The Maldives is an island country in the Indian Ocean near the equator, south of India and Sri Lanka. It is the smallest country in Asia. It is made up of more than 1,200 small coral islands that are spread across the Indian Ocean from north to south. There are more than 200 inhabited islands, and currently more than 100 islands have developed resort hotels, making it one of the most popular destinations for tourism and vacationing.
The Maldives is located near the equator and experiences warm temperatures throughout the whole year. It is a tropical ocean monsoon climate with an average annual temperature of 30°C. The rainy season is May to October each year, and the dry season is from November to April. During the dry season, the Maldives is sunny and there’s plenty to do in the sea. The probability of encountering rainy days during the rainy season is relatively high, and due to stormy waves, travel plans could be interrupted. Maldives is popular with tourists all year round, but relatively speaking, the peak season for tourism is concentrated during the dry season from November to April. Hotels in the Maldives often raise their prices during this time. The off-season of the Maldives is concentrated during the rainy season; from mid-May to mid-July and from mid-September to early December. The weather is hot and there may be thunderstorms and heavy rains. The overall price of the off-season will be relatively low, and this time is also a good choice.
Malé Island, where the capital of the country is located, is home to a relatively small amount of hotels. The prices here are quite expensive, but compared to the Maldives’ island resorts, accommodation in Malé is still a lot cheaper. Hotels in Malé are generally built along the coast in the form of bungalows, and the blue sea and white sand beach are naturally not far from the rooms.
