Maldives Travelogue: Arriving In Malé!

Finally get my butt down into blogging about my Maldives trip from 16 Feb - 19 Feb 2014!

This entry is just a short snippet to my trip, I will be updating on the budget and itinerary in the next few posts!

Flight: Tigerair

Fare: est. $300+/pax 

16 Feb SIN  - MLE  4hr 45mins
19 Feb MLE - SIN   4hr 45mins

This is the longest flight I have taken apart from the 2 hrs flight to countries like Bangkok and Ho Chi Ming. So I had a really hard time occupying myself during the flight. Should have downloaded some interesting dramas or grab a good book!

But when we were about to arrive in Maldives, we were in awe at how awesome nature is! I'm totally not a beach person nor love the sea, but these views really makes it worth every minute I spent on flight! At least the first impression of the beautiful island is great!!!

You know in Singapore, our airport might be the no.1 in the world, but the views outside the airport is just roads, expressways, planes waiting to take off...

But in Malé...

We were greeted by clear water, so clear, you thought they are definitely safe for drinking! The little fishes seems like they are dancing to welcome you to PARADISE!!!

I don't know why my pose just seems funnier. Like a little girl finally get to see the sun after getting locked in tall tower's chamber for 20 years!

After a few good shots of indulgence, we took (btw, we were travelling with another couple, Baoling and Ong) a 30mins speedboat to our resort. The price to pay.. a whooping USD 180 per pax!

This speedboat is a prettier version (like 10X more luxurious) of the type of speedboat we were taking.
