Taking to Instagram to share her experience with her followers, Areesha Khan (aka @littlekhanswanderlust) shared a picture of herself in Birgu with a stunning Valletta backdrop: “Superrrr excited to share my first post from Malta! 💃 This little island was my favourite destination so far and I still wonder why did I take so long to finally explore it 😱 Needless to say, it’s a summer destination but the best time would be to visit it is between April-May or August-October. I’ve heard in peak summer season it gets badly crowded so try avoiding those months! So how many of you are already planning a trip to Malta in 2020?! 🤩” she wrote in the caption.

Areesha’s Instagram highlight reel is a memento of all her adventures in Malta. Amongst the many places she visited during her stay, Marsaxlokk was one of her favourites: “Loveddddd this fishing village! One Sundays they’ve got a huge market as well. But locals tell you to avoid coming here on Sundays since it’s so crowded,” she wrote. Areesha also mentions St Peter's Pool and suggests to her followers to combine a visit to the site with the trip to the fishing village.

Admittedly, the travel blogger needed some convincing to visit St John’s Co-Cathedral but was left blown away by its beauty when she eventually did: “I’ll be very honest, after visiting a gazillion churches I wasn’t sure if I wanted to pay 10 to enter St Johns. However literally everyone insisted that I NEED to visit it. And OMG. It was STUNNINGGGGGG!” she wrote, as she shared a vast collection of beautiful pictures gathered from her tour of the Co-Cathedral.

Areesha also spent countless hours walking around the old streets of Valletta and Mdina, as well as The Three Cities where she was left in awe of the door knobs, the quaint pedestrian alleyways, the stunning views, traditional architecture and the peace each city reverberated. She sums up her experience in Malta with just two short sentences: “Malta is a dream come true! Too much beauty at every corner,” she wrote.
