The Maldives remains to be the most favorite international destination for romance, having said that, the tropical island nation is always advertised as an ultimate destination for romance. If you are dreaming of visiting the Maldives for your honeymoon or with your family, I can assure you that there are plenty of things to know about the Maldives if you are visiting it for the first time.

Therefore, without further ado, here we go! Brace yourselves.

  1. Tourist Visa on Arrival for Indian Passport Holders

Indians don’t require a pre visa on arrival to enter into the Maldives. You will be given the 30 days tourist visa on arrival at the Maldives Aiport - Velana International Airport. Also, the immigration process ends in the few minutes. You must have six months passport with validity, a confirmed return ticket, ensuring that you will not stay in the Maldives for business purpose.

  1. Transportation in The Maldives

The Maldives is surrounded and sits in 99% glasses of water and 1% land. So, it is obvious that the most preferred mode of transportation in the Maldives is ferries, speedboats, and seaplanes. The speedboats are used to transfer travelers to the resorts that are within the 40 to 50 km from the airport.

However, the seaplane ride is the best thing to do in the Maldives, but it is beyond the budget of travelers who are seeking an affordable Maldives tour package. Seaplane rides are used to transport guests to the private island resorts that are far and remote located islands.

  1. The Maldives Is Expensive as Well as Super Affordable at The Same Time

Although its true that booking your Maldives tour package is an expensive thing, the cost can be minimized if you will choose your staying option according to your budget.

Guest Houses or Boutique Hotels - $40 to $ 80; INR 2900 to INR 5800 per head

If you are someone who is short on CASH on the Maldives trip, then the best option you could pick is to stay at the guest house or boutique hotels on the local islands. The local islands are equally beautiful to stay in the Maldives with comfortable staying options. The only drawback is you can’t have much access to the activities after sunset.

  1. Dress Up Wisely Because Maldives Is a Muslim Country

Respect the religious norms of the country and dress wisely when you are in the local islands in the Maldives. Drinking alcohol is strictly prohibited on the local islands. Also, don’t wear swimsuits and bikinis while you are hopping the local Maldives island.

  1. Skip Instagram, Instead, Soak the Raw Views

In order to enjoy the true essence of the mesmerizing Maldives, give your social media and camera gear the break and focus on relaxing, rejuvenating in the calmer vibe sand peaceful aura of the Maldives. Grab the coconut, sit inside the shaded palm tree, and sip the coconut water. It's an amazing feeling, I must say!
