Nine Heritage Malta attractions have received the 2020 Travellers’ Choice Award
from Tripadvisor in recognition of their outstanding service and quality. The
results of this coveted award programme were based on the quality and quantity
of the millions of reviews, opinions and ratings collected on Tripadvisor in 2019,
prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Heritage Malta attractions which have received this prestigious award are
the megalithic temples of Ħaġar Qim and Ġgantija, the Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum, St
Paul’s Catacombs, Fort St Angelo and Fort St Elmo (including the National War
Museum), the National Museum of Archaeology, the Palace Armoury and Ta’
These awards form part of the ongoing effort of Tripadvisor, which is the world’s
largest travel platform, to support the recovery of the tourism and hospitality
industry following the difficulties experienced by the COVID-19 pandemic.
In Tripadvisor’s view, through this programme, travellers can benefit from the
real-life experiences of other people so that they can plan the perfect trip which
meets their needs, budget and style. Winners of the Travellers’ Choice Awards
consistently earn great reviews from travellers and are ranked within the top 10%
of the sites on Tripadvisor.
“When considering how tough this year has been to our industry, such news
encourages us to strive harder in order to keep ensuring the best service to our
visitors. We’re passionate about our cultural heritage and these awards reflect
our aim to excel in what we do,” said Heritage Malta CEO, Noel Zammit.
