You are proving my point. How do you know what Albania is like if you've never been there?

I personally would not wanna spend my vacation in the same place over and over again. Albania can be seen as an alternative, a place not many people have been to or know much about. It's a country filled with stunning natural beauty, historical sites, a unique culture and hospitable people. This is the impression most people have when they visit the country.

Then again, I'm not here to try to convince you to go there. To be fair, I could care less.

Do you know that we have thousands of serbian tourists visit our beaches in the summer? Hard to believe right?
I haven't heard of a single instance where they felt unsafe, threatened or looked upon negatively by the locals. I have never heard of tourists that visit the country say that albanians are violent and prejudiced towards foreigners.

Not many I think, since it's quite a drive all the way from western Europe to Albania.

I don't see what makes beaches in France and Spain superior to those in Albania
I would argue quite the opposite.

U guy ..have too much strange things in your head.If u want to be hated..then people hate u!!..Never happened this kind of incidents in Albania(even with Serbs..last year were more than 30.000 Serbs that visited Albania).These "too many nations" that u said above.. are slavs..and if slavs have something against Albanians...then,that is your problem!!

You know, I know, but the average German/Dutchmen/Swedish doesn't know that. They don't even know what it looks like in the first place.

Now Bulgaria doesn“t have problems with these nations and I don“t have any problems with Albanians, if they don“t do bad stuff to me or do bad things in general like beating people up etc. But you should know that many Bulgarians are negative to many nations, including the Roma population in their country aswell, well the Roma nation should be a bit more sozial but I can“t accept that Bulgarians are so much against them. Also Bulgarians are very much against Albanians, not me, but I am telling you about the people I know in Bulgaria. you shoulnd“t care what most Bulgarians say, they are some of the most patriotic nations I know, I just expressed my opinion about visiting Bulgaria but that“s also because I heart stories that it was very dangerous going through Albania and people steal things and so on. If it“s really like that, it is bad. But if it has changed and Albania is now as save as any other country in the Balkans, it“s fine.

WTF are you talking about? Who are those 'many nations' Albanians 'have something against'? Who are those people that say 'Albanians are very violent'? That's some pretty deep prejudice right there.

It is a realistic video with generally positive things but also highlighting some of its problems.

7T overrates the beaches in Albania also, from durres and northwards the coastline is not impressive at all, actually i would never recommend a person to visit Durres for a holiday but from Durres southwards is another story, where the beauty is hidden.

Same goes for other countries as well. Not all of France's coastline offers great beaches. Some parts are pretty average.
When you say that you don't recommend Durrės to anyone that shows how much you actually know about our coastline. For your information, there's a total of over 40km of coastline in that district. The best beach is located north of it in Lalėzi Bay where foreign investors are building luxury resorts as we speak. Southwards, you have Plepat bordering Golem. That's a pretty good quality beach except for all the construction activity.
