The Male Tour is unique. Male must rank amongst the smallest capital cities of the world. Explore the streets of this tiny and unique island city through a guided tour by experienced local tour guides. Watch the fisherman unload their catch at the bustling local fish market or wander the aisles of the colourful Maldivian consumable products at the local market. Learn about the history and culture of the Maldives by visiting places of interest in the city. Although Male is not the shopping capital of the world, you will find plenty of enthusiastic vendors keen to show you around their souvenir shops.
Sightseeing & Shopping
The Maldives is a country rich in culture, history and tradition. And in order to experience life as it is known in these islands, Bandos offers you a variety of excursions to both the capital and adjoining islands.
One of the most densely populated islands anywhere in the world, with over 103,000 people on a 2.5 square mile island, Male, the financial, administrative and cultural capital has a number of historic and religious sites that merit visiting. Equally interesting would be to take a walk in the narrow lanes and witness the hustle and bustle as shopkeepers, fishermen, civil servants and businessmen all go about their daily business. The fish market on the waterfront and the local fruit and vegetable market are also places that would prove to be interesting.
Male is an island definitely worth visiting. The Island Hopping excursions available from Bandos will allow you to visit a local inhabited island and nearby resort islands to give you a taste of what island life is like in the midst of the Indian Ocean.
