MALDIVIAN HOLIDAYSCustom Tour
- Two Way
Malé is the capital and most populous city in the Republic of Maldives. Maldives, bundles of islands, the perfect tropical heaven with the sunny side of life, has a lot to offer. Apart from the white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters in the resorts and local islands, the city life in the Maldives is going to be amazing and is only possible in the Maldives Capital. With tall buildings, international cuisine restaurants and numerous shops with a wide variety of products, Maldives capital is your fix to the shopping thrill and food cravings, after or before your dreamy tropical getaway. The capital of Maldives is 100% different from the local islands of the Maldives, few greens and more buildings with a hectic environment, just like a city. There is an extensive list of attractions in Male, including the Republic Square, Sultan Park, The National Museum and a Tsunami Memorial. The best time to visit Male is considered to be the dry season between December and April. There is plenty of sunshine along with clear skies, and this is when one would experience the maximum amount of rush at Male tourist places.
Ans: Legally, if you're 18 and not a Muslim, you can buy and drink alcohol. However since the Maldives are an Islamic nation, alcohol is effectively banned for the local population. However, nearly all resorts and liveaboard boats are licensed to serve alcohol, usually with a steep markup.
Ans: The Maldivian Rufiyaa is the national currency, however US Dollars are used on most resorts.
Ans: The Maldives is made up of more than 1000 coral islands, 80% of which rise less than 1 metre above sea level. Only 200 Maldivian islands are inhabited, and nearly 100 of these have been developed as luxury tourist resorts.
Ans: Most of the resorts in the Maldives are on private islands. Dress codes tend to be relaxed—tropical resort wear is appropriate. If you do plan to visit a locally inhabited island, it is recommended that you dress modestly to respect the laws of the country.
Ans: November through April is the best month to visit the Maldives considering the heavy monsoon showers have petered out leaving a few occasional spells to come down at any time of the day. The sun is warm, not scorching and the temperature hovers between 27 and 29 degree Celsius. The waters are warm and perfect for a swim. The conditions are also ideal for snorkelling and scuba diving with the oceanic currents flowing in from the northeast making the waters gin-clear to spot rays and shoals of reef fish.
