We are travelling to Malta in a couple of weeks and this will be our second visit. Last time we loved the quirky old yellow buses and the fares were really cheap! Has anyone got a comparison with how they are now? Are the fares still very reasonable? Are the services much the same? We will be in Bugibba again, which has its own bus station, and not all journeys went-through Valletta. Is that much the same also? Many thanks!
I have often thought of going to Malta during the winter for more than 2 weeks, 2 months would be a dream.
So my question is about where to stay, How would I go about finding a flat to rent that would not cost the earth ?
Thanks for any help.

Does anyone know how much the ferry is one way to Sicily ? I have been on VIrtu ferries website and cannot imagine the price really is 90-100 euro for a one way 60 mile trip? Or am I wrong ?
Are there any beaches or places to swim and sunbathe in Marsaxlokk?
I am going to Malta in May and would like to have a better idea about the crowd in Malta in May as I haven't booked a hotel yet and haven't decided in which part of the island to stay. In summer I would probably avoid to stay and sleep in St Julians and Peaceville but maybe at this time of the year is not so crowded and more bearable at nights to sleep in. Would love to be a walk from the main pubs, bars & nightlife scene though! Have to celebrate my birthday in there!!! Where can i have a nice party with nice but not too young people? I am turning 39 this year!! ;-)
I am excited to spend my 50th birthday in the country of my birth during the last week of May. My boyfriend is kindly tagging along but he is a keen yachtsman and I would like to see if we can charter a sailing yacht for a day.
Does anyone know of a local company or private rental?
Can anyone tell me is there a ferry operating between Valletta and Vittoriosa?
Ideally could you let me know where in Valletta the ferry goes from,times and price.
Hello, My Boyfriend and I are going to Mellieha for a 2 and a half days. I would like a day out seeing places and then a day on the beach/by the pool. Can you recommend places easy to get to by public transport that are worth a visit? Also, what sort of clothing should we pack. We're from the UK so i'm expecting it will feel fairly warm but i've read the wind is usually strong... does this make it cold or will we be able to sunbathe for a day? Thanks :)
looking for ideas for reception in mellihea not too expensive

Hi. This is pretty awkward to admit, but I have managed to go broke at Malta. I`m on vacation here,and staying at my hotel until the 26th. I have no money left, including no air ticket or food/drinks etc. I get payed on the 30th, and will then be able to pay for everything. But what canI do until then? Is there any pawn shops located in Malta? The closer to Sliema the better. Anywhere a foreigner can get a loan,given he can give something in security? I`m from norway,so I got a norwegian passport,which im ready to put up for security if possible. Appriciate any suggestion!

Hi Everyone We're in Malta for one afternoon in September. We're interested in the above excursion but so far have found only one VT entry about the sites. Anyone been to the Hypogeum and the Tarxien temples? We do rather like our burial chambers and catacombs! The Paris Catacombs were great! The Vatican ones were interesting and the Alexander ones were far too crowded. How about these? What are the restrictions on photography? Thanks.
Defeated by technology yet again I have now put the picture of my mystery plant on my personal page entitled mystery plants. We found it while walking through the sand dunes on Gozo. Any ideas?
I have recently been walking in Malta and Gozo and we found a plant that no one could name (see my personal page mystery plants) - any ideas? it could be the seed pod of the sea daffodil. Thanks
We're limited as to when we can go to Malta - summer or the Easter holidays. We're told that summer would be too hot and humid for us Brits. So we'd settled on Easter next year, which comes, unfortunately, rather early (Easter Monday = April 1st), resulting in being there during the first week or so of April. Guide books suggest April averages only 16-18 degrees C, so the first week could be even lower than that - hardly sunbathing weather. Do we give up and go somewhere else, or have I misunderstood? All help appreciated! Steve

Hello Everyone, Would like some honest advice on a family trip for 2 weeks in Malta in July 2013. 1) Is two weeks too long to spend on Malta and Gozo with the kids ages 14, 10 and 8? We will go to beach and also do cultural things and excursions. 2) I am told the beaches are not really that nice on Malta as they are not sandy...more rocky and limestones...is that true? 3) Is it advisable to rent an apartment for 10 days in Malta and 3 or 4 days in Gozo rather than stay at a hotel (because we would need 2 rooms at a hotel which raises costs substantially)? 4 Is Malta a fun destination with kids? 5) Is malta in July as beautiful as the pictures shown on the internet with blue skies and beautiful views, and shallow turquoise waters? Thanks for your help.
