General Information

WHEN TO VISIT
December to April – This is the dry season providing a little more time of sunshine and therefore the best time to pay a visit. Rooms at resorts however, are sold at a premium and are mostly booked to capacity. The Christmas-New Year period is the busiest and most expensive part of the high season.

May to November – Warm with cloudy skies. The air is more humid and rain is more likely. Identified as the low season, this period sees fewer tourists visiting the islands and therefore prices are also kept at an affordable level by Maldivian standards.

LANGUAGE
Dhivehi is the language spoken in all parts of the maldives. English is widely spoken by Maldivians and visitors can easily make themselves understood getting around the capital island. In the resorts, a variety of languages are spoken by the staff including English, German, French, Italian and Japanese and others.

ECONOMY
The Maldives economy has been growing at an annual average of 10% for the past two decades. Tourism is the main industry, contributing close to 20% of the GDP. Fisheries and trade follow close behind. The Maldivian economy is regarded as exemplary in the region and welcomes foreign investment.

CURRENCY
The Maldivian currency is the Rufiyaa. The exchange rate for US Dollar at the time of writing is MRf.12.85 for the dollar. Rufiyaa bank notes come in denominations of 5, 10, 20, 50, 100 and 500. Coins are in denominations of MRf.2.00, MRf.1.00, 50 laarees, 20, 10, 5, 2 and 1 laaree. The US Dollar is the most commonly used foreign currency.
