Malta report

Jump to last reply

Since the people on this site were so helpful in my trip preparation, I decided to spend a few minutes to make my own contribution. Thank you to everybody who helped along the way!

I spent two weeks in Malta in July and had a fantastic holiday.
Some highlights included:
a) The Maltese people - very friendly and laid-back - always happy to help
b) The Hotel Kempinski San Lawrenz on Gozo - we were grossly overcharged by our tour operator but hell, it was still a great hotel
c) Going for evening passiggiata along the Sliema promenade - a great way to enjoy local colour on hot summer nights
d) the festas!!! Super dangerous but dazzling fireworks and fun street parties
e) the Hypogeum - book the tickets in advance, it's worth it
f) the Armoury and Palace Rooms at the Grandmaster's Palace - Malta is a great destination for History buffs

Again, I loved Malta, but after reading some of the other postings on this country, I have to say that research is a good idea, coupled with an open mind. Yes, Malta is scorching hot in the summer, o.k., not every restaurant is worthy of a Michelin star, but in my opinion, the friendly people and History make Malta a fascinating place to visit.
