Enchantment has to offer Maldives. Nature is beautiful with the sea so clear and blue. It turned out that the Republic of Maldives is located in the Indian Ocean, under Sri Lanka. In 2004, several islands in the Maldives is also hit by the tsunami. From Singapore, there are daily flights to the Maldives and eta 08:30 etd 22:30 (Maldives time 2 hours slower than Jakarta, with a flying time of about 4.5 hours). Male Airport, very simple.

Only consists of 2 parts ie ordinary airport runway and the airport with water for Seaplane. This airport is located on the island Hulule, about 2 km from the capital Jakarta Male.Bila out our airport taxi, so here we have to ride dhonny, motor boat to cross to Male.

After arriving at the new Jetty no taxis, no metered, so drop the MRF 15, - (Rufiyaa currency, of which USD 1.00 = MRF 12.75), at night or no baggage MRF 20, -.

Male city streets are very narrow and many of the motor, because the island is only about quite small with a population of nearly 150,000 people. Population in the Maldives alone about 300,000 people.

Maldives is made up of atoll islands which lie about 800km from north to south. Some consist of the resort, around the 80s, which is managed by international hotel chains such as Hilton, Fourseason and others.

Maldives sea view and beach is very beautiful, clear blue sea and some places we could see the bottom of the sea and the fish. For those who like diving, snorkelling, fishing, maybe this is an interesting place. I once asked diving package with a yacht, for a week around USD 1800-USD 3000.00 depending on the type of yacht and service.

Food here is heavily influenced India, such as curry. They used to eat with Rotti (like Parata, martabak thin) and tuna fish. Tuna fish and big fish are the main food.

Uniquely, they just take the meat. Meanwhile, the bone and its contents removed. Similarly, chicken, boneless. Only small fish used as bait fishing or maybe at the resort. If anyone could possibly make pempek Palembang skin
