Anyone would be in Maldives between those dates? I'm planning to do an Asian Trip but not sure yet which places to go. But I'm pretty sure I will be in Maldives and SIngapore. I'm planning to include Malaysia and maybe Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam.

Hi,
I hope this is not off topic. What happens if they find some coral (or shells) in your luggage at Male airport? I found a small hearth shaped dead coral on the beach and wondered whether I could be able to bring it home.
Does anybody have experience with this?

Hello guys,

Planing a 6 month career break. First stop Sri Lanka...... Start in September and going to be leaving Sri Lanka after 30 days. As its so close would love to go to the Maldives.... Solo traveler would it be worth going? Or is it full on rain at this time!?

We are travelling to see our family in Western Australia in October and planning a couple of weeks in the Maldives en route.

So many options! We are a fairly fit mid-late sixties couple looking for a quiet stay to enjoy relaxing beach life with some swimming and snorkelling - preferably snorkelling close to the shore for a nervous snorkeller - me!

We are hoping to book a small hotel or guest house rather than the huge 5* resort hotels if possible.

Any advice on location and accommodation…

Hi All,

We are looking after our visit to Sri Lanka to go to the Maldives.
However we are stuck with the July month.

I do read on the internet different stories regarding the weather.
Is there anyone here with experience traveling in July to the Maldives?

Thanks in advance.

Cheers!

Kimberly

Backpacking

HI All,
I have a few questions which I hope people can help me with.
Is July / August a good time to visit ?
Are there backpacking opportunities in the Maldives ? I want to visit to do some diving.
Can you access the good diving as a backpacker ?
Are there cheap flights from India ?
How much is the budget diving in the region ?
Can anyone give any recommendations ?
Thanks so much to anyone who can help.
P.S. Can anyone compare it to Raja Ampat ?

Hi everyone!

My friend and I will be backpacking in Sri Lanka in June and could potentially stopover in the Maldives for up to 5 days with no difference in flight route/price. I understand Maldives are very much targeted to honeymooners and luxury-seekers, but I have also read backpackers testimonies that sound great. I just wanted to get some opinions in addition to what I've been reading.

  • How possible is island-hopping? If so, with only 5 days I dont think we'd make it to more than two…

Hi There,

Myself and my girlfriend are visiting the Maldives on the back of a trip to Sri Lanka. We are thinking about going there for about 4-5 days in late August.

Can anyone recommend a good atoll/ island to base ourselves from? our hotel budget is around 200-300 USD/ night.

We are both experienced divers and live in the Philippines. keen to see mantas if possible. From my research maybe the Male atoll or Baa atoll may be best?

Hey guys, I'm going to be in the Maldives for only about 3 days this week and will pretty much be staying near Male (backpacking budget). However, I want to do some diving and was wondering if there are good spots nearby. The other thing is that I haven't dived in about 5 years and will need a refresher lesson. Is this possible to do there? I heard diving in the Maldives can be pretty great so I really want to experience it while there!
