I ended up staying in Malta for 8 nights because I was waiting for a cheap flight out of the country. That was definitely too long and I’d recommend Malta for 4 nights especially if you’re actively moving exploring the country.

Malta is very close to Italy which is why you’ll see a lot of Italian restaurant in Malta. Luckily for me, I love Italian food and especially risotto.
As you already know, Cluj-Napoca is the 2nd biggest city in Romania. One of their most notable destinations is Salina Turda, an underground salt mine that was converted into a theme park!
I’m a big fan of getting free stuff. When traveling through airports, free airport lounge access is always amazing since they have wifi, comfy seats, drinks and food. Lounge access can be attained with Priority Pass.
Ok, it was close to free! It was in the free “area code”. I used 44,000 Radisson Rewards hotel points to stay at the Radisson Blu Malta Golden Sands rather than paying the $300+/night the hotel was retailing for. Plus, I got an upgraded room!
While in Malta, be sure to block out a few hours to check out the Mdina Gate. It’s another fortress on Malta!
There are two popular blue lagoons in the world. The most popular one is in Iceland and it’s a hot spring. The second (less known) location is in Malta.
While in Malta for 8 days, I was looking for things to do and found that there were walking tours of various parts of the country, Valletta being the most popular.
“How to get around Malta” should be the first question you ask when you arrive. The roads are narrow, buses are late, taxis are not too bad and Uber is not available.
