Male

— 2 nights
The tiny but densely populated city of Male represents a contrast to the laid-back beach resorts found in much of the rest of the Maldives.
On the 18th (Sat), admire the landmark architecture of Hukuru Miskiiy (Old Friday Mosque), discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and then take in the spiritual surroundings of Grand Friday Mosque. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 19th (Sun): hunt for treasures at Male Fish Market, then explore the galleries of National Museum, and then tour the pleasant surroundings at Hulhumale Beach.

To find where to stay, traveler tips, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Male online itinerary planner.

Columbia, USA to Male is an approximately 31-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 10 hours traveling from Columbia to Male. Traveling from Columbia in December, things will get much warmer in Male: highs are around 87°F and lows about 78°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 19th (Sun) so you can travel back home.

Maldives has come to be seen as a quintessential island holiday destination, with entire sand-circled islands owned by resorts, who manage each part of the island's environment to give it the look and feel of paradise. The clear waters surrounding the islands offer plentiful dive sites, rich in tropical fish and coral formations, with the smaller, less-populated islands surrounded by the richest marine environments, largely undisturbed by industry and tourism. Larger islands here offer an array of bars, restaurants, and clubs--their higher population means they also feature religious sites and markets selling local produce.
