Male

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.
Family-friendly places like Male Fish Market and National Museum will thrill your kids. There's lots more to do: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, contemplate the long history of Mulee Aage, take in the spiritual surroundings of Hukuru Miskiiy (Old Friday Mosque), and let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour.

To find maps, more things to do, traveler tips, and tourist information, go to the Male tour itinerary website.

Kolkata (Calcutta), India to Male is an approximately 8.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from India Standard Time (IST) to Maldives Time (MVT), which is usually a -0.5 hour difference. Traveling from Kolkata (Calcutta) in December, expect Male to be a bit warmer, temps between °C and °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Mon) early enough to ride a ferry to Rasdhoo.
