Maldives Tour


Maldives TravelsThe famous explorer Marco Polo referred to the Maldives as the 'flower of the Indies,' while the great traveler Ibn Batuta called her 'one of the wonders of the world.' The archipelago of Maldives has been a constant source of attraction to many tourists all over the globe. Its golden beaches, washed by the azure waters of the Indian Ocean, are enticing to one who loves to venture into the sea.

The Maldives has always and will always remain a unique destination for the fun loving tourist seeking an exotic holiday. Today, a common language (Dhivehi) and religion (Islam) have been two blessings that unite the people into a cohesive and peaceful society. Pride is taken in tradition though not at the expense of liberal and enlightened compassionate thinking.

As trade along the sea routes blossomed, the Maldives became an important stop for Arab traders on the way to the Far East, and along with these traders came the influence of Islam. The legend of the conversion to Islam remains a popular tale and a matter of recent controversy. It is believed that a Moroccan traveler, Abu Barakaat Yusuf al-Barbary was responsible for this conversion, but another version credits Sheikh Yusuf Shamsuddin of Tabriz, a renowned scholar, for this deed.

With the growth of British influence and the expansion of their Empire, the Maldives became a British protectorate, in an unusual arrangement where the British ensured the defense of the islands yet were not involved in any way with the running of the country. The close relationships with the British ensured a period of peace and freedom from foreign interference. During the Second World War, The British had forward bases in the north and south of the archipelago and, in 1957, the RAF established a base in Gan in the south. This airbase closed in 1976.

The Maldives became a fully independent nation on July 26, 1965, and a Republic on November 11, 1968.

Fauna and Flora

Due to the small size of the islands and the resulting high soil salinity, the natural vegetation has a high proportion of salt tolerant species of both shrubs and trees.

Coconut palms cover the islands; except the capital, Malé, where natural vegetation was cleared extensively for urban development. A few varieties of vegetables and tropical fruits are grown in the islands.

In contrast to the deficiency of terrestrial biodiversity, the country is extremely rich in marine fauna, especially in the coral reefs, making the reefs of the Maldives one of the world’s most diverse marine environments. Two groups of marine species most studied are fish and corals. Studies have recognised 187 species of stony corals, 1,090 fish species and 5 species of turtles. Marine mammals recorded include 7 species of dolphins and 9 species of whales.

Maldives Beach Tour, Maldives Holidays VacationMaldives - the coral archipelago of 26 atolls and 1190 islands are located south west of India, approximately one hour by flight from Trivandrum, South India or Colombo, Sri Lanka. The inhabited islands number only 199, and the population 300,000. The word atoll is adapted into English from Dhivehi, the language of the Maldives, with roots to Sanskrit and Pali. English is widely spoken. The climate of Maldives is warm year round, determined by the monsoons. The Northwest Monsoon (November - April) is drier, while the Southwest Monsoon (May - October) brings more rain. However, the monsoons are mild and not as defined as in some neighboring countries.

These islands stretch like a garland of emeralds on a sparkling blue sea and dazzle with white beaches, turquoise lagoons, clear warm waters and coral reefs teeming with marine life, continue to fascinate visitors as it has fascinated others in the past for thousands of years.

Culture in Maldives

The Maldives has been a melting pot of different cultures as people from different parts of the world came here and settled down. Origin of the Maldivians is lost in antiquity, but history reveals that the islands have been populated for over 3,000 years ago. Early settlers were travelers on the Silk Route and from the Indus Valley Civilization. Inherently warm, friendly and hospitable by nature, it is easy to feel comfortable and relaxed with a Maldivian.

As one would expect there is a great South Asian influence in some of the music and dancing and especially in the traditional food of the Maldivians. However many of the South Asian customs especially with regard to women - for instance the Sub Continent’s tradition of secluding women from public view - are not tenets of life here.

In order to make the travel tour to Maldives even more joyful you need to choose just the right kind of accommodation for you and your family or friends in Maldives. The various hotels packages in Maldives offer the best of facilities. You may take your pick from a range of luxury and budget hotels and lodges in Maldives besides the star categorized accommodation hotels around the landmarks of Maldives offer excellent view of the landmarks through their suites. Most of the places to stay in Maldives are strategically located in the tourist centers.

Imagine the excitement of watching a great whale blowing, its powerful body surging through the water. Or a host of dolphins leaping from the sea in energetic bounds just a few feet in front to of you. If this appeals to you, then the Maldives has what you are looking for.

Maldives TourismTourism in Maldives is still a developing and growing industry. Although Maldives with its panoramic lagoons and bays is one of the most beautiful and serene tourist destinations, it is also very expensive. The main reason for the high cost of amenities is the fact that most of the things required to make tourists comfortable have to be imported from outside the country. The tourism policy in Maldives is such that though tourists are welcome to explore the wonders of this island, the laws make sure that the indigenous people should not feel as though their life is being disrupted. Those who are interested in spending a longer time in these islands have to get special permits issued from the government of Maldives.

The various tourist destinations that you may visit during your vacations and tours to Male are the National Museum, there are more than 20 mosques that you may visit besides the Sultan Park and the Singapore bazaar.

Apart from Male you can visit Seenu, which is the second most important city in the Maldives. The resort located on the island of Seenu is an interesting place to visit, it is called the Ocean Reef Resort and the interesting aspect of this pleasure resort is the fact that it had been a military base in the past.

LOCATION

Maldives is a group of coral islands that stretch along the 73rd meridian between latitudes 0°42' south and 8°10' north. The shortest distance from the mainland of India is 350 km and from Sri Lanka 740 km. The islands lie in the northern Indian Ocean and the sea area is approximately 107,500 sq km. There are some 1,200 islands in the country, 202 of which are inhabited. The archipelago is 823 km long and 130 km at its greatest width. The islands are formed into 26 natural atolls but they are divided into 19 administrative regions, also known as "atolls."

Each atoll is enclosed by a fringing coral reef that has a few deep, natural channels serving as entry points. Likewise, a protective coral reef surrounds each island. Most islands have a shallow lagoon, known in Maldivian as a villu.

Pirates and other powerful invaders of the day often disturbed the tranquility of the islands. A Portuguese invasion resulted in their capture of the Maldives for a period of fifteen years after which they were overthrown by a mixture of early guerilla tactics and the difficulty of logistical support for the occupying forces. With the growth of British influence, the Maldives became a British protectorate-an odd arrangement where the British ensured the defense of the islands, yet were not involved in any way with the running of the country. The close relationships with the British ensured a period of peace and freedom from foreign interference. The Maldives became a fully independent nation on July 26, 1965, and a Republic on November 11, 1968.

FAIRS & FESTIVALS

Sun Set View, MaldivesMost Maldivian holidays are based on the Islamic lunar calendar and the dates vary from year to year. The most important religious event is Ramadan (known locally as rorda mas), the Islamic month of fasting. Other notable festivals are Kuda Id, the sighting of the new moon (celebrated at the end of Ramadan), and the Prophet's Birthday, which commemorates the birthday of the founder. The National Day is observed on the first day of the third month of the lunar calendar and marks the day Mohammed Thakurufaan and his men overthrew the Portuguese from Malé in 1573, while the Republic Day is celebrated on 11 November, commemorating the formation of the current Republic in 1968. The Victory Day marks the victory over Sri Lankan mercenaries who tried to overthrow the Maldivian government on 3 November 1988.

Once a popular pursuit among tourists to the Maldives, most resorts tend to discourage water skiing these days. There have been many complaints that heavy and regular use of fast boats near the reef is detrimental to the environment, as well as a risk to people in the water. The prohibitive cost of petrol and high maintenance costs make water-skiing an expensive sport in the Maldives.

Parasailing is also being discouraged nowadays. The large numbers of helicopter and seaplane movements are causes for concern, albeit the operators are experienced and take all precautions. For those who are lucky and still venture out, the spectacular display of the islands and of the various shades of turquoise lagoons is an ample reward.

HOW TO REACH

BY AIR - Almost all visitors to the Maldives arrive by air. Malé International Airport, situated in Hulhule Island, is just over a kilometer or about ten minutes by boat from Malé, the capital. There are regular flights to Colombo (Sri Lanka), Thiruvananthapuram (southwest India), Dubai, and Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), as well as many chartered flights from European centers.

BY WATER - Cruising among the islands may be an exciting alternative. Yachts and yacht-dhonis with bunk beds or private cabins are available for hire. These boats can accommodate between eight to twenty passengers on cruises that sail for ten to fifteen days. Some of the larger vessels have scuba diving and windsurfing facilities with qualified instructors on board. Food prepared by the crew using the day's fresh catch of fish may be modest, but a tourist is never too far to stop for a sumptuous meal or a drink. On a cruise, dining under a clear sky in the Maldives can be an experience in itself. With the equator running through the Maldives, it is an astronomer's dream too.
