A journalist and a photographer of this magazine will be staying in Malaga from today until next Sunday with the aim to discover the main monumental sites of this destination
A journalist and a photographer from the ‘Let’s go magazine’, Ryanair’s monthly publication, will be staying in Malaga as from today, right through till next Sunday with the objective of writing a six-page article in the issue of the following month of June.
This magazine is given out regularly on the 96 routes that the company currently operate, so it’s estimated that it reaches more than six million passengers every month. Amongst its content, ‘Let’s go magazine’ dedicates a large space to the main tourist destinations all over the world, as well as other articles on fashion and lifestyle.
For this occasion, the Tourist Board of Malaga’s Town Hall has organised a wide program of activities so that both the journalist and the photographer can thoroughly explore the city’s wide tourist offer and its main cultural resources.
This way, this familiarisation trip includes a visit to the Botanical Garden of ‘La Concepción’, the monumental complex of the Alcazaba, the Roman Theatre and the Gibralfaro Castle, the Cathedral, the Picasso Museum and the painter’s house of birth, the Carmen Thyssen Museum, the Glass Museum or the Motor Museum. On the other hand, the program also includes a bicycle route from the historical centre of Malaga to the beaches of Pedregalejo.
The Culture, Tourism & Sport councillor, Damian Caneda, has emphasised the importance of this type of reports so that Malaga’s tourist offer gets the chance to be seen in the main markets all around the world. “These press and familiarisation trips are proving an enormous efficiency to promote our destination, so we want to keep on investing in these type of publications that have a great outcome for us”, he pointed out.
According to the journalist in charge of the report, the magazine is particularly interested in highlighting Malaga’s potential as one of the most important destinations for cultural and gastronomic tourism in the Mediterranean. Consequently, apart from the visits to the main monuments of the city, the Tourist Board’s promotional experts have also scheduled a visit to three of the main gastronomic areas of our destination.
This way, in ‘Muelle 1’, the port’s new shopping and leisure centre, the journalist will have the chance to interview the well-known chef Jose Carlos Garcia. They will also get to discover some of the most popular restaurants in Malaga’s historical centre and will be able to taste our famous ‘pescaito’ (typical and traditional fish dish) in one of Pedregalejo’s ‘chiringuitos’ (beach bars).
Finally, the program also includes a work meeting with Gloria Noblezas, manager of the hotel Husa Guadalmedina, establishment that will be collaborating with this visit and where the invited journalists will be staying; and a visit to the Room Mate Larios hotel.
This familiarisation trip, included in this year’s action plan of the Tourist Board, also coincides with the celebration of the Malaga Spanish Film Festival, so the journalists will also be able to enjoy one of the cultural activities with more touristic and cultural projection in the city of Malaga.
