny and instability, and now safe for visitors. The Bradt guide takes a look at how and where to explore the heritage of a country influenced by the Greeks, Romans, Italians and Turks, who have all left their mark on the landscape and culture. Gillian Gloyer's guide helps travellers get the most out of their sightseeing whilst enjoying Albania's hospitality and natural beauty.

Written by an insider and Albania enthusiast, the Bradt guide to Albania takes a fresh look at how and where to explore the heritage of this hidden corner of eastern Europe.  The guide includes cycling routes and hikers’ trails to help independent travelers make the most of the Mediterranean countryside and there are up-to-date details on outdoor activities, wildlife and history.  Albania’s archaeological treasures are well covered, including the ancient city of Butrint and hilltop site of Byllis.

Albania is a beautiful country and this is one of very few guides to the country. It is rather incomplete and some of the information is dated but it is about the best resource out there on this largely unexplored county.

Albania is beautiful and the people are friendly but the country lacks the infrastructure needed for most tourism. There is no passenger trains into the country. Public water is not safe. Electricity is unreliable. You won't find any of the multinational fast food chains there (or multinational anything). The drivers appear to follow no particular traffic etiquette. But it is a beautiful, historical country with unbelievable archeological sites.

If you want to travel around Albania and do more than just hit the few most visited highlights, this is no doubt the book to take.

It is the only English-language guide devoted to Albania alone, and it offers a good coverage of the places and things to see, fairly up to date details of transport and accomodation options, decent maps of both regions and individual towns or cities, as well as well-written background information on culture and history. All the stuff you would expect from good practical guidebooks like the better-known Lonely Planet series (whose coverage of Albania is dismal!).

It is also fairly balanced in covering both budget and upmarket places to stay, something other books often fail at.

So why only 4 stars?

Well, some of the maps would need to be more accurate - they sometimes showed places on the wrong street or corner. Also, in a few cases, practical details were missing, with the existence of accomodation being mentioned, but not the usual details on how much it cost. Same goes for transport info.

Finally, and most mystifyingly, the author has chosen to use non-standard place names ("definite", conjugated forms) even though she herself admits this form is not what you will see in Albania on maps, destination signs of buses or road-signs!

However these shortcomings are well outweighed by all the useful info in the book. If you are planning to tour this little-visited country independently, don't leave home without a copy!

Gloyer's book inspired my trip to Albania, and it was useful every step of the way.

She offers tips on how to get through the airport without hassles, which hotels are worth booking, and what to see in just about every part of Albania a tourist might go to. Her writing style is well beyond the norm for travel guides, without a hint of the Weltschmerz that afflicts so many travel writers. She has a sly sense of humor, and will even boldly tell you to avoid a hotel run by the local mafia. Also, there aren't many travel guides that include tips on how to help alleviate poverty and suffering in the country being visited, but Ms Gloyer thoughtfully includes such information. She obviously loves the country and is very fond of its people, and it's quite a gift to Albania to have such an honest and worthwhile travel guide available in English.

Although a bit superficial, it does hit the highlights as you travel around Albania. Besides none of the other major guidebook series have books on this country, so it is the best by default.

Great source for info in planning my trip!! Not much out there on Albania, and they managed to find a lot!! Bradt guides usually are the best!

This book offers excellent information on a country not often visited. Description of sights and places to visit are very helpful as are the maps of the individual regions. Great pictures to tweek your interest.

You might think no one writes books about Albania. That is why it is important to read the ones that there are.
The guide has lots of side stories about history and people. However, the maps are very basic and show things in the wrong locations. Don't depend on the transportation information since most of it had changed since publishing. I ended up getting stuck since some of the bus connections it mentioned don't exist.
