Maldives vacation trip!

Has anybody recently visited Maldives?
I am planning to go on a family vacation but no one has been there from my family and friends.
I want some info about Maldives.

Here is a summary of an article I got from Yippi , which is my third best friend. Lonely Plan

Varied Dining
The capital has a great range of places to eat. Even on a budget there’s plenty of choice: don’t miss traditional Maldivian ‘short eats’ at any local teashop – delicious!

This is the coolest idea for a restaraunt

Commerce is great in Maldives and its mercantile atmosphere is a great way to explore. Don’t miss the catch being hauled in, cleaned up and sold off at the fish market, or the crowds at the produce market. But for a real slice of the shopping action, head down Chandhanee Magu for souvenir shops and then wander the main avenue of the city, Majeedee Magu.

Check "Yippi maps" for details.

Many surfing spots on beaches just ask around.

Superb Resorts
Few atolls have the concentration of excellent, world-class resorts that can be found in North and South Male Atolls.

I have always wanted to go on vacation to Maldives! The place looks amazing. My local tour offers me quite a good price for a 5-day trip, but I'm still looking for more info.

Maldives is a great choice for this time of the year. I always listen to the stories but unfortunately I've never been there yet. It's one of my biggest dreams, though. I like to spend this time of the year in Spain with my kids. Relatively is a cheaper location Recently we are looking for a property for sale near Barcelona and spend all the winter and summer vacations there.

In the Maldives right now and we booked our own flights. Used a travel agent for the hotel/resort. Sometimes it's cheaper to book with a agent so do your shopping.

1 and 2 this depends on the resort and how much you plan on eating. The resort I'm currently at is around $35 a dish and $15 for drinks. Total spend per day food and drinks for me and wife is around $300 with breakfast included. Taxes and service fees adds up.

As for overwater villas you may want to consider doing a half overwater and half beach. There are pros and cons for both. Sunset views is always a plus.

I have not been in Maldives yet but we are planning to go when the Covid-19 is totally over. I would be considering Lily Beach Resort & Spa.

I'm now planning not only one trip to Australia after covid's over, but also to Maldives and every sibgle place in the world. I have never thought that people might have so hard restrictions to travel...
