Looking for some shopping with great prices? Why not try the shops by Te Ora (the clock) in the Dardania neighborhood? Most any taxi driver will know where you want to go if you say “Te Ora.” Walk in under the clock pictured above, and there are dress shops, an “H&M”, lots of kids clothing stores, a few butcher shops, and even a shop where you can buy large Albanian lace doilies–all at a fraction of what you would pay at Albi Mall.
Walking Directions: (close to Bill Clinton statue) Starting from U.S. Embassy Bravo gate, take a right to walk down the hill to the main road (Ahmet Krasniqi). When you get to the circle, keep to your right and walk on the overpass over the train tracks and take the first right (onto Tirana). At the first main road, take a left onto Garibaldi. Walk straight through the next intersection. When the road comes to a “T,” make a right and walk toward Mother Teresa Cathedral (on Xhorxh Bush). Right after you pass the big cathedral, take a right at that big intersection (onto Bulevardi Bill Klinton) to walk behind the back of the church. Cross the road before or when you see the Bill Clinton statue. Take a left after the Bill Clinton statue (onto Idris Gjilani). Walk back until you see the white clock; go under the clock to see the shops.
