The Maldives

The Maldives are one of the world's most amazing destinations. Located in the Indian Ocean it is high on people's list for a dream vacation. 

To visit the Maldives is a bit of a trip but up until the 1970's it wasn't a known destination with western travelers. Despite the chain of islands being a popular destination during the winter one of the best times to visit is from May thru November. 

Keep in mind Monsoon season is also something that will affect your travel plans, the chain of islands (1,190 in total) the capital of the Maldives, the bustling city of Male', has many things to do such as visiting the National Museum. For diving enthusiasts there are opportunities to go shark diving or laying on a beach and what the sunset (or sunrise)

The Maldvies is also thought to be one of the most expensive destinations in the world but there are actually ways to save money.
