    A sort of reverse tip...

    You might think that men standing around on street corners offering to change your currency would be an obvious tourist trap, but you'd be wrong! The real tourist trap would be to change your money in a hotel or shop, you will most likely get a much better rate from the man on the street, or at least that's what we found in 2002. Obviously check what the rates are first - even without any Albanian you shouldn't have a problem, just wave your Euros or Dollars questioningly at the man, and he'll nod and show you what he'll give you in exchange on his pocket calculator. Compare this to what your hotel offers, I'm willing to bet it's more!

    We made the mistake of taking bags of food and drink with us to Albania and once we arrived , we were swarmed by children trying to look in our bags and asking us for food!!

    Unique Suggestions: Its wise to take a bare minimum for such a short trip!

    TREVOR MEETS THE LOCALS!!

    Once you have arrived on dry land you are given an hour free time to explore (ample time believe me!!). Take this opportunity to meet the locals. Dont worry if you're shy, they will come to you!!

    Some tourist traps in the good sense:

    The seaside: beach, sea and sun.
    Ancient city of Butrint
    The Ksamil seacoast. A trip to Vlore would reveal spectacular views of the riviera with some of the most unspoiled beaches of the Mediterranean.
