The Maldives is a beautiful archipelago located southwest of India. It is located in the Pacific Ocean and considered a member of the southern Asian countries. It is a premier tourist destination known for its remarkable beaches and diving spots. Although the country has more than 1,100 islands, only 200 are inhabited and less than 50% of the islands offer accommodation for tourists.
Transportation by Air
There is only one way to get in Maldives – by plane. Yachts and boats avoid Maldives because of the coral reefs and permits to enter the country through water are very expensive.
But even though there is only one option to visit the country, getting in is very easy. Every tourist is given a 30-day tourist visa as long as he or she has valid travel documents and a round trip ticket.
Visiting Different Places in Maldives
As a premier tourist destination, it should be expected that Maldives can be relatively expensive especially on transportation. The best way to enjoy your travels to Maldives without spending too much money is to look for advance reservations so that you can get an early bargain. This is highly recommended if you’re planning to visit different islands while staying in the Maldives.
More than Malé
Maldives capital Malé is a very popular destination not only because it’s the entry point for tourists but also as the country’s business hub. But don’t just stay in Malé since there are more than 80 islands that can be easily explored by tourists any time of the day.
Some of these islands are known for their sandy beaches while others are known for their exquisite diving sites. What ever your age or interest there is sure to be something you will enjoy on a holiday to the Maldives.
