Tourists visiting spain can rent a car in Malaga airport and check in to the hotel before starting their exciting vacation here. We have done some research for you, and have listed down the 5 exciting things that you must do in Spain to soak in the essence of this beautiful country:
1. Attend a Flamenco Show
Of the various pictures that come to our mind when we think of Spain, Flamenco is always a part of the list. A traditional form of folk music, Flamenco is known to change a tense environment into a calm and relaxed space. It can be performed by a professional orchestra, some drunken gypsies at a Tapas bar or at a wedding! Flamenco music is accompanied by perfectly synchronized dancing, which cannot be missed when you are in Spain. Shows are organised in Madrid, Barcelona and Andalusian cities such as Seville, Granada and Malaga and each performance consists of vocals, guitar, hand-clapping and dancing.
2. Witness a Bullfight
While many animal rights activists will scorn at the mention of this activity in the list, bullfighting has been an integral part of Spanish history and continues to be a famous tourist attraction. Do some research before deciding which city are you going to see bullfighting in. While the activity has its origins in Rona and its spiritual threads from Sevilla, Madrid is the city with the maximum number of events and supporters today.
3. Go Skiing:
No trip to Spain can be complete before you test your hand-eye-foot coordination at skiing. If you are in Malaga, you are in proximity to the famous Sierra Nevada Ski Resorts that are known all over the world for their exciting offerings. Here, you can start your day by skiing in the mountains followed by lounging at the beach. This ski resort is highly rated and is one of the best in Europe, which makes it a must-visit place during your time in Spain.
4. Put on your dancing shoes in Ibiza
Many were not aware of the partying paradise that Ibiza is before Mike Posner’s famous song, “I took a pill in Ibiza”. If you love partying and dancing till your feet go numb, you have to attend the legendary parties at nightclubs in Ibiza. However, be prepared to spend more than you would for the club in your hometown because all the excitement does not come cheap here.
5. Attend La Tomatina
We know that this has been on your list before we mentioned it here. We would not be exaggerating if we say La Tomatina is one of the most exciting and interesting festivals in the world The party commences with a huge feast on Paella and is followed by thousands of people taking to the streets with tomatoes in hand the next morning. Indulge in some tomato-throwing till you hear the sound of the bottle rocket and head to a bar to wash up!
