In a recent post, we provided two out of four Malta blogs to check out before travelling to Malta. In this post, we will be looking at the remaining two: Visit Malta and Lovin Malta.
The Visit Malta website is the perfect go-to-website for the typical tourist approach. It will give you A-Z information about everything that goes on around Malta.
You are presented with a never ending and ever growing list of things to do and see, festivals and events to attend, Museums and Galleries to visit, archaeological sites to explore and many more.
It also keeps you updated on any upcoming events and you can also check the calendar for specific dates.
To make things even easier and more convenient for its users, it has a Mobile Apps page where it lists the different mobile applications perfect for when you are outdoors and need to check something quick.
Such applications include:
- VISITMALTA DESTINATION GUIDE, a guide consisting of an interactive map and general information, facts, activities, and an updated calendar of events;
- MALTA CULTURE GUIDE to help you locate and explore the best Maltese cultural highlights; and
- NEXT GOZO FERRY, a free travel app for both locals and foreigners wanting to visit the island showing the ferry schedule for commuters between Malta and Gozo.
Last and not least, the website also helps you plan out your holiday by guiding you every step of the way, from which airline to choose, to how to get around on the island, and suggests local agents and tourist guides that can help you with planning.
Lovin Malta is a fun and cheeky blog that keeps you on your feet. You constantly want to check it out each time you’re notified that a new article has been posted.
The posts are simple and interesting, yet funny and entertaining at the same time, often taking jibes at Maltese habits, traditions and way of life.
The site delves into Maltese lifestyle, food and drink, announcements, opinion, design, technology and all sorts of news but it also enjoys taking jibes at various daily issues for example Maltese people using English and Italian in the same sentence.
There is also a page dedicated to different restaurants in Malta that can be searched according to location.
The site’s exceptional popularity is undoubtedly due to its accurate description of a typical day in the life of Maltese people. It speaks volumes on the lifestyle and character of the Maltese people.
A lot of articles talk about contemporary trends as well as bring back nostalgic moments from the past, to which both adolescents and adults can relate.
Therefore, it comes as no surprise that the blog is extremely popular with the Maltese public as it not only looks closely at Maltese customs and traditions, but also talks about common and hilarious everyday occurrences.
This kind of blog will surely introduce you to the multifaceted personality of the Maltese people.
Maltese people are fun, loud and loving people bursting with energy, and who have a great sense of humour.
Reading through the articles will help show you what Maltese people are all about, and perhaps, it could also serve as a guide on how to become a Malteser yourself.
Lovin Malta provides just that bit of information that you are unlikely to find anywhere else. Within minutes of reading their posts and watching their videos, you will become immersed into the world of Maltese life.
