Taking a Maldives holiday is truly breathtaking. You will be going to what many consider as one of the last remaining paradise islands left in the world.
The Maldives is a very peaceful place with little violence and cultural problems because there is one race of people that speak only one language, governing itself as a republic. The local people are usually very friendly and happily welcome tourists to which of the 1200 island you choose to visit.
Seeing family life in the Maldives can seem quite primitive but quite understandable. It’s very much like our values from the 1950’s or 1960’s where the women stayed at home and the men go out to work. In the Maldives the men will go out to fish, often for many days in order to bring home fish for the family.
Those choosing Maldives holidays will discover the local religion which is primarily Islamic. You may experience one of the Islamic festivals that take part throughout the year which involve people of all ages.
Male’ is the capital of the Maldives and home to the Islamic Centre. Built as a tourist attraction, if you are interested in learning more about the religion and history while on one of the Maldives holidays then this amazing gold dome mosque is the place to go, it can be found near the main jetty.
While in Male’ it is worth taking the time to do your souvenir hunting and shopping as well as visit the tombs of legendary saints and if you want more there is also a museum.
Most people with go to enjoy the almost guaranteed sunshine, which stays pretty much at the same temperature throughout the year. Experience the amazing crystal clear waters, the deep blue colours blending in with the light shades of blue and take the time to dive in to experience the underwater life. Whichever island is chosen for it will definitely be an Maldives holidays enjoyable one.
