It is generally warm and humid in
Maldives and the sun shines all year
through. Average temperature around 29 -
32 degrees Celsius.
Dress is generally casual. T-shirts and cotton clothing are most suitable. In
Male’, the capital island and other inhabited islands it is recommended that
women wear modest clothing without baring too much.
300,000 since 2006. Origin of the Maldivians is not known, but history
reveals that the islands have been populated for over 3,000 years ago. Early
settlers were travelers on the Silk Route and from the Indus Valley
Civilization. Inherently warm, friendly and hospitable by nature, it is easy to
feel comfortable and relaxed with a Maldivian.
A proud history and rich culture evolved from the first settlers who were from various parts of the world traveling the seas in ancient times.
The Maldives has been a melting pot of different cultures as people from different parts of the world came here and settled down. Some of
the local music and dance for instance resemble African influences, with hand beating of drums and songs in a language that is not known
to any but certainly represents that of East African countries. As one would expect there is a great South Asian influence in some of the
music and dancing and especially in the traditional food of the Maldivians. However many of the South Asian customs especially with
regard to women - for instance the Sub Continent’s tradition of secluding women from public view - are not tenets of life here. In fact women
play a major role in society - not surprising considering the fact men spend the whole day out at sea fishing. Many of the traditions are
strongly related to the seas and the fact that life is dependent on the seas around us
Dhivehi is the language spoken in all parts of the Maldives. English is widely spoken by Maldivians and visitors can easily make
themselves understood getting around the capital island. In the resorts, a variety of languages are spoken by the staff including English,
German, French, Italian and Japanese.
The Maldivian currency is the Rufiyaa and Laaree. The exchange rate for US Dollar at the time of writing is MRf.11.82 for the dollar. One
Rufiyaa is equivalent to 100 laarees. Rufiyaa bank notes come in denominations of 5, 10, 20, 50, 100 and 500. Coins are in the
denominations of MRf.2.00, MRf.1.00, 50 laarees, 20, 10, 5, 2 and 1 laaree. The US Dollar is the most commonly used foreign currency.
Payments in the resorts and hotels can be made in most hard currency in cash, travelers’ cheques or credit cards. Commonly used credit
cards are American Express, Visa, Master Card, Diners Club, JCB and Euro Card.
The Maldives economy has been growing at an annual average of 10% for the past two decades. Tourism is the main industry, contributing
close to 20% of the GDP. Fisheries and trade follow close behind. The Maldivian economy is regarded as exemplary in the region and
welcomes foreign investment.
The functional literacy rate is 98%. Educational standards in Maldives are among the highest in the region and schools follow the British
system of education.
Health care facilities in Maldives are improving almost on a daily basis. The Indhira Gandhi Memorial Hospital (IGMH) in Male’ is the
biggest hospital in the Maldives providing sophisticated medical care. ADK Hospital is the biggest private health care facility in Maldives
and follows high medical standards. Some resorts have in-house doctors. A decompression chamber is within easy reach of most resorts
of Maldives in case of a diving emergency.
Electricity The electric system is 230-240 Volts -AC
Business Hours From Sunday to Thursday 7.30 - 14.30 in the government sector and generally from 9.00 to 5.00 in the private sector,
