It’s like a dream for most people. Long white beaches. Clear water. Blue sky. Sunny weather. But then comes the cost of the vacation and the dream often stays a dream.

Fantastic place for snorkeling, island Biyadhoo

If you are tired of gray routine days, it's time for a change and bright colors. Maldives is a place with an abundance of blue sea, azure sky, white sand and green palms. And there is a lot of sea life, which is important for people like me… real snorkelers (snorkeling is swimming with a mask, snorkel and fins). Despite the corals in the Maldives, most atolls have already lost their true colors (due to warm currents and climate changes), the abundance of fish will definitely not let you get bored. And the warm sea makes snorkeling one of the […]

City escapade: Enjoy a slice of heaven at Maafushi in 8 unique ways

Situated on the Kaafu Atoll (also known as South Male Atoll) in the Maldives, Maafushi is a long, narrow island just forty-five minutes away from the Male international airport by speedboat, and packed full of fun, good food, amazing marine fauna and beautiful scenery.

With a myriad of extremely affordable guest houses […]

It was our first time to travel together outside our own home country – the Philippines since both of us are working in United Arab Emirates. We were able to get the package from our the […]

I just needed to know if it does have the alluring charm that we see in […]
