Five things you didn’t know about the Maldives

1. It is expensive.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. Many of the people of the Maldives are Muslim, which means there are strict rules around the consumption of alcohol. Tourists cannot bring alcohol into the country or consume it on inhabited islands.

5.  It’s that beautiful.
