Grocery Shopping in Male

Hi everyone,

I will be arriving in Male on Wednesday (September 3rd) and I will have the day in Male before heading out to a smaller local island (Fulidhoo), and I would like to do a little bit of grocery shopping in Male before I leave.. I am assuming that because Male is so big (population wise) there has to be some sort of grocery store.

Sri Lanka + the Maldives = help!

Hello

Me and my girlfriend are visiting Sri Lanka in Nov/Dec this year and are interested in also visiting the Maldives as part of our trip

Good books

Hi all,

Can any of you recommend good Maldivian reads? I am interested in novels, biographies and poetry and the books could either be set in the Maldives or be inspired by Maldivian life, love and culture... you get the idea. Thanks in advance for your recommendations!! :D

Best,

Best snorkeling in the Maldives

I am considering taking a last minute trip to the Maldives in late July. I realize this is the off season but I'm coming from the UAE so it can't possibly be hotter!

Best site to book a hotel in the Maldives

I'm planning on going to the Maldives for the first time in November this year. I have been searching for hotels online but there are many many choices like booking.com, tripadvisor, hotels.com maldivesresortdeals.com, hotelscombined.com etc. I want to stay at Medhufushi Island Resort but the best deal i can find is stay 7 pay 6. Anyone know of any good sites or am i travelling at the wrong time of year to get a decent discount?
