Is My Travel Plan to Spain Available?

Hi, everyone!

I have 8 days next month and want to spend a vacation from China to Spain.

Here is my general itinerary:

Day 1: Arrive in Madrid, take the train to Malaga

Day 2: Malaga

Day 3, 4: Seville

Day 5: Granada, and back to Barcelona at night

Day 6: Barcelona

Day 7: Back to Madrid

Day 8: Fly back

Could I do this? Is the time too compact?

I've got some useful information from webisites: http://www.travelguidesdirectory.com

http://www.allmadrid.com

http://www.gobarcelona.biz/]Barcelona

and so on. But still have detail pazzles. In addition, do you have any advices for accommodation?

Any advice is appreciated.

Seems rather rushed, but I am of the belief that something is something as the Spanish say. If you want to see some superficially, that is better than not seeing it at all.

I would drop Malaga and give yourself more time to get to Granada.

Is it possible to fly into Madrid and out of Barcelona? It may cost a little extra but certainly more practical.

I would skip Barcelona on this trip & stick to Madrid & Andalucia.

My ideas are -

Day 1 -Arrive in Madrid, take the AVE, the high speed train to Sevilla.

Days 2 & 3 - Sevilla

Day 4 - To Malaga by train or bus

Day 5 - To Granada by bus

Days 6 - 8 - Back to Madrid by bus train or plane.

Part of the beauty of Spain is the relaxed way of life, so take your time & enjoy.

I do like Senoraylan's idea, but I understand you are coming a long way so you want to get in as much as possible. If you really want Malaga, I would drop Barcelona. Also, Malaga City is compact enough so it's easy to see all you want in that time. Picasso museum, the Alcazaba, pedestrian historic center and the paradise of whom?

Please educate me. Who is Vicente....etc.?

Vicente Aleixandre Merlo was born in Seville in 1898 and died in Madrid in 1984. He is one of the best spanish Poets of all times and won the Nobel Prize twice in 1933 and 1977.

He sas born in Seville, but his during his childhood lived in Malaga.

Hope to have helped.

Jose.
