5 Tips To Keep In Mind While Visiting Maldives
Thinking of visiting Maldives? A great nation to be in, Maldives can prove to be costly if you don’t do some proper planning. Below we list some of the worthy tips to consider, if you are visiting Maldives.
5. Everything comes costly
When you travel through Maldives, you will realize that everything is costly, even at general market places and not only luxury hotels. Drinks and food items are generally shipped from abroad to Male and then to resorts or hotels.
Every activity in Maldives, be it rentals, visit to spa or sightseeing is costly and you need to have a proper budget before you think of venturing here.
4. Be aware from all inclusive packages
All inclusive packages have become popular in the recent years. The same is true for Maldives also but you need to keep in mind things which would form a part of any such package. If for example, you are travelling with children consider the fact if hot chocolate is included in the same.
3. Check out for Wi-Fi connectivity and costs
Maldives is so beautiful that you would like to disconnect from back home. However, in today’s world this is rarely possible and you need to be in touch with friends and office colleagues. Though many resorts offer free Wi-Fi connectivity many others charge amount varying from 150 USD per week to 8 or 10 USD per hour.
2. Location of the resort or villa
Location of the resort or villa you are staying in also has an impact on the overall budget you have planned for the visit. Check with your travel agent, the location and price of the resort you would be staying at, prior to the visit plan.
Always try to find a resort which is not too near to public transport, bars or ferries. Quite lot of commotion will be created in any such resort and your holiday plan might go wary. Cost compulsions though might let you think of a workable solution and you can think and plan as per your budget availability.
1. Be updated on the weather front
Weather can play a spoilsport with your travel plan and you should always check out weather forecast before you move out from resort as well as when you are planning to leave for Maldives. Planning a travel schedule during rainy season will be of little use as you would then be confined indoors most of the time.
