There are two types of travellers: those who prefer to improvise and those who enjoy planning their trip. Organising what we are going to do in the new city can be the beginning of our holidays. For example, mapping out the route we are going to follow, looking for the most typical bars to eat in, locating the most impressive monuments, etc. However, we may not have had time to gather this information beforehand and this is the moment when tourist offices come into play. They are the best way to find out first-hand what we should not miss when we could not do our own research.
Malaga is the well-known Costa del Sol of Andalusia, a destination that has a lot to offer. Below, we will look at the four information points located in the heart of the tourist area:
