Holiday makers from around the world have seen many pictures of Maldives islands from different regions. In the Maldives islands different regions are called Atolls. There are a few things you must understand about the Maldives islands :
It is a Muslim country with a very peaceful population that is very friendly to foreign tourists from around the world. It is important to remember that the Maldives islands have been receiving tourists from over 100 countries for decades. Most high end to mid range tourists from Japan, Europe, Russia, China and others.
It is possible to travel within Maldives by yourself, but due to the lack of easily accessible information on solo traveling within the country, it is always best to find a travel agent inside Maldives that has a good social following and has a website. While traveling solo or backpacking in the Maldives islands, and if find yourself in any disagreements with any travel agents or tour guide, it is very easy to lodge a police report once you get back to the international airport, Hulhumale city or the capital Male’ city which has the police headquarters right in front of the beach area where the big national flag park is located. However 90% of tourists to the Maldives are as mentioned mid or high-end tourists, so there usually is very little problems faced by tourists during their holiday.
When entering the Maldives you must have a hotel booking to show the immigration. At the moment you require a negative covid test result as well to show, however this might change in the future depending on the situation. There are no quarantine on arrival for tourists visiting the Maldives islands.
In the Maldives islands if you are booking a budget hotel or what locals call as guest house, you should double check if the hotel has a restaurant to serve breakfast and if there is a bikini beach located near it. This is because on islands where there is a mixed local population with tourists, there is designated bikini beach areas approved by the government. So it is important to double check with the hotel if there is one. Try to look for hotels like Nazaki Residences Beach Hotel which has their own private bikini beach just for their hotel guests, including a big garden area which makes the hotel feel almost like a beach front resort.
In the Maldives islands, there are two types of hotels: One is called a “hotel” which means it is most likely located in an inhabited island with a local community, which gives you the opportunity to visit some local shops and take pictures of local community lifestyle. The second type of hotel is what is called a “resort”, which means there is only one hotel in one island. This means everyone on that is either a tourist staying at the resort or one of the resort employees. This unique form of resort concept was first developed in the Maldives and is one of the most expensive type of holiday accommodation in the Maldives islands.
When you go to the Maldives, do not take any alcohol or beer with you as it will be confiscated on arrival. These are available in some hotels and resorts, but not all. Nevertheless nearly all tourists that comes to the Maldives has left with complete satisfaction because it has allowed them to get away from the busy and unhealthy work life and just relax with their loved ones in the Maldives by creating that special memory that they would remember for a lifetime.
