Think we called in there too (more than likely if we were on a trip as it's probably the 'carpet factory' of Malta ;) ) Is that where you can see the glass blowers?

Yes that is where the glass blowers and other crafts such as Filigree are made, I go for the Aviation Museum http://maltaviationmuseum.com/

There is also a Vineyard & Winery located there that you can go on a guided tour of, Meridiana Wine Estate :cheers
The National Stadium is also located there perhaps not just as impressive as Camp Nou in Barcelona :D http://www.mfa.com.mt/en/mfa-facilities/facilities/1/the-national-stadium.htm

The touts have to have their Timeshare ID visibly displayed otherwise they can be fined.... Just look out for a white rectangular laminated card (about 3.5" by 2.5") usually clipped to their t-shirt or hung around their neck.

When we tell them we live in Cyprus and not UK they're usually happy enough to leave us alone. But, if they're near to the end of the month and need to hit they're bonus target they have often asked if would just go in and tell them we live in UK and go along with it until the book with all the accommodations and destinations are produced. At that state, they will get paid for our visit.

They also pay us in advance of going into the timeshare meeting - that can be 50 EUR or sometimes even 80 EUR, depending which timeshare unit they want you to visit.

So, if you're at a loose end or the weather is a bit iffy.....
