What to pack for a perfect vacation in the Maldives?
Hurray! A vacation at the island paradise. A perfect vacation to get away from your daily routine. But hold yourself, your vacation might go in ruins if you forget your swimsuit! Here is the tips and tricks you need for pacing your stuff.
So I’m assuming that you’ll remember to bring the absolute essentials such as your passport, visa and insurance documents. Never even try forgetting these or you might have to live a nightmare through your vacation.
So here are the essential tips;
# Tip 1 : Pack lightly.
You could pack all your clothes, wait no. The local sea plane only allows you to carry 25kg and will charge for any extra weight. You never want to pay for your luggage with all your money,
do you? The key is to be minimalistic. It’s a tropical destination after all. Few of your favorites will do.
# Tip 2: Dress Conservatively
The Maldives is a Muslim country where a lot of women will cover their head with a scarf or a burka. So it is respectful to dress conservatively, particularly around the airport, the capital and
when visiting the local islands. But no worries, when it comes to the resorts you can dress freely as it’s all guests all around. So a large scarf and a pair of loose pants are essentials to pack before you fly to this tropical heaven.
# Tip 3: Enjoy the sun without getting burned
The sunny side of life is in fact very sunny. Almost all year the Maldives is blessed with a huge splash of sunlight. So forgetting your glasses at home might be a big mistake. So make sure that
they are in the bag. Your eyes will never forgive you if it’s not. Also never forget to carry a bottle or two of sun tan lotion with you. You might regret getting sunburned.
Your holidays could be more fun if you bring all the things you need with you! So pack smart!
# Tip 4: Take a dry bag ( or two )
If you’re planning to travel a lot through the country or to scuba dive, a dry bag is a must. Keeping your clothes and other properties safe and dry should be a priority.
# Tip 5: Underwater camera
What if it’s your day 2 of the stay and you’re about to dive off, but camera to shoot those underwater sceneries. An underwater camera is a must to carry into the Maldives.
# Tip 6: Smart clothing
Bikinis and shorts are essentials. But when you pack for a perfect vacay you should pack smart. The Maldives is hot country, you should look cool through the heat. Natural fabrics are important when it comes to clothes. Also light colors could help you with the sun. Girls! When packing for the Maldives, fill your suitcase with loose, easy dresses that you can throw on over your bikini.
When it comes to guys it’s even easier, few shorts and whites would almost be it! Also a hat or two could come in handy.
# Tip 7: Don’t forget the insect repellent
As it’s a tropical country there are a lot of insects, especially mosquitos. So a bottle or two would do I guess!
# Tip 8: Small notes for tipping
I often forget this when I travel. It’s nice to carry small notes so you could carry the servicemen. Maybe a waitress after dinner or your room cleaner. A small tip always puts a smile on them.
# Tip 9: A sturdy luggage
It’s quite important to pack all your valued items in a sturdy luggage.
# Tip 10: Swimwear to swim in
The Maldives come with a lot of watersports and amazing pools, you don’t want to miss your swimsuit while packing.
