WHERE IS MALDIVES?
Maldives is an island nation in the Indian Ocean. The Maldive Islands lie south of India and south west of Sri Lanka.
The Maldives is made up of 1,190 coral islands and is a popular tourist destination for beach lovers and scuba diving enthusiasts. If you love the sea, you'll love Maldives. With about 90 islands in the Maldives developed as tourist resorts, you'll definitely be able to find a resort that you'll love.
The official religion in Maldives is Islam, it's good to do a little research on Islam before going so as to not offend the locals. The official currency is Rufiyaa but American Dollars and Singapore Dollars are well received.
Maldives time is GMT +5 in Male, however certain resort islands in Maldives might be in a different time zone from Male. Check your hotel's website for information on which time zone your resort island is in.
