5 things you should do on a rainy day in Malta

Whether’s it’s a spot of retail therapy or going to watch a movie, there are quite a few ways of how you can spend rainy days in Malta. Which one’s your favourite?

1. Go shopping

As temperatures continue to drop, a little bit of retail therapy is exactly what you need to raise those temperatures. Whether it’s just window shopping or a complete shopping haul, pay a visit to one of Malta’s many shopping centres will definitely help you pass the time this January.

2. Visit the National Aquarium

Escape Malta’s grey January skies and dive into a colourful undersea wonderland at the Malta National Aquarium in St. Paul’s Bay. While you’re at it, complete the outing with a meal at La Nave Bistro and secure a great outing for the entire family.

3. Book a spa day

Whether you want to go on an intimate date with your partner, book a pampering day with a family member or catch up with an old friend, a spa day is just what you need. A few hours of pampering in a delicate, professional environment will calm the nerves and leave you feeling 100% refreshed.

4. Go watch a movie

We know how it feels to have cinema taken away and now that it’s back in full force, we encourage you to appreciate it as much as possible. Grab a popcorn, some nachos and find a film which tickles your fancy and you’re in for the perfect Autumn-Winter outing.

5. Stay in

The easiest option of all and in this weather, the most enticing. Head on down to your nearest supermarket, grab a few fresh ingredients and cook a dish of your liking as you stay inside to play a few board games or watch a bit of Netflix: time well spent.

Miley Cyrus' 'Flowers' just became the fastest song to reach 100 million streams on Spotify

Miley Cyrus has started off 2023 with an absolute bang after her new track ‘Flowers’ became the fastest song in Spotify history to reach 100 million streams.

The track became a self-love and empowerment anthem from the first moment it hit the airwaves, with many fans calling the track the beginning of a redemption arc for the former Hannah Montana star.

‘Flowers’ is all about independence and post-breakup happiness, with the American singer-songwriter taking digs at ex-husband Liam Hemsworth on the day of his birthday.

The track interpolates Bruno Mars’ ‘When I Was Your Man’, a song previously dedicated to Cyrus by Hemsworth when they were together.

What do you think of ‘Flowers’?
