What to do in May in Tirana? Travel Locally, Save tourism

Tirana is still isolated due to Covid19, since the majority of infected cases are registered in the capital of Albania. But we are opening slowly, starting from shops, other businesses, and the city seems to be going back to normality. Yet, the only international airport remains closed,  and so are and the land borders.

The government decided to start opening the border with Greece and with neighbor countries, since all Balkans countries had low mortality from coronavirus. The decision will be made on 11 May.

From now, people are allowed to go out and work from 5 AM to 17.30 PM, each day. The businesses  that are aloud to be open can start working in these hours. The school will be open in 18 May partially, while the bars and restaurants are the last businesses to  open, at least in Tirana. Probably the restaurants and bars will be open in June.

Tourism is the most affected industry from Covid19, since people are isolated. What Ministry of Tourism and tourism organizations are suggesting this period is to target domestic tourism in the country, and invite locals to travel in different destinations within the country .The neighbor borders will be open during the summer, the people from Balkans could be the foreign visitors in Albania during this year.
