I'm off to Malta next week and the exchange rate against the pound is, in my view, very low- 0.58 LM - 1.00 GBP.
Could anyone advise me if things such as food, nightlife, excursions, souvenirs etc are expensive - or if we can get good value for money for our pound.
I was in Cyprus last year where the rate was 0.86 CYP - but things were cheap so u could get a lot for your pound - hope Malta's the same!!
Food in the restaurants are excellent value you can expect to pay around 16Ml for two main courses and a bottle of good wine. Drinks are cheaper there than in the UK. You will be better exchanging your money over there where you can expect 60.5 to the pound.
As for excursions well I suggest you read further down on this forum page the one titled 'try this' . As for nightlife you haven't mentioned for what age group or where you are staying. If your young and want to party all night then head for Paceville. Buggiba/Qawra is good but you have to know where to go. There are lots of bars and some of them appear never to close! but it will take some exploring to find the bars that suit you.
Remember though that in Malta you really do have to explore to find the treasures.
Hope you have a great time.
