The newspaper lists 52 different destinations worldwide that are worth paying a visit. Besides Málaga, the spanish destinations San Sebastian and Barcelona are also on the list.

The reason why Malaga has made it to this list, is the cultural boom that the city has gained with its many high-quality museums. They also observe that the entire province with places like Marbella is a popular destination for beach tourism.

They emphasize in particular that Málaga is an epicenter filled with culture for all, and that one should remember that it is the birthplace of Picasso and the city offers visitors a museum with his works. The newspaper stresses that one must also be aware that three significant new museums have opened recently. The most significant is the Pompidou Centre that is situated in a futuristic building close to the sea. They show a variety of artists such as Frida Kahlo and Marc Chagall.

The newspaper also reminds that there now are direct flights with Delta Air Lines from New York City to Malaga, and that then one can continue with the new high-speed trains that connects Malafa with Madrid and Barcelona.
