      Is it safe to walk in Male'? Traffic conditions in Male'

      by Chyan Online Now Aug 2, 2016 at 3:02 PM

      Is it safe to walk in Male' across the 2 km island, under the condition of traffic jams? Will the narrow roads of Male' allow a tourist to bring along a trolley luggage? Or is backpack preferred? Is it true that traffic jams in Male' last for hours from Orchid Magu to Alimas Carnival from morning to afternoon or only during peak hours before 8 am and after 4 pm?

      Flyme Villa Air at Orchid Magu opens only at 9 am. As i wake up three hours before Male' time is it advisable to walk to Sultan Park from Lvis Boutique Hotel if i leave the hotel at 7.30 am Male' time or grab a taxi?

      by Chyan Online Now Jul 23, 2016 at 6:06 PM

      Since the Maldives is in the risk of disappearing under rise of sea levels, will Male easily flood when there is a shower in the morning?

      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!
