If you've never heard of the Maldives, you may have some preconceived notions about this famous vacation spot. Do you believe you have a complete understanding of life's bright side? Even if you do, there are a few misunderstandings about the Maldives that you should be aware of.
1. The Maldives are monotonous
The most ludicrous of the several myths about the Maldives is that the island nation is "boring." The Maldives is one of the greatest places on the planet to unwind and unwind. If you don't like the destination's lovely undersea world.
2. The Maldives is an Indian territory
The Maldives are not an Indian territory. The island nation is self-governing, with its own currency, language, and history.
3. The Maldives may be found in Hawaii, Bali, the Caribbean, and other places
People who have never heard of the Maldives imagine the island archipelago is located in Hawaii, Bali, or the Caribbean. The Maldives, on the other hand, are located in the north-central Indian Ocean.
4. The Maldives' only industry is tourism
While the Maldives' economy is mainly reliant on tourism, many Maldivians rely on fishing, agriculture, and other industries for a living. Furthermore, the fishing and tourism industries are related since resorts have a high need for seafood.
5. The Maldives consists of a single island
No, the Maldives are made up of 1192 small islands. Every resort in the country has its own tiny island to call home. As a result, loneliness and social alienation are natural in the tropical vacation spot.
6. To visit the Maldives, you'll need a visa
A tourist visa is available to all nationalities upon arrival in the Maldives. Tourists to the Maldives do not need to apply for a visa in advance. However, in order to obtain immigration clearance upon arrival, the person must fulfil the fundamental entrance requirements.
7. There is no cuisine in the Maldives
Maldivian food, often known as Dhivehi food, is the wonderful food of the Maldives. The country's traditional cuisine is built on three main ingredients and derivatives: coconuts, fish, and starches.
8. In the Maldives, there are just resorts
You're mistaken if you assume the Maldives exclusively has luxury resorts. On local islands, the island archipelago has stylish guesthouses that are a cheaper alternative to enjoy the sunny side of life.
9. The Maldives do not have their own culture
The Maldivian culture has been greatly affected by its neighbors. However, the country's own culture includes its own language and the famed Bodu Beru ritual. Traditional Maldivian crafts such as hardwood lacquerware and handcrafted boats are also available.
10. The Maldives' islands all have the same appearance
We'll keep it easy here: no, not every island in the Maldives looks the same.
11. Luxury villas are the norm in the Maldives
The Maldives' capital is noted for its colorful buildings and bustling fish market. Malé, the country's densely populated capital, is home to a substantial portion of the country's people. Remember that the Maldives aren't only for the wealthy, and there's never a shortage of things to do on this idyllic island paradise.
