Consisting of hundreds of smaller islands and atolls, the Maldives is renowned as an unforgettable travel experience. The island capital of the Maldives is a major transit point for travellers from across the globe.

How to explore?

Designed like a miniature version of New York, in a grid system, so that exploration of this wonderful little island is relatively simple. Prepare yourself for a little stroll around the city!

Where to stay:

You can opt to stay at a Maldives water villa or hop onto a flight and head out to Anantara Kihavah Maldives or the many other resort islands available, depending on the kind of experience you are looking for. You may also opt to simply stay at the airport hotel!

What to do?

With no major attractions like many other global capitals, the Sultan Park and the National Museum are good options for those who are looking for a somewhat diverse agenda during their visit.

Sites to visit:

While there may not be much to do, you can still experience what it is like to live on an island completely dependent of the water around it, with the traditional main market selling things like betel nut and freshly caught fish.
