Male

— 2 nights
The tiny but densely populated city of Male represents a contrast to the laid-back beach resorts found in much of the rest of the Maldives.
National Museum and Grand Friday Mosque are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll get in some beach time at Hulhumale Beach and Artificial Beach. Step out of Male with an excursion to Hulhumale Mosque in Hulhumale--about 56 minutes away. There's lots more to do: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, browse the eclectic array of goods at Male Local Market, walk around Sultan Park, and admire the striking features of Hukuru Miskiiy (Old Friday Mosque).

To find where to stay, reviews, photos, and more tourist information, you can read our Male trip planning site.

Cairo, Egypt to Male is an approximately 32-hour combination of car and flight. The time zone difference when traveling from Cairo to Male is 3 hours. Traveling from Cairo in October, plan for somewhat warmer nights in Male, with lows around 30°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.

Maldives has come to be seen as a quintessential island holiday destination, with entire sand-circled islands owned by resorts, who manage each part of the island's environment to give it the look and feel of paradise. The clear waters surrounding the islands offer plentiful dive sites, rich in tropical fish and coral formations, with the smaller, less-populated islands surrounded by the richest marine environments, largely undisturbed by industry and tourism. Larger islands here offer an array of bars, restaurants, and clubs--their higher population means they also feature religious sites and markets selling local produce.
