If you carry an underwater camera with you, you’ll be able to capture these precious moments. 

Traditional cuisine

The traditional cuisine of Maldivians is famous for its three main items and their derivatives: coconuts, fish and starches. Maybe you’ve already heard that tuna is one of the essential ingredients in many dishes as well. They use different curries and a layered flatbread made from maida flour, called parotta.  They also often serve delicious savory snacks known as Masroshi, and they are totally worth trying. The spices they use might be different, but fish is mostly the main ingredient, so you’ll rarely have a chance to try a meal not containing a certain type of fish. If you like it, you’ll also love their traditional cuisine. 

The capital 

To enrich your experience of this destination, you should definitely visit the capital Malé. It has a busy fish market, but it’s also abundant with terrific restaurants and shops on the main road. Once you’re there, you’ll also have a chance to take a walking tour and have a language Dhivehi lesson. You will also be able to experience private cooking and learn a thing or two about Islamic culture. You can buy some made-in-Maldives coconut lip cream and enjoy their beautiful mosques. You’ll like their narrow streets and new and old apartment blocks, office buildings and motorcycle jams. Whatever you decide to delight in, keep one thing in mind – dress casual-conservatively. Learn more about the dress code before you go.
