Malaga in The New York Times List of 53 Places to Go to in 2008

02/02/2008 - The New York Times

Malaga is ranked 45 in The New York Times’ list of 53 places to go to in 2008, the only Spanish city included this year.

Last December, The New York Times published its list of places and cities to go to in 2008. Although occupying a modest position, with Laos, Lisbon, Tunisia, Mauritius, Mid-Beach Miami, South-Beach Miami, Maldives, Death Valley, Courchevel and Libya in the top ten, Malaga is the only Spanish city to be included in the list this year. The city is ranked 45, higher than London, Vietnam, Las Vegas and even New York, bringing up the rear.

In the words of The New York Times: “The southern coast of Spain is not just about high-rise hotels and water-gulping golf courses. Next June, Delta Air Lines plans to inaugurate nonstop service to the Andalusian port city of Malaga — a major cultural center, with its impressive array of museums and monuments, including an 11th-century Moorish fortress. Delta will fly from Kennedy Airport to Malaga’s international airport, named after the city’s favorite son Pablo Picasso.”
