Why Visit Maldives

A trip later to the Maldivian capital of Male would be a great way to end your day. There is a wide range of hotels ranging from underwater hotels to overwater private bungalows. Since the Maldives is an isolated island, located between the Arabian and Laccadive seas, roughly 500 miles southwest of Sri Lanka, you may decide to plan your trip smartly to avoid any inconvenience.
