Maldives – The Sunny Side of Life - 4 Days

Maldives is home to perhaps the best beaches in the world; they’re on almost every one of the country’s nearly 1200 islands and are so consistently perfect that it’s hard not to become blasé about them. While some beaches may boast softer granules than others, the basic fact remains: you won’t find consistently whiter-than-white powder sand and luminous cyan-blue water like this anywhere else on earth. Maldives is a country of not only natural exotica but also of daily luxuries. Gorgeous resorts with water bungalows and villas, underwater restaurants, and state of the art diving excursions all make it a luxurious holiday. While Maldives is one of the best beach and diving destinations in the world, it is necessary to point out that alcohol is illegal in Maldives. But do not fret; you can have it in the resort where you would be staying.

Maldives are a series of ancient coral reefs that grew up around the sides of towering prehistoric volcanoes. These immense structures have long since sunk into the ocean, leaving behind coral islands of incredible natural beauty, now themselves being colonised by travellers seeking unbridled pampering and romance.

This is life stripped down to simplicity – bright blue skies, all-year sunshine and fantastic diving and snorkelling in lagoons the temperature of bath water. The country embraces travellers from around the world allowing them the freedoms holiday makers require without compromising the islands’ deep Muslim faith one bit.

This is an exciting time to visit a country in developmental frenzy. The Maldives demands the attention of anyone looking for a uniquely indulgent break, breathtaking nature and sheer beauty that stays with you long after your tan has faded.

Superior are its beaches, so cobalt blue its waters and so warm its welcome that the country has become a byword for paradise whether it be for honeymooners, sun worshippers or divers.

Places to Visit:

Male is the hands down winner with some lovely sights. If you can tear yourself away from its beaches, spend some time at the Sultan Park which was once part of the Royal Palace. It is a leafy haven you can retreat to, maybe under the shade of an ancient frangipani tree. At its entrance, you will see the Jumhooree Binaa. Two of the oldest mosques in Maldives are nearby, Kalhu Vakaru Miskiy and Dharumavantha Miskiiy.

Hukuru Miskiiy

Also known as the Grand Friday Mosque was built in 1656 in coral stone. It is the biggest mosque in Maldives. The steps leading up to it, the lacquer work and the carvings on wood are beautiful. Quran verses are etched on its walls. Don’t forget to peek into its well.

Kulhudhuffushi

Whale Submarine is a great way to see the reefs especially if you have kids in tow. The beaches in this country and the accompanying coral reefs are among the best in the world. And their classy restaurants promise you some great food and unforgettable experiences. Try the Ithaa Restaurant, Aioli, Seagull Cafe, Saffron Cafe and Symphony.

Swim with the sharks 

There are many species of sharks in Maldives. Grey reef Sharks, Whale Sharks, Zebra Sharks, Silvertip Sharks and Tiger Sharks are just a few of the friendly sharks that hang around the reef. They prefer planktons and tiny fish over humans, so you are safe.

Underwater photography can’t get any better with the sublime aquatic life that the reef brings into the picture. It is vivid, exotic and exciting. You can rent underwater cameras from most of the folks organizing diving expeditions and at dive schools.

Try night fishing in Maldives on a dhoni. Reel in your catch, have it cooked and eat it. Hail a sea plane. It is like a taxi. Well, almost. The aerial view of Maldives, a sulphur blue patch in the sea with a mop of green canopy, is impressive and a vision that stays with you always. Dine in the underwater restaurant, Ithaa restaurant, 16 ft down in the sea.

I visited Nepal in early 2015 for the Shishu Tours' Everest Base Camp trek. It was well organised, with a thorough briefing from Sonu before we started. The guides, led by Hari, were knowledgeable, friendly and skilled. They ensured everyone in the group was save and well looked after, as well as being informative, conveying a true sense of love and awe for the environment. The accommodation in Thamel was good and out on the trek it was as good a standard as could be expected. This was my second trip to the Everest region and I if I get the opportunity to go again, I would certainly consult with Sonu and her Shishu Tours team.read more

I hiked with a group of 11 people with the goal of Everest Base Camp. When I got to Namchee Bazaar, I had a lot of diarrhea and fatigue. I discussed with my head guide that I did not feel I had the stamina to continue to higher elevations. The head guide arranged for a porter to accompany me back to Lukla over the next 2 days. All arrangements for accommadations and flight back to Kathmandu were arranged by Shishu Tours. The rest of the group successfully went to Everest Base Camp. I am very grateful for the excellent adaptability of the head guide Hari to help my special situation. And I appreciated the help of my porter Krisha on the trip back down to Lukla. Shishu Tours did a great job with all the travel arrangements.read more

I can't recommend Shishu Tours enough. Throughout the trip, it really did feel like MY trip. Any extra/ side trips I wanted to make, any extra days I wanted - my guides were more than happy and quick to accommodate.read more

I have just returned from what I can only describe as a once in a lifetime opportunity to trek to Everest Base Camp. Thank you so much to Sonu who were my points of contact for the trek. When my flight got cancelled due to poor weather , Santosh did everything he could to get me to Lukla so I would not miss the trek and stayed at the airport with me until a helicopter was arranged. Sonu met me in Lukla and was a great porter and guide for the entire duration. He helped me get through my altitude anxiety and we made it to base camp on the most beautiful day ever. Santosh kept in contact with me the whole way and was very helpful advising me to drink lots of water, stay hydrated and not to sleep during the day ( all of which are very useful tips for the trek).Trusted his advice 100 percent especially since he has summited Everest. Thank you so much...Would love to do Annapurna in future perhaps !read more

It was my first time to Nepal, first time trekking, and a friend of mine recommended Shishu to me as she already went with them before so I did EBC trekking with them. From the minute they picked me up from the airport, I knew everything is gonna be alright. Guys were so cheerful and paid a lot attention to my needs. I felt like traveling with friends, we talked a lot, shared a lot, with the great view of Himalayas and delicious meals. This has been one of my best trip and not the last. Go with them and you won't regret!read more

We went to EB trek with Shishu Tours last November, it’s kind of surreal. In the middle of nowhere and then you come across this amphitheater of a town with coffee shops and bakeries. Most travel through it going north but it worth ha gong out for a couple of days. Go to the art shop and buy something special for yourself. So genuine and humbleread more
