An Essential Guide to Malaga, Spain, Malaga, Spain (B)

Malaga is a vibrant city acted in the South of Spain in the province of Andalucia. The birthplace of Pablo Picasso, you can enjoy culture, vibrant cafes and restaurants, and lush beaches. The city is an excellent base to travel to smaller towns in the Region. Over the past few years, the city has been becoming more hip and modern and is now home to lots of expats.

I have to be honest when I first visited Malaga, I wasn’t that impressed but the more time I have spent there, the more I have grown quite fond of it. So I would love to share with you some of the best things to do there in this essential guide:

Fly into Malaga airport, a busy airport that connects the south of Spain to most of Europe and a couple of locations in North America.From the airport, the fastest way to reach the city centre is to take the train which takes approximately 9 minutes and costs as little as 1.20€.You could also take a bus to the city centre which departs frequently and costs around 3€ but takes around 30 minutes. If you are not staying in Malaga there are buses departing from the airport to cities such as Granada, Seville and Almeria. You can connect to other major Spanish Cities from Maria Zambrano Train Station which will take you to other cities like Cordoba, Madrid and Barcelona. There are even a few international departures from here too. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
