Pls suggest cheap hotels and tour package for solo women
If you're planning to come to Male', i do not recommend it. All you can see is traffic and congestion. I recommend Hulhumale, you can take the bus from the airport to get there. There are hotels at beach locations.
Hi Aneeqa and welcome to the forum.
In the "Top Questions on The Maldives" section on the right hand side of the forum home page on the main site you'll find a two part thread titled "Can we visit the Maldives on a Limited Budget". This thread contains lots of information and I'm sure will be a help in your search.
You mention Male, but the Capital City really isn't a tourist destination. It's a very busy, very built up city and many members say that it's "sights" as such can be seen in just a couple of hours and don't recommend staying any longer. Most visitors to The Maldives arrive at Velaana International Airport (MLE) which is located on a separate island to the capital, and transfers to private resorts depart direct from this island, which is called Hulhumalé.
Many travellers on a budget opt to stay on a "local" or "inhabited" island where Maldivian people live and work. This is a very different option to a stay on a private resort island as sharia law applies and you won't find the picture postcard views and beaches many associate with The Maldives. It is however becoming an increasingly popular way to experience the country and local island tourism is certainly gearing up to meet the increasing demand.
It is important to be aware that Sharia Law applies on local islands. This means that a dress code must be adhered to and that swimwear/beachwear can only be worn in areas designated as "bikini beaches". Alcohol and pork are forbidden too.
As mentioned above your budget will likely dictate whether your budget a consider a resort or local island stay. If you wish to share with us your budget per night for your accommodation members will be happy to guide you and to offer suggestions for your solo trip.
