Where are you going on holiday?


Yeah I mean, personally I’m not a huge fan of the Costa Brava. It’s totally individual of course, I just find there’s so many damn chavs in Spain nowadays especially places like Benidorm and Fuengirola (although that’s Costa del Sol).

If I were you I’d look into Malta, Greece (hmm, maybe not Greece on second thoughts if you want to escape tacky British tourists) Portugal or Croatia.

Malta’s super underrated, with a fun nightlife and lots of ancient, medieval, and WWII history.


Thanks brah.

Not overly fussed about the people there as long its a nice place, cheap and half decent night life (not tacky like Magaluf). Found a week break there for 350.


Fair, Malta would sound like it’s right up your alley. Cracking night out in Paceville, which is right next to Sliema and St. Julians where it all goes down.

Or Croatia as well (check out Hvar, Split or Dubrovnik - or all three as my friends and I did when we were there for a week).


Costa Brava looks good from what i remember when i was child. Just too loud during the night.


Going to Malta end of June. What should I see @Cristo ? Staying in Gozo btw.


Going to Crete in 3 weeks! Can’t wait.


How long are you there for?

Gozo is tiny and can be done in a day trip to be honest, but it’s perfect if you’re going just to lounge by the pool/beach and chill out.

Malta is only 20-30 minutes away by ferry (the following are all on Malta).

Sliema, St. Julians and Valletta are the key urban areas with the best restaurants, bars and clubs (Paceville is the area for the nightlife and technically in St. Julians). Valletta is incredible for it’s architecture and history. Check out Portomaso for some really nice, high end (but pricey restaurants). IMO one of the best restaurants in the entire country is Ta’Xbiex Waterpolo Club (and it’s very reasonably priced for how good it is) - the Frito Misto starter is superb. It’s perfect for lunch or dinner. D’Office in Valletta is where I always used to go eat lunch when I was there as well. Reasonably priced excellent traditional Maltese/Italian cuisine in a really nice homey atmosphere.

Check out Rivareno in St. Julians for ice cream. It’s some of the best out there, simply amazing.

The promenade from the top of Sliema (Tigne Point - that’s also where most of the shopping is) that goes all the way along to St. Julian’s/Sliema is an amazing walk with really lovely seaviews and nice restaurants. Cafe Il-Gabbana is along the promenade and offers some lovely food and drinks for a little of a respite

Marsaxlokk and Marsascala are fun little traditional Maltese fishing towns worth visiting for the seafood but there’s really not an awful lot there; something to see though.

Mdina is definitely worth seeing. It’s the old capital and like Valletta has these huge, ancient walls and fortifications which are super cool to see. Nice views of the surrounding countryside up there as well. Valletta and Mdina are famous for their fortifications because they’re so well-preserved that loads of movies like Gladiator, Troy and Kingdom of Heaven were filmed there to make use of those walls.

You’ll have a great time and the weather will be amazing for you.


Awesome, thanks for the tips. Will definitely check the ice cream in Rivareno! :smiley: :+1:

We’ll stay for 5 nights. Is the island well connected by public transport or do we need to hire a car to switch between the different towns? I think we’ll spend 3 days exploring the restaurants and culture and another 2 days to lounge on the beaches in Gozo (Ramla is at a walking distance and we will take the ferry to the Blue Lagoon as it looks really nice, hopefully not too packed).


Cristo have you ever considered a career as a travel agent? :wink:


Asturias, northern rural area in Spain for a couple of days. Heard they have some nice hiking spots.



No seriously. We have a friend living there and he wants to show us the sights which i imagine will be mostly statutes of Delia Smith. :smile:


Protaras Cyprus…Sunrise beach/fig tree bay


Busses are dirt cheap, come often and connect the island.

They’re great to get around Sliema, St. Julians and Valletta and connect to each other but any further distances than that and you’re looking at at least 45-60 minutes travel if not more in some cases.

I used to get around with busses a lot though.

Cars are a fucking nightmare on Malta because traffic is horrific and there’s barely any parking.

The island is 15 x 26 miles wide, with a population of 300,000 but 400,000 cars haha

I’d stick to busses and taxis really if I were you but it might have gotten better with cars in the 2 years I’ve been gone.

Taxis aren’t too expensive either, and I’ve got the number of a really good private driver from England who specialises in taking people around for decent money as well.

@Calum Hahaha god no thanks, I just lived in Malta for 2 years and spent a lot of time eating and drinking haha


Great tips Cristo, much appreciated.


Cristo is literally our own trip advisor :cristo:


Oh I forgot to say where I’m going.

I’m off to Sorrento for 5 days in June :per:


Cádiz, Amsterdam/The Hague, Bordeaux, Mallorca, Portugal.

No requirement to make a trip to yankilandia= veranasooo


Going to Seville again this summer. I just fucking loved it last year. @AbouCuellar



I’m going to Florence in mid July. Any recommendations of what to see and what local cuisine to order? @Luca_from_Italy
