Everybody has a different perception of a destination. Until you have been somewhere you will never truly understand what the culture, cuisine and local places are like. This is a top reason to visit as many places as you can. This month we want to share some interesting tips on the Maldives, it is not only for honeymooners, there’s wide range of activities for younger people too.
Juts check out our top tips for the Maldives to make the most of your trip or inspire you to book your next long haul holiday there!
1. Swim with the whale sharks or manta rays. There are only a handful of destinations where seeing them is guaranteed - so make sure you don’t miss out and go see them here - it will feel like you’ve stepped into David Attenborough's TV programme seeing these unique creatures.
2. You may want to visit the Maldives to relax, however you simply must visit a local village to meet the locals. You’ll understand the simple beauty of their culture. People live in communities where they are familiar with everyone and live like extended families with their neighbours. Traditional gender roles are generally followed here where men go out to work and women take care of the homes, cooking and the children. Everybody is most welcoming.
3. Try your hand at a fishing trip, one of the main occupations on the island is fishing so they know where would be best to take you on a tour. There are all types from sunrise to sunset tours depending on what suits you. You’ll hear lots about the history from the tour guides and hopefully come across amazing creatures!
4. One of the most romantic activities is to take a sunset cruise and sip champagne and admire the flying fish and friendly dolphins. Watching the beautiful sunset will make your heart melt – what’s not to love!
5. Fancy taking a trip to the capital? Male, is the capital of the Maldives, a fantastic place and one of the top ten things to do here! The pint-sized Maldivian capital is the throbbing, mercantile heart of the nation, a densely crowded and extraordinary place, notable mainly for its stark contrast to the laid-back pace of island life elsewhere in the country. Male is also pleasant and pleasingly quirky – alcohol-free bars and restaurants jostle with shops and lively markets and the general hubbub of a capital is very much present.
We hope that even if the Maldives doesn’t seem like one of your bucket list trips then you want to pop in and talk to us about one that is. We look forward to hearing from you!
