5 Maldives Travel Tips to Know Before You Go – Must-Know Facts

The experience of flying to the Maldives is rather an exciting affair. Travellers who’d set their feet on these scenic islands will have that unmistakable spark in their eyes, gleaming with the anticipation of what lies ahead of their days. Here are some travel tips you must know!


Plan According to the Weather

The Maldives is one of those places where the sun seems to shine throughout the year. However, it is not to say that it has its seasons, which comes in two forms: the dry and wet seasons. So why would you need to plan according to this weather, you may ask. Well, it’s important as these two seasons bring with them drastic price fluctuations, which would make you decide between breaking your bank and enjoying your holiday within your budgetary limitations. November to April is the dry season in the Maldives, which is also when the prices soar high due to high demand. The wet season is between May and October, which brings relatively low rates than the dry season. However, it’s not to say that the wet season can’t be enjoyed. Those who prefer the comfort of rainy days would probably enjoy a cosy stay at their beach resort in Maldives.


Respect Islamic Traditions

The Maldives is a country that is immersed in the strict Islamic faith. So, it is indeed wise to have a fair knowledge of their etiquette, laws, and other expectations before you arrive in the Maldives. This country has imposed strict laws prohibiting anyone from bringing material into the country, which goes against their religious teachings. Some of these items are pork-based products, alcohol, and pornography. Practising other religious in public is not allowed as well. Alcohol isn’t allowed to be brought into the country; however, you may enjoy your favourite alcohol within the confines of your resort such as Embudu Village.


Choose Wise Travel Options

Did you know that you can save a lot on your Maldives travel expenses by paying more attention to your travelling methods? If you’re travelling from the US, you can cut back on your airfare by travelling to the Middle East first and choosing a regional or domestic flight to take you to the Maldives. Rather than a direct flight, one that includes a layover would be quite budget-friendly. Also, find out resorts that offer all-inclusive packages that would also include airport transfers and speed boat rides to your hotel.


Pack Wisely

While you’re paying attention to leaving all things that aren’t allowed in the Maldives, you should also focus on what you’d need with you when you arrive in the Maldives. Since the sun would be most likely beating down upon you, make sure that you’d pack the essentials that would help protect you from the sun – this may include sunscreen, sunglasses, and a large hat. Don’t forget to pack a water-resistant camera because you’d definitely need it during your excursions in its marine wonderland.


Avoid Changing Places

While it may seem rather tempting to go island hopping in the Maldives, you should also know that higher costs are associated with this activity. Make sure to pick one resort or guesthouse and plan on trying out activities offered by the same property to avoid large expenses.
