5 Important Tips When Planning a Maldives Trip – Insights for the Savvy Traveller

When planning a trip to the Maldives there will be some things to keep in mind, such as not skimping too much, dressing appropriately and enjoying excursions and water sports and so on. Read on to find out more.


Don't skimp too much on the money

Although there is nothing wrong with saving money, you shouldn't try to skimp too much on your Maldives experience. A holiday in the Maldives would be an unforgettable experience and spending on your getaway would be part of it. Also, you may not fully enjoy your Maldives holiday if you are constantly worrying about the cash that you are spending. It would be a good idea to create a suitable budget before arriving in the Maldives so that you will not have to be troubled about the expenses you are incurring.


Act and dress appropriately when away from your resort

If you intend to visit native Maldivian communities or inhabited islands, including Male, the capital, it will be important to dress modestly respecting the local Islamic culture. Accordingly, both women, as well as men, should not wear shorts that do not reach the knee. Additionally, women must wear clothes that are loose-fitting and cover the shoulders as well as the elbows. You must also avoid displays of affection in public. Further, it is important to remember that tourists may not bring alcohol to the country or drink it on the inhabited islands.


Enjoy the excursions and water sports

During your stay in the Maldives, you will have the opportunity to enjoy many interesting excursions with your life partner or family. You could undertake a sunset cruise that would offer many chances for romance or perhaps an exciting dolphin cruise which will take you into the ocean expanses where these playful marine mammals make their home. Diving will also be a highlight in the Maldives and many other water sports from snorkelling to surfing will also be available. One of the Maldives beach resorts to consider from where you could enjoy experiences such as these would be Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma Maldives.


Be kind to the environment

The Maldives happens to be the world's lowest-lying nation. You will see that some of the islands only just break the water's surface; in fact, there is a saying that dolphins can leap higher than the highest naturally occurring peak in the Maldives, which would be only 8 feet in height. Due to this reason, the Maldives could face serious consequences due to climate change, and it will also be the responsibility of visitors to do their best for the local environment. Therefore, you should take care to select resorts and activities which are compatible with sustainable practices while ensuring not to pollute the ocean or harm its marine and coral life in any way.


Invest in a good underwater camera

There is no doubt that the Maldives has secured a firm reputation as one of the world's most outstanding places for diving and snorkelling. If, as many visitors do, you intend to engage in several water sports during your stay in the Maldives, it would be a good idea to invest in a quality underwater camera; your holiday here will offer unforgettable memories and images beneath the waves that you will desire to capture forever.
