How was your weekend? Today I am going to start another series of posts which will take your through our fun-filled trip to Maldives from December 2014…well yes it was our honeymoon trip 😀
Maldives is quite the center of people’s attention when it comes to relaxing vacation, may be because it is made of a cluster of many small big islands and is a little paradise in center of literally nowhere. It really gives you goosebumps as you fly through cluster of these small islands.
We booked our flights from Mumbai-Male which had a connecting hault at Kochi for both onward and return journey :). Airport in Maldives is at Hulhunmale island which is 100% man-made island and has a very well planned layout. We had 1 day reservation at a beach-side resort in Hulhunmale. From airport you can take public transport bus or cab which will take you through the city.
If you do need to change money, it’s best to do it at Bank Of Maldives at the airport. They will give you a receipt and will change any remaining rufiyaa back into the original currency. None of the other banks will exchange rufiyaa back. I suggest you should exchange some money to rufiyaa as it becomes easy to spend for local shops, ferrys and public transport buses.
Hulhunmale is not very big or populated, it looks like a big neighborhood of any city. While traversing through the city, seeing all the row aligned houses and constructions I felt like I’m in some animated movie 😛 and throughout our stay I was not able to believe that I’m in a actual city 😀 We reached the resort at afternoon and changed to appropriate clothes and headed for the beach without any delay 😀
Hulhunmale has only public beaches. In Maldives there are designated bikini beaches and public beaches. Wearing bikini is not allowed on public beaches. So Ladies make sure you keep sarongs and scarfs in your beach bag and guys make sure to keep a t-shirt on 😀
We had lots of fun in water, clicked lots of random pictures, watches sunset and relaxed. We both love beaches and waves :D’.
You are not allowed to enter Maldives with liquors and you won’t find any liquor shop their. Liquor is only served inside over-the-sea resorts which are there on few islands and they have an entry fee starting minimum $50 to whooping $200 per person. Stay at these resorts starts with minimum $150.
Mr. Husband cannot resist any sport, volleyball in this case. I also wanted to but had my shaadi bangles on, we need to wear those for one and a half month post marriage.
Stay tuned for more…take care…xoxo.
