05 Things You Need To Know About Visiting The Maldives - Before you venture to the island

If you are planning on visiting the Maldives anytime soon, here are a few things you might want to know about the country before the holiday.


The rules and regulations of the country

If you are going to be staying at a Maldives resort the likes of Kurumba Maldives during your vacation here then you do not have to follow many rules while you are on the premises. But if you are going to venture out and explore the mainland and the capital of the Maldives with the natives, you must remember to dress conservatively as, after all, the Maldives is a Muslim country which has extremely strict Islamic rules and regulations that are enforced upon the people who visit the place. Alcohol is strictly prohibited in all parts of the country except in the resort premises you are staying at. Also, you can freely roam around in shorts and bikinis while you are at your accommodation and the private beaches but you cannot do so in any other place.


The food and drinks in the Maldives

The cost of food and drinks in this country is comparatively higher when you compare it to the other beach destinations in this part of the world because the Maldives does not have many natural resources. The ingredients and other items to make the food and drinks are imported from the countries nearby. This makes the cost of food and drink much more expensive. When you are booking accommodation, it is better to go for a package that covers all your meals and other needs inside the hotel itself because you will be incurring extra costs otherwise.


What to expect in the Maldives?

When you visit some popular destination that you have seen in so many pictures on your feedback home you might be disappointed because sometimes the photographs do not match the reality that is found in the country. But when it comes to holiday in the Maldives, you will not be disappointed at all because the pictures do no justice to the place in real life. What you see on the pictures is nothing compared to what you will see when you visit this country as the endless beaches, the golden sunsets, infinite white sands and more, are all mind-blowing.


The best time to visit the country

Most of the activities you will be doing in this country are either in the water, under the water or near the water. Maldives has only two main seasons; the summer and the monsoon season. The monsoon season sees some rainfall during the day but it will not hinder your activities much. If you want to save some cash during your vacation to the Maldives plan it during the off peak season.


The country is for everyone

Regardless of what the many blogs and internet websites may tell you, Maldives is not just meant for honeymooners and couple's vacations. A group of friends will have just the same amount of fun in this country.
