" My 6 days 5 nights in Maldives - my first exploratory visit; experiencing the sunny side of life & saying hello to sun, sand & sea in Maldives from 6-11/8/2017 together with my travel buddy, K C Leong & his spouse "
Maldives is one of the 10 smallest country in the world (the other four smallest countries I had visited are ie Liechtenstein, Monaco, San Marino & Vatican City). Maldives have 1,190 tropical islands spreading over 90,000 sq km in the Indian Ocean, the world most dispersed country !
Food prices sold in major supermarkets or provision shops are double or triple that of my home country, Malaysia and if you love spicy food, Maldives is the right place for you to dine but without a beer or alcohol drink as Maldives is a Muslim country ! But in private resorts, this may be allowed but check first before your booking ! Most of the processed food & beverages sold in supermarkets or provision shops are fully imported from nearby countries.
Air Asia airfare: Rm783 (US$183)
1) Male International Airport (everlasting smiles as soon as you land after a short, transit or long flights from your home country)
2) Hulhumale (ideal for an overnight stay before venturing out to atolls, Male City or nearby private villas by speed boats etc)
3) Male City (buildings standing tall but watch up for motorists zooming in and out of the narrow side lanes around the city)
4) Vilingili Public Beach (ideal for a day or night visit, 24 hrs ferry services from Male City !)
