Malta is like a third world Arab country. It has the worst roads and sidewalks in Europe.
The Maltese are only nice when they are making money from you. I was assaulted and robbed
in Buggiba, with no help from the police. They do not report most of thier crime. I recommed coming with 9 22 or 38 euros only, its the Mideast, With Mideast Arab mentality. A better Med trip is Croatia.
What Big180 wrote about our beautiful Malta and about us Maltese is simply NOT TRUE. Shame on you for writing these lies. We are a friendly nation - has been like this for centuries. We are hard working, kind and honest people. We are members of the European Union and almost everyone speaks English. I ask all people who read this page to simply vist this website: www.visitmalta.com and judge for themselves if Malta is like big180 has described it. If Malta was so bad - why do we have 1.2 Million people tourists every year? 1.2 million is a lot when considering that our island is only 26 x 15 miles, and we are ony 400,000. They come because our country has a lot to offer - Culture -Sun - Beautiful Sea, and Excellent Food. Malta is a place where you really feel that you are welcome and at home.
This is the truth about Malta and nothing else. Many people have already confirmed what I just wrote in their replies to Big180's post.
Come and visit us and you will see that what I write is true.

Malta is the worst country in Europe full stop
Maltese are friendly only coz interested of robbing money from tourists
Hotels are almost all dated , stinky and dirty
Sea is polluted , you can see all sort of crap floating , almost no beaches , mostly rocky patches
Food is ok if u like burgers,pizza and pasta...nothing special though
Nightlife is only in an area called paceville...good if u like binge drinking and you are aged 14-20
Outside st.julians/sliema is like stepping back in time...houses,roads,streets are so old and bad that you almost feel in 1920!
Ah,and the stink of pig S*$# takes your breath away ever since arriving at the airport
In regards to culture...only the hypogeum in Paola is worth a visit...the rest is badly conserved in a true maltese style!!
