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 Hulhumale Mosque are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll get in some beach time at Hulhumale Beach and Artificial Beach. There's lots more to do: browse the eclectic array of goods at Male Fish Market, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, admire the striking features of Hukuru Miskiiy (Old Friday Mosque), and walk around Sultan Park.

To find where to stay, more things to do, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Male trip itinerary planning tool.

Cairo, Egypt to Male is an approximately 14-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Eastern European Standard Time (EET) to Maldives Time (MVT) is 3 hours. Traveling from Cairo in October, plan for somewhat warmer nights in Male, with lows around 30°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Wed) so you can 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.
