According to the article, and Buġibba, "most tourists won't even notice they crossed the border of one town and entered another." We generally don't differentiate along administrative divisions here. I would suggest re-merging the two articles, and keeping Qawra as a redirect. @Piotrus: your thoughts? ARR8 (talk | contribs) 15:26, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

While I considered some sort of larger area article, I am not even sure how to title it and where to draw the borders, if you look at the map each town bleeds to the next one. Sure, Qawra and Bugibba are effectively one town from the tourist perspective, but so is the St. Paul's Bay in the east - I didn't realize we were in three towns until I came home and started updating wikivoyage :) And I haven't walked far enough in that region to be sure that the towns further east/south/west are separate enough, so again, how are we supposed to write about this? I haven't found a region name on Wikipedia that would work. Separate towns are separate towns (and this is how Wikipedia/wikidata/commons divide such regions too). I think making it clear people can easily walk into another one in the right sections s the best. --Piotrus (talk) 17:29, 16 January 2019 (UTC)
Suggest merging article into St. Paul's Bay, (well moving one and merging the other) which would be the whole area administers by the town which according to w:St. Paul's Bay includes Burmarrad, Wardija, Qawra, Buġibba, Xemxija, and San Martin, as well as part of Bidnija and Mistra, form part of St. Paul's Bay Local Council. --Traveler100 (talk) 18:07, 16 January 2019 (UTC)
I considered that, but the sources for that 'area' are pretty slim. Also I don't know much about those other towns so the new article will be pretty incomplete. --Piotrus (talk) 20:17, 16 January 2019 (UTC)
That seems fine to me. Someone else can come along and add the missing information later. I'd support Traveler100's proposal. ARR8 (talk | contribs) 16:09, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
