According to a CNN post Albania is one of the top travel destinations for this year. This doesn’t as a surprise to me because the fact that Albania has always been a toursist destination but people did not recognize it. Why ? Because its located right next to Italy and Greece and every one is so obsessed with Italy & Greece and forget that are other countries just as good that share the same panoramic views or adriatic sea.
However, I am pretty phsyced that Albania is the sixth on the list for this year.
Here is the post from CNN :
” The top pick on Lonely Planet’s list of top 10 countries for 2011 may be a surprise for many people, but Albania gives travelers a taste of the Mediterranean without the crowds and the prices, Reid said.
The real rising destination is Gjirokastra, a city whose historic center is a UNESCO World Heritage site, he added.
“It’s this cobbled town with Ottoman-era mansions,” Reid said. “It’s a very atmospheric place that has a lot of history.”
With picturesque beaches, good food and a number of heritage sites, Albania won’t be off the beaten track for much longer, Lonely Planet says in its review. ”
Enjoy everyone our country has made it to the top 10…URRAAAAA :)
