MALDIVES
The Republic of Maldives is a gorgeous patch of nearly 1200 coral islands that makes the Laccadive Sea a heavenly place to be. Coral reef, lagoons and fabulously white beaches make it look like a piece of heaven on earth. And like all good things done to perfection this heaven may bite the dust soon or the water in this case.

You are looking at a country on level with the sea. It is flat with no mountains rising majestically on it. Its highest point on Vilingili Island is less than 10 ft. However, you can go under, as deep as 100 ft, to play with Sharks, Barracudas, Manta Rays, Turtles and Sweetlips.

The rising sea levels or the galloping waves of a tsunami can swallow this country whole and the government is already shopping for a new country though nothing will come as close to the paradise they are used to. The country's future is not too bright due to rising sea levels. May be because it is not too bright, every moment on its islands is bliss.

With no care for what is to come, the Maldivians indulge in luxury. Gorgeous resorts with water bungalows and villas, underwater restaurants, and state of the art diving excursions all make it an expensive holiday. The bill is probably the only thing that will dampen your spirits in what is otherwise a sunny holiday.

They hosted the prestigious Hay Literary and Art Festival recently. The cabinet, its ministers along with President Nasheed in diving suits and oxygen tanks, held a meeting underwater to draw awareness to Maldives' short life span. So you know you are in a country that does things in its own unique way.

While Maldives is one of the best beach and diving destinations in the world, it is not a party town. It is an Islamic country and alcohol is illegal. So are swimsuits. But you can have both only if you are in a resort.

The nightlife is tame but you can make up for it by going shopping. It has some lovely products that you can take back home. The handwoven mats, pretty boxes with lacquer work and dhoni models (traditional boat). If shopping does not do it, go for marine sports like surfing, scuba diving, snorkelling, night fishing, windsurfing and water skiing.

Follow it up with a good Maldivian meal which is mostly a variety of fish, Tuna being a favourite, and flavoured with coconut and curry leaves. Note the precise way in which they arrange the fish in their markets. Make sure the velvety stingrays don’t go hungry if you get a chance to feed them.

Let the exuberant dolphins accompany you as you ride a speed boat. Laze with the locals on easy chairs that are placed outside most houses. And take it all in, as you circle over it in a seaplane whose pilot takes the 'no news no shoes' policy seriously.

Destination Information

ABOUT THE TERRITORY:
The Republic of Maldives also referred to as the Maldives Islands, is an island nation in the Indian Ocean formed by a double chain of twenty-six atolls oriented north-south off India's Lakshadweep islands, between Minicoy Island and Chagos Archipelago. It stands in the Laccadive Sea, about seven hundred kilometers (435 mi) southwest of Sri Lanka and (250 mi) southwest of India. During the colonial era, the Dutch referred to the country as "Maldivische Eilanden" in their documentation, while "Maldives Islands" is the anglicized version of the local name used by the British, which later came to be written "Maldives”. This chain of islands is an archipelago located among the Lakshadweep-Maldives-Chagos Group, which are the tops of a vast undersea mountain range in the Indian Ocean and the Arabian Sea.

The Maldives is the smallest Asian country in both population and land area. With an average ground level of 1.5 meters (4 ft 11 in) above sea level, it is the lowest country on the planet. It is also the country with the lowest highest point in the world; at 2.3 meters (7 ft 7 in) the Maldives sinking is a great concern for the Maldavians people. Maldives nature has fragmented the archipelago into 1,190 tiny islands that occupy a mere one per cent of its 90,000-km2 territory. On the other hand some more islands are used entirely for economic purposes of which tourism and agriculture are the most dominant. Tourism accounts for 28% of GDP and more than 60% of the Maldives' foreign exchange receipts. Over 90% of government tax revenue comes from import duties and tourism-related taxes. The development of tourism has fostered the overall growth of the country's economy. It has created direct and indirect employment and income generation opportunities in other related industries. The first tourist resorts were opened in 1972 with Bandos island resort and Kurumba Village.

RELIGION:
Islam is the only official religion of The Maldives. The open practice of all other religions is forbidden and such actions are liable to prosecution under the law of the country. According to the revised constitution, in article two, it says that the republic "is based on the principles of Islam." Article nine says, "a non-Muslim may not become a citizen of the Maldives"; number ten says, "no law contrary to any principle of Islam can be applied in the Maldives." Article nineteen states that "citizens are free to participate in or carry out any activity that is not expressly prohibited by sharia or by the law."

With the exception of Shia members of the Indian trading community, Maldivians are Sunni Muslims; the importance of Islam in Maldives is further evident in the lack of a secular legal system. Friday is the most important day for Muslims to attend mosque, shops and offices in towns and villages close around 11 a.m., and the sermon begins by 12:30 pm.

The isolation of Maldives from the historical centers of Islam in the Middle East and Asia has allowed some pre-Islamic beliefs and attitudes to survive. Western anthropologist Maloney during his 1970s fieldwork in Maldives reports being told by a Muslim cleric that for most Maldivians Islam is "largely a matter of observing ablutions, fasting, and reciting incomprehensible Arabic prayer formulas." There is a widespread belief in jinns, or evil spirits. For protection against such evils, people often resort to various charms and spells. The extent of these beliefs has led some observers to identify a magico-religious system parallel to Islam known as fandita, which provides a more personal way for the islanders to deal with either actual or perceived problems in their lives

CULTURE:
Maldivian culture is derived from a number of sources, the most important of which are its proximity to the shores of Sri Lanka and South India. The culture of Maldives Island, as it reflects a blend of the many cultures that were brought by the seafarers, who settled in Maldives. The main religion followed here is Islam and people of Maldives are mostly Sunni Muslims. As far as the family life is concerned, men play the role of a bread earner and women take care of the house and kids. Maldivians are very hospitable and give a warm welcome to the visitors to their country. Their community is very close knit and people are very helpful. The architectural styles of their tombs and mosques exhibit the superb craftsmanship of Maldivians. People out here are very artistic and spend time in craft making. The beautiful Maldives is also famous for its exquisite craft products like lacquer work and woven mats etc. People also participate enthusiastically in folk music and dance performances. Today, Maldives boasts off its rich cultural heritage.

CLIMATE:
The Indian Ocean has a great effect on the climate of the country by acting as a heat buffer, absorbing, storing, and slowly releasing the tropical heat. The temperature of Maldives ranges between 24 °C (75 °F) and 33 °C (91 °F) throughout the year. Although the humidity is relatively high, the constant cool sea breezes keep the air moving and the heat mitigated.

The weather in the Maldives is affected by the large landmass of South Asia to the north. The presence of this landmass causes differential heating of land and water. These factors set off a rush of moisture-rich air from the Indian Ocean over South Asia, resulting in the southwest monsoon. Two seasons dominate Maldives' weather: the dry season associated with the winter northeastern monsoon and the rainy season, which brings strong winds and storms. The shift from the moist southwest monsoon to the dry northeast monsoon occurs during April and May. During this period, the northeast winds contribute to the formation of the northeast monsoon, which reaches Maldives in the beginning of June and lasts until the end of August. However, the weather patterns of Maldives do not always conform to the monsoon patterns of South Asia. The annual rainfall averages 2,540 millimeters in the north and 3,810 millimeters in the south.

The climate is warm and tropical. Seasonal changes are determined by the two yearly monsoons. The season of the northeast monsoon is characterized by dry, mild winds, and generally extends from December to April. The southwest monsoon, although irregular, extends from May until August and brings heavy rains and wind. The northern atolls are drier, while the southern atolls are wetter. The humidity is fairly high throughout the year.

LANGUAGE:
Maldivians culture is heavily influenced by geographical proximity to Sri Lanka and southern India.
The official and common language is Dhivehi, an Indo-European language having some similarities with Elu, the ancient Sinhalese language. The first known script used to write Dhivehi is Eveyla akuru script, which is found in historical recording of kings (raadhavalhi). Later a script called Dhives akuru was introduced and used for a long period. The present-day written script is called Thaana and is written from right to left. Thaana is said to be introduced by the reign of Mohamed Thakurufaanu. English is used widely in commerce and increasingly as the medium of instruction in government schools.
The major dialects of Maldividian are Malé, Huvadhu, Mulaku, Addu, Haddhunmathee and Maliku. The standard form of Maldivian is considered Malé, which is spoken in the Maldivian capital of the same name. The Maliku dialect spoken in Minicoy is officially referred as Mahl by the Lakshadweep administration.
Maldivian language is closely related to the Sinhala language. Many languages have influenced the development of the Maldivian language through the ages, most importantly Arabic. Others include French, Persian, Portuguese, and English. There are some Dravidian influences too. The English words atoll (a ring of coral islands or reefs) and doni (a vessel for inter-atoll navigation) are anglicized forms of the Dhivehi words Atoḷu and Dōni.
The language is of Indic Sanskritic origin, which points at a later influence from the north of the subcontinent. According to the legends, the kingly dynasty that ruled the country in the past has its origin there.

CUISINE OF MALDIVES:
Being an assemblage of several coral islands, it is pretty obvious that Maldives cuisine would consist of a wide variety of seafood. At the initial level, it was basically coconuts and fish that formed part of Maldives traditional food. It can be attributed to the fact that there was limited cultivation. Honey was extracted out of the coconut toddy and used as a replacement of sugar. The cooking style of Maldives is highly influenced by India and Sri Lanka.
