Holidays In Maldives
The Maldives are an island country in the Indian Ocean, southwest of India and Sri Lanka. The Maldives are also the smallest country in Asia, with regard to the population and the surface of the territory. It is a tropical country with hot monsoon time all year long. The capital of the Maldives is male. This is probably where you come first.
The official language of the country is Divehi, although the population also includes English because of the high tourism development. It is one of the most dispersed geographically in the world. Early Maldives settlers were people of the Indian subcontinent Dravidian.
The Maldives Republic consists of a group of 1,192 islands that form 26 atolls. It is at a very low altitude. In fact, the country’s average height is about 1.5 meters, making it the “lowest” country in the world.
Most Maldives are Muslims. There are several ancient mosques that can be found in the Maldives, along with the tombs of different saints. Most of the country’s culture feels the influence of Islamic tradition.
The Maldives currency is Rufiyah. The exchange rate is about 12.75 Rufiyah for 1 dollar. Most resorts and islands accept US dollars, but you have to have small denominations. The largest resorts also accept euro, sterling, yen and other popular currencies. However, you must check this case with a resort. Also, some villages work on a signing system when signing for all items and then paying with credit or cash at checkout.
It is also best to pay with you instead of checking a credit card or a traveler. It would be difficult to find a bank or ATM in small islands on the island. However, there are some in bad and on some larger islands. Some locations can also pay for your travel checks, but they will charge you a great commission.
In Bad is not difficult to find a taxi. Rent a car is also different. Or you can book in advance via internet. However, it may not be necessary. In most islands it takes no more than half an hour to walk. And there are only bad roads and some other islands.
