Most helpful critical review

We spent 5 days in Malta and for such a small island this guide was really disappointing. At first we were frustrated with how little detail the book had in then we found it to be hugely inaccurate. The guide described Rabat as an 'untidy town' which couldn't have been further from the truth. Yes, it's not as picturesque as Mdina but definitely worth a visit if you're in the area. Also, no mention of the Aviation Museum, a five minute walk from the Ta' Qali Craft Village and 100 times more interesting and definitely in need of more support from tourists. There was also no mention of the noon cannon salute at the Upper Barrakka Gardens, also a must see. Very disappointing, would not recommend this book; you're better off doing a half an hour web browse and saving yourself a few £s.
