NEWS FROM THE ISLANDS
Follow the footsteps of the locals and experience the Maldivian way of life.
Crystal clear seas, powdery white sand and indulgence beyond measure are three things that come to mind whenever the Maldives is mentioned. Whilst the country is famous for its unique beauty and extravagant resorts, it is not solely dedicated to the wealthy tourist – it offers various accommodation options catering to a diverse range of preferences. These facilities are broadly categorized into four types: resorts, hotels, guesthouses and liveaboards.
Maldives epitomises luxury and romance at its best. However, there are so many things that tourists can do which do not fit into these two categories. If you are looking to travel on a budget or simply go backpacking – or island hopping as they call it – there are so many amazing activities you can fit into your itinerary without the fear of emptying your wallets.
You’ve heard others call it “paradise on earth”. What is so special about the Maldives, you wonder. You know you’ve got to see it for yourself, but you’re not interested in a curated experience. You want to explore at your own pace, to pick a random direction and just go and have flexibility over your schedule, your plans and your time. In fact, you don’t wanna plan it all out before you go either, you just want to see where the flow takes you.
