One might assume that the Maldives is a luxury destination that costs a lot of money, while this is true, one can enjoy the Maldives on a budget too! The following are a few tips to help you plan your trip on a budget!
Budget travel is new to the Maldives
In general, tourism itself is quite new to the Maldives, since previously tourists were only allowed on resort islands. The government then changed the regulations, such that guesthouses were opened on the local islands, allowing visitors to experience the local life.
Although there aren’t any super cheap accommodation options, you don’t have to break your bank when booking accommodation. One option available for you is to splurge on one of the many resorts in Maldives, the likes of Niyama Maldives for a few days and opt for other accommodation for the rest of the days.
Transport is quite affordable in the Maldives, however, ferries run on infrequent schedules. If you want to get to a resort island, you’ll have to opt for a speedboat since the local ferries don’t stop at resort islands.
The best way to experience cheap excursions is to book it through your guesthouse or place of stay. However, compare the prices with what other guesthouses have on offer and choose the best on offer!
