Hi,
I really like the layout of the site.
the top logo - I think it moves a little too fast :-)

colors are nice but the orange links are blending with the background and I can hardly see them...

Howzit dorian ...
I really like your site.

I would look at maybe changing the title of "products" to "tours" or something like that (a little more descriptive)

Then on your "contact us" page I would suggest putting in a back button, because once I have clicked on one of the subtopics ... namely "Office location" or "FAQ and comments" i can't go back to view your map without having to re-click on about us, and some internet noobs won't know what to do.

The "Tell this to a friend" and "bookmark" link are a bit hidden to me ... I didn't see them at first ...

I then checked your page with the w3c markup validator and found 22 errors in the HTML http://validator.w3.org/

one thing that bothers me a little bit is the continuous scrolling of that top part of the page ... It gets a bit too much after a while ... maybe you can make it loop for like 30seconds or so and then just change the image every now and hen ... Just a suggestion.

That text "BOOK NOW", is that supposed to be a link or just text? It looks kinda like a link to me, it just doesn't really fit in with the rest of the page ... I think it's just the positioning or the font size or something ... not sure.

But a good job sofar ...

go to http://validator.w3.org and then you type in your web address, and then it shows you all the errors and in which lines of the coding they are ...

I Like your site very much Dorian!

Very fast to load for a flash site, congratulations!

I have just a few small notes really:
- in products the red text is a bit hard on the eye, try black one, as everywhere else
- the page titles are not clearly visible, I would make them more prominent
- there's no notation which is your currently selected menu item, also would be nice to have some rollover effect for the menu items
- might want to correct broshures > brochures
- the boomark link did not work with me..maybe you haven't made it work yet?

But in all, congratulations for this site! Just hope you have an easy way to update it, it is very important for a tourist agency (as I understood your company is) to keep its website content up to date..

Overall your site looks good. There were a few problems though:

1. I was only able to scroll on the outside of your pages, which gets very annoying.

2. No DOCTYPE found!

3. 23 browser errors, which can be viewed here: http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.destinationalbania.com%2F

thank you all for you posting
now i'm in macedonia but i will fix them soon
i'll fix the text as soon as i go to albania
for hoosier_buddy i know about the 23 errors but i dont know how to fix them
i go to macromedia dreamweaver start a new html insert the flash change the title save and upload
i dont know html coding so i do them all in designer mode
i dont understand chiara(she said i hope you have an easy way to update it)
does she mean that i should place outside the swf my text
i place nearly all my pictures outside the swf file
i have another question:do you like the scrolling text?i mean that it comes from nowhere.do you think it is better to ad a gradient like in one moment the text's alpha that is coming is 0 then 10 ,20 and so on.do you think it is better this way?

ps:my english is not good.if you didn't understand what i sad just say you didn't?
another question:
do you know any way how to improve seo in flash web sites?
thanks again for your posting!

Your flash animation is taking to long to load.

A website that is created with straight html ranks higher in the major search engines. For SEO purposes I will suggest to make it as simple as possible and with straight HTML.

Just my opinion.

I agree with the banner at the top moving too fast, but other than that, I think everything looks great. Your menu system is quite easy to navigate, the colors are easy on the eyes, and you have some wonderful content. The only other suggestion I have is to perhaps make the viewing area larger for the videos. Nice site!
