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.
Male is known for shopping, wildlife, and historic sites. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, stop by Island Bazaar, and admire the landmark architecture of Hukuru Miskiiy (Old Friday Mosque).

To find more things to do, reviews, ratings, and tourist information, you can read our Male trip planner.

Chennai, India to Male is an approximately 7.5-hour combination of flight and ferry. The time zone changes from India Standard Time (IST) to Maldives Time (MVT), which is usually a -0.5 hour difference. Expect a daytime high around 36°C in October, and nighttime lows around 30°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Sat) so you can travel to Maafushi Island.
