But if you're looking for a guide for transportation and lodging, you'll have to look elsewhere. It has a sentence on about 3 hotels per region. But I think that's probably how it is meant to be used, to give details to go with your other book.
My main objection to its use is that the print is too small throughout for easy accessibility even though I have good, corrected sight. The tiny print on portions of maps in the guidebook is outrageously small, requiring at least a 2x magnifying glass (yes, I used one).
The large scale map is far too large scale, requiring a good size table or floor to see all of one side. Because much of the islands are very sparsely occupied with towns and villages and because some large scale is necessary for the streets of the two largest communities, different scales would be far more appropriate than the one scale or all. This map has a US price of $16.99, certainly not what the publisher of the guide book paid, but this map with its flimsy paper was far overpriced whatever was paid
Also, I am not so sure of the accuracy of the editing, as the last words before the index do not make a complete sentence. Was anything of importance omitted? Are there other editing problems of which the reader is unaware.
Finally, I had difficulty locating the international airport on the map. I had to search the guidebook for more time than I wished to spend in order to determine that Luqa, the site of it (which I knew), was located in the "South" geography of the guidebook. I then had to search that portion of the map to find the airport. A far better way would be for the guide book to have a small scale map along side its description of Luga , which shows the location of that miniscule community in relation to Tas-Sliema and Valetta, the two largest communities into which almost all tourists have as destinations.
