Maldives: A marine paradise worth a visit

Unbeatable beaches, unmatched luxury and a breathtaking underwater world make the Maldives worth it all that endowed with incredible beauty and splendour of nature. With 1200 islands and 26 atolls, this island country holds a great allure for tourists across the globe for its exotic islands, enthralling blue seas, shiny-sandy beaches, magnificent reefs, and a variety of water sports.

Being an island country dominated by water sports, tourism in the Maldives is strictly relative to the dry weather conditions and hence the span of December to April is the best time to visit the island country.

The Maldives has also undergone drastic changes in the last 10 years and the inhabited islands have been made better and tourist-friendly.

Studded with luxurious water villas and endless palm groves swaying rhythmically, this postcard-perfect amalgamation of blue, white, and green is a true paradise on Earth.

For travellers and tourists from across the world, Maldives is often referred to as the ‘Paradise on Earth’.

The year 2019 had been a phenomenal year for Maldives Tourism with achieved targets and new milestones. For the first time the Maldives welcomed 1.5 million tourists and ended the year with over 1.7 million arrivals.

As such, the popularity of the island nation continues to grow across the globe each year. This is evident from the fact that even while enduring a global pandemic, the country was able to achieve its tourism targets. On December, merely 4 months since the borders re-opened following a nationwide lockdown, Maldives welcomed the 500,000th tourist visitor of 2020 to the island country.

The Maldives is going to celebrate the year of golden jubilee of its tourism industry.

With growing outbound travellers from Bangladesh, Maldives is one of the best choices for many nature lover tourists from Bangladesh. A large number of Bangladeshi tourists travel to the Maldives every year to witness the beauty and splendour of nature.

The Maldives is the home to around 150,000 Bangladeshis who work mostly in the construction and tourism sector of the country. With this benefit, Bangladeshi travellers get special hospitality while visiting places in the islands.
