Abstract: Taking into consideration the tourism phenomenon in Albania, from few numbers of tourists in the past to large numbers of foreigners visiting the country and, thus, contributing to the improvement of the economy, this paper aims to investigate the diverse types of tourism offered to the foreigners. Therefore, a corpus of tourism travel guidebooks published in Albania in the English language used for the country`s promotion in the world was analyzed to throw light on what kind of tourism is promoted in the texts and how. The approach utilized here is corpus linguistics and it is both quantitative and qualitative. The results indicate that tourism is not only intended for the summer holidays, but it is offered in various forms. There are several choices provided to visitors such as coastal, green, historical, cultural, winter and adventure tourism. The diverse types of tourism presented through this data analysis led us to the belief and thought that this text is trying to attract future visitors of all ages and a range of personal interests. In other words, there is anything for anyone and, so, one is not restricted to visiting Albania only in the summer but all year round.
