Things to know about Maldives – Everything you need to know about the tropical islands.

Maldives which consists of over 2000 islands is one of the most sought after travel destinations in the world and here are some things you should know before heading to Maldives.0


Excursions and locations

There are many different excursions that you can try your hand at in the Maldives. Things to do in and around the islands vary depending on several matters such as location, season and weather. Even though the Maldives consists of over 2000 islands most of the islands are uninhabited. The beautiful blue Indian Ocean is spread right around these islands but only some of these are suitable for any water sports or water related activities such as snorkelling, diving and surfing. If you are travelling to the island for a specific reason or looking forward to spending time experiencing a certain excursion then it is vital to read and gather information beforehand.


Rules and regulations

Maldives attracts lot of tourists from around the world in many different ages and ethnicities. Majority of the locals in the country are Arabic and there are certain rules and regulations you need to abide by while you are traveling in the stunning Maldives. Even though it is a beach destination you are not allowed to walk around in public places wearing bikinis and bathing suits. This is not a social practise, it is a rule that is practiced by the law. In resorts such as _Milaidhoo Island Maldives _where there is a private beach for the resort visitors, the tourists are much more relaxed and at ease as they have more freedom within the premises.


Seaplanes and transportation

Since the country is made of islands, a sea plane is your only mode of transportation from one island to another. Once you arrive in Male you can find a sea plane that can take you from the central city to the resort you are planning to stay at. Remember that there are no scheduled sea planes that you can plan your return flight with. You will have to plan ahead of time and leave enough room for a few hours at the airport in order to make sure you don’t miss your international flight. You can also make a request to your resort or hotel to check the details and get back to you on the day you need to return to Male. The sea planes are extremely overpriced and you need to be prepared for this. There is a chance that you will be charged a different price depending on your passport as the prices tend to change depending on the country you hold citizenship in.


Marine life

The marine life in Maldives and the excursions that evolve around is one main aspect that is not overrated. There are several south Asia countries that boast of stunning beaches with much marine life but there is a much better chance that you will be able to experience large Marine life in Maldives over anywhere else in Asia. Find out the locations you can go experience the hidden underwater world and make sure you plan to visit these locations if you are interested in being one with nature and swimming with fish.
