Just over 200 of the Maldives islands are inhabited including Malé, the capital of the country, which is nestled on turquoise waters and has a resolutely modern profile. A visit to the Maldives is an experience you must not miss because the people are hospitable and discreet. A visit to the national museum is great for holidaymakers who wish to know what to do in the Maldives in order to learn more about the history of this country which is spread over an incredible string of atolls. An outstanding collection of ancient objects will take you from the Buddhist era to the reign of Muslim monarchs.
Continue your tour of the Maldives by strolling between the colourful buildings of the city and admire the lovely reflections from the golden domes of the mosques. Stop by in a tea house after going through one of the traditional markets that have tall and colourful stalls. This Asian beverage is one of the favourite beverages on these atolls. Savour the local dishes at these choice destinations. Some of the delicacies that you can taste there include dried fish curry, spiced tuna pasta (rihaakuri), small balls of fish with ginger and coconut as well as raa, palm juice that is loved by Maldivians.
