WELCOME TO THE MALDIVES MALDIVES The Maldives is a collection of tiny atolls, renowned for their remarkable corals and an amazing variety of colourful marine life. Here you can kick off your footwear, swim to your heart’s content and truly enjoy the life of relaxation. A marvellous destination which can be combined with a stopover in Singapore or Dubai in order to gain the maximum enjoyment. AN ISLAND PARADISE An archipelago of 1190 islands, straddling the equator and scattered like gems across the Indian Ocean. Palm fringed islands with sparkling white beaches, turquoise lagoons and fabulous coral reefs. Clear, warm waters and magnificent marine life combine to create a water playground. Most resorts are located on their own island, many having beach, or over-water bungalows.

There’s little need to worry about your next meal - resorts providing an amazing variety at their table-laden buffets or from their à la carte menus. All you need do is relax and let the pleasures of the Maldives sweep over you as you enjoy the holiday of a lifetime! LANGUAGE AND RELIGION Language: Dhivehi, but English is spoken at resorts. Religion: Islam is the predominant religion. PASSPORT AND VISAS Each person must carry a passport with at least 6 months validity from the date of arrival into the Maldives. A 30 day visa will be issued on arrival. Asia Escape Holidays highly recommends checking all visa requirements with the appropriate embassies or consulates before making travel arrangements.  Alternatively, please ask your travel agent for more information. CLIMATE Tropical climate with a year-round average of 24- 30 degrees Celsius and with water temperature 27 degrees Celsius. Winter: May-October (wet and with storms Jun-Jul).

MALDIVES ACTIVITIES YOUR HONEYMOON The Maldives is a preferred destination for Australian honeymooners, the islands providing that idyllic sun-drenched lifestyle which is so conducive to total relaxation. A busy day’s schedule could have you waking late, enjoying a leisurely breakfast, sunbathing, swimming in the lagoon, snorkelling or scuba diving, enjoying an afternoon nap, then pre-dinner drinks followed by an enjoyable dinner. Of course, should you wish, there are numerous sporting activities and excursions to undertake and enjoy. Due to the local religion, couples from other countries cannot be legally married in the Maldives, however mock and renewal ceremonies can be performed.
