Spending holidays in Maldives has been always a dream for me. I wanted to go to this beautiful island nation for a very long time now. So finally when I made my trip to Maldives I was literally delighted. For an average Asian visiting Maldives could be expensive and I am no exception. Since I got a good package deal from club med which includes flight tickets I could afford it.
Bangkok to Male Flight:
Bangkok airways operate direct flights between Bangkok and Maldives. As far as I know this is the only direct flight to Male from Bangkok. They have only weekly two flights, one on Monday and the other on Thursday. So, if you are planning to visit Maldives from Thailand make sure that you book your flight tickets well in advance.
The Republic of Maldives is located in Indian ocean at the south west of Sri Lanka. The monthly weather in Maldives can affect your trip. Rain can play a spoil sport. So make sure that it is not raining when you are in the island nation. Normally the southwest monsoon will hit Maldives during June to August. During this period it usually rains in the island.
The beaches of Maldives are simply spectacular. They have sandy beaches with crystal clear sea water which is ideal for snorkeling and diving. As you know Thailand is also a good place for underwater adventures. Hope you have seen the Koh Samui photos and Krabi photos which I posted earlier. What I felt is, the corals are more beautiful in Thailand, but the sea water was more clear in Maldives and the place is less crowded and more natural.
I enjoyed every moment I spent in Maldives and hope to go there again. I have taken many photos and I will post some pictures from Maldives in the next update. 🙂
