    Visitor Centre Virpazar 2010

    Located in the centre of Virpazar,
    you can tell that this the showcase
    of how Montenegrians view the future
    of tourism in Montenegro. The staff speak very good
    English and can answer just about any question you throw at them.
    Although Virpazar is the starting point for many trails and
    excursions for hikers, bikers and other outdoor
    activities, I see that they are targeting the market
    for groups of Europeans lokking to spend €100
    upwards per day, that including accom, meals, and
    tours on the lake with guides and a few €uros
    left to spend on souvenirs. I think if they
    catered to all categories and maybe even
    simple overnight facilities for bikers and hikers,
    it would bring more nature lovers causing a smaller
    carbon footprint than tour buses with well off
    westerners who will be flying into airports like Podgarica,
    Dubrovnik and Tivda.
    Maybe the lack of funds to properly develop the region at least stave
    off mass tourism for the nearest decade.
    The visitor centre has one of the best views for a tourist office
    I have seen so far.

    Hang out in the town of Virpazar

    Although this 'TOWN' is more a place that seems
    to revolve completely around tourism, and any
    'local' is probably a resident of Bar or Podgarica
    just here to make money out of the tourists
    for the season. There are real locals and people
    I met who live and were born in Virpazar, most
    seemed to see me as their bread and butter.

    Maybe I was jst spoilt with hospitality in Ulcinj
    and more used to the Montenego Albanians
    more friendly way.
    Not that anyone was outright rude or unpolite,
    just the general attitude.

    But I did meet a few individuals who were very helpful
    and offered some invaluable info that I'm sure not
    given so freely to any Tom, Dick and Harry.
    There was Wifi in one of the bars so one could sit
    outside and for those carrying a laptop catch up
    with emails etc.
    I had left my daughters laptop and Ipod Touch
    behind on purpose, but always good to know
    just in case.
    Beers were about €1.50 to €2 and turkish coffee €1,
    so unless you wanna splurge €15 to €20 on a big meal
    in some of the resto's round the square. Just sitting and
    chilling not a bad idea.
