The Maldives Local Market

The best part about shopping in the Maldives is experiencing the local shopping scene. The traditional side of this country is just as alluring as the soothing coastlines that this destination is so famously known for. If you are keen on getting an authentic dose of Maldivian shopping, visit the Maldives local Market. This is one massive market that is set up on the streets of the northern waterfront in Male. Locally it is known as Bazaar and is buzzing with vendors selling all kinds of items that appeal to the foreigners as it does to the locals. If you are looking for a local favorite, this 'bazaar' is perfect as there are plenty of stalls where you can find local handicrafts and gift items. There are also a couple of Kiosks selling local snacks which is yet another highlight of this market.


Majeedhee Magu

When it comes to street shopping nothing quite beats the Majeedhee Magu in the Maldives. This street market is another 'it'places among both locals and tourists visiting this part of the world. You pretty much get it all here. The clothes, the shoes, the electronics, the gadgets and even plenty of interesting locally crafted souvenirs. The cherry on the top to shopping in Majeedhee Magu is the ample bargaining opportunities. If you want to put your deal-making talents to test this is a great place to start.


Le Cute

Now, this is a good place to get your hands on all types of beauty products. Perfumes are the highlight of Le Cute and you get quite the variety here. The prices are competitive but it is certainly worth checking out. In addition to perfumes, you also get cosmetics and healthcare products which include an interesting range of unique herbal products.
