Malta

I lived on the sunny rock called Malta for around 1.5 years and I regularly get asked for tips and recommendations when it comes to people visiting the island. So below is my short guide to the island and what I recommend.

Other Recommendations

- Avoid using the White Taxi’s where possible, use ecabs as they charge fair prices and usually have good service -  http://ecabs.com.mt/

- Get a bus card for the duraction of your visit. When I lived in Malta all buses go to and from Valletta and this usually serves as a good base - https://www.publictransport.com.mt/en/bus-card-and-ticketing
