5 Things You Didn’t Know About Maldives

It is expensive.

You may think that Maldives is cheap with their over-water bungalows. But did you know that each bungalow is worth 1000 USD a night? Yes that is right! While Maldives is a great place to stay, it might cause a fortune to savor its beauty. So it is important that you prepare financially if you are going here.

Three or four days is plenty!  

This is not a vacation for activity. This is definitely a vacation to relax.  Most hotels are located on their own private island thus it is the only hotel on the island. A peaceful short stay of 3 or 4 days will still last a lifetime of memories.

Peaceful. Relaxing. Romantic. And, luxurious.

Save up and plan to spend money for a nice getaway.  Don’t go with a cheap hotel for this trip. You may find yourself fretting over the price of things, but try to remember that the Maldives is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. A generous dash of indulgence is part of the Maldives experience, and you won’t enjoy it if you’re constantly worried about cash. Build out your budget before you arrive, so you won’t have to worry about pinching pennies.

Many of the people of the Maldives are Muslim.

Yes that is true! That means there are strict rules around the consumption of alcohol. Tourists cannot bring alcohol into the country or consume it on inhabited islands.

 It’s that beautiful.  

Maldives is absolutely a beautiful place to travel to. In fact, it is known as the “tropical paradise” because of its alluring beauty. This tropical country has a group of islands surrounded by its own lagoon. Each island feature pristine white, sandy beaches. The flooring of some bungalows are made of glass allowing you to look over into the colorful corals and fishes underwater. This place is totally a heaven!
