The history

As a travel guide updater, I know how frustrating it is to find that information goes out of date very quickly and in a print version there’s nothing you can do about this until the next reprint. I’ve also tried and failed to find my way around using guide book maps – often too small to read even with glasses. Added to this, the pages get smudged, ripped and then fall out. Not to mention the heaviness of the guide weighing your bag down.

All this set me thinking about how to produce a guide that included the latest and correct information about a destination; that showed you how to get to everything clearly and simply; that stayed in pristine condition; and was at your fingertips weighing nothing. And so The 5 Best of Everything in Malaga was born.

Local knowledge – I live in Malaga and know the city inside out. All the listings (over 210) included in The 5 Best of Everything in Malaga have been tried and tested. And I venture on and off the beaten tourist track so you discover the well-known and the not so well-known sides to Malaga.
