The Best Moments in Maldives as solo female traveler ( Mafushi, Male, Vilingili, and Hulhumale)
Welcome to my youtube channel. I'm a Muslimah solo Traveller who loves to travel and adventure in my own way. I travel with the student backpacker budget.
Traveling always inspires me more to see the beautiful world with my own eyes, meet genuine people where infinite kindness of strangers exists in this world, taste different local foods, learn the beautiful languages and experience the different cultures.
Maldives is a peaceful country with beautiful beaches and islands, an Islamic country, and Maldivians are very friendly.
I decided backpacker to Maldives when I got tickets promotion USD 101 for two ways from Kuala Lumpur -Maldives (velana airport) -Kuala Lumpur.
Maldives was my dream country, I thought it was not easy to make it became true as the budget specifically for student backpacker like me. The accommodation in Maldives is also affordable for backpackers from the price of USD19.11 when I booked with Airbnb. Here is my invitation for you guys to give you up to US$ 40 for your first trip using Airbnb.
I can also feel like a local when I stayed with Maldivian family in Maldives from couchsurfing.com, from them I learned a lot about the life of the Maldivians, the Maldivians language, Maldivian traditions, and cooked traditional Maldivian food. Maldivians are very friendly and genuine. I felt like stayed with my own family there. So thankful for them to be a part of my journey in Maldives.
The basic language of Maldivian,
Assalamualaikum : Halo! (Peace be unto you)
Haluu kihineh? : How are you?
Aan : Yes
Noon : No
Shukuriya : Thanks
Kon nameh kiyanee? : what is your name?
Ma-aafu kirey : Sorry
Dhanee : Goodbye
Maldives is also very safe for solo travelers.
What I like most is the food, eating at the edge of the beach with waves, ocean's smell, enjoying crystal clear water, white sand and golden sunset orange bounce on the surface of the sea. This is an unforgettable experience in Maldives. the food is also quite affordable for backpackers. In Male I found affordable food from the price of USD 5, at Mafushi, Vilingili, and Huhumale the price of food is from USD 10.
Transportation in Maldives.
My trip was in Maldives, Velana Airport - Mafushi - Male - Vilingili - Hulhumale.
From Velana Airport, You can use two alternatives with a direct ferry from Velana airport to Mafushi around USD 20-25 or a local ferry Velana-Male ticket ferry around USD 1 drop at the jetty 1 then grab a taxi to jetty ferry Mafushi with fee USD 2, ticket local ferry from male to Mafushi around USD 3. This is the link for the timetable local ferry arena-lodge-maldives-Maafushi-south-male-atoll / ferry /.
In Mafushi you can book many activities: a daily tour to a private bungalow around USD 110 / pax, water sport, etc.
You can spend 2 days to enjoy the tourist attractions in Mafushi.
Male is the capital of Maldives, in Male you can visit the National Museum, the Friday Grand Mosque, the Local Male Market, the Victory Monument, the Tsunami Monument, Jumhooree Maidhaan, Sultan Park, Rasfannu, Souvenir shops, and Watersports.
Vilingili is a local island that is very near from Male, the ticket ferry about USD 1, Vilingili has a nice view of the beach and water sport.
Hulhumale is one of the busy city in Maldives after Male, now it is very easy to visit it from Male with Male -Hulhumale bridge. Velana airport is also located in Hulhumale. Things to do in Hulhumale: Dune Maldives Diving Center, Hulhumale mosque, Hulhumale beach, Hulhumale park, and water sport.
Maldives beaches also famous with Bioluminescent Plankton if you're lucky. you can see it between June and October. (
Happiness is not about getting what you want but enjoying and gratitude what you have.
