Travel to Maldives

Ah, Maldives officially The Republic of the Maldives, the pristine Island Nation located in the Indian Ocean.

The Maldives was always on my bucket list to travel as a budget traveller to explore the places and sit by the sea or do any sea adventures in one of the lowest countries in the world. Maldives maximum sea level height is around 1.5 meters, which has made most of the cottages, resorts and other places to stay on the surface of seawater, which in turn makes a good place for a honeymoon.

As soon as I was made up by my idea of visiting the Maldives I did some background checks and planned my vacation.

Typically, Indian Travelers do not need Pre-entry Tourist Visa for the Maldives as a free Maldivian visa will be valid for 90 days soon after arriving in its capital, Male. The Currency of Maldives is Maldivian Rufiyaa which can be purchased once we enter the nation.

There are several airlines which provide services to Maldives of which a trip from Bengaluru (BLR) will be cheaper and cost efficient to travel to the Maldives if you book early a round trip will approximately cost around`15000 or around $217.

Before booking flight tickets do check out where you want to stay in the Maldives as the resort provides pick up and drop services from the airport once you land, generally, the resorts do have seaplane service which needs to be paid as it is dependent on the distance from the resort which you are staying. If you want to try seaplane experience and it is a must as I recently did its best way to sea some of smaller islands of Maldives.

There are 12 Airports in the Maldives of which 4 are International Airports and 8 domestic airports.

Velana International Airport (VRMM) situated in Hulhulé, Male is the main international airport situated in North Atoll of Maldives region and is one of busiest airports in the Maldives. Hence before choosing which International Airport to be booked check the distance between the place of stay and airport so that you can avoid any surcharges on pick up and drop facility and also you can enjoy the day as soon as you land on the island.
