Maldives travel tips
Dress modestly on inhabited islands
It is the local custom that women must cover their legs and shoulders, while men must wear long pants instead of shorts. Topless bathing suits and bikinis are strictly banned outside non-resort islands. The resorts have tourist-friendly rules, where you are free to wear a swimsuit.
Remove shoes before entering a mosque or home
It is necessary to enter barefoot in a mosque. Even in residential areas remove shoes outside as a sign of courtesy. If you are confused then look around and see what the locals do before they enter a home and follow or take their friendly advice.
Choose souvenirs carefully
The local crafts are designed from turtle shells or coral. You can purchase them on the islands but exporting is illegal. Therefore choose souvenirs that you can carry back home or at the airport, you will be asked to leave them.
Bring lots of sunscreens
