    • Male island or airport island before early flight

      Maldives Sep 17, 2015 at 11:18 AM

      I have a 9 a.m. flight out of the Maldives, meaning I will have to leave Ukalhas/Thooddo the day before. But should I spend my last night at Male Island or the airpost island? Male sounds most tempting, but will I get a ferry from there early in the morning? I think I would spend the last day exploring (if anything to see) or on the beach/by the pool. To be honest I do not really know what Male and airport islands have to offer.

      Or does anyone have suggestions how to leave Ukulhas or Thooddo during the night and still catch my Sunday morning plane? Private speed boat is not an option, I will go by shared speed boat or local ferry.

      Thanks from Lena

      Maldives Sep 23, 2015 at 8:21 PM

      Hi, I plan to go Maldives in Nov 2015 for 5 days.

      Arrival Time: 20.10pm (Tues)
      Departure Time: 20.55pm (Sat)

      I have no idea where I should stay. Any suggestions? My budget around USD110 to USD140 per night.
      Is it Enough? I might be travelling Alone, Is it safe & advisable for Solo female?

      I heard that there is no transfer to the island as upon my flight arrives? Where can I get cheaper transfer?
      I wanna gather more information before purchasing air-tickets.

      - Accommodation
      - Visa
      - Transfer to Island
      - Place of interest
      - Things to do
      - Minimum Budget Require

      I do not wanna overspend since I m alone.Overall Budget (exclude Air Fares & Accommodation) approximately USD1000 to USD1200. Is It enough for the whole trip?

      Since both arrival n departure time is in the evening, should I check out a day before?
      Please advice thanks.

      Hi experienced travellers, it is my first time travelling to Maldives, and didn't know that there is a hefty seaplane transfer from the airport to the hotel (USD420/pax) after I completed the transaction. Is there any cheaper option, like Express Ferry or etc? Thanks in advance.

      Transportation to Kandooma from Male

      by homa Online Now Oct 9, 2011 at 8:20 AM

      Hi VT-Members and Experts,

      I'm going to Maldives around Nov. this year and will stay at Holiday Inn Kandooma. I would like to ask whether there are other methods to get to the resort by myself? Since the resort-staff quotes me a price of USD183/person for the airport to resort transfer!
      Besides, my arrival time will be at about 2000 O'clock. Is that possible?

      Thank you in advance!!
      Happy travelling!
