Maldives

The Maldives is a nation of islands in the Indian Ocean. It is one of the most beautiful and luxurious destinations in Asia. The capital city, Malé, has a population of just over 100,000 people living among palm trees and beaches overlooking the Arabian Sea.

The country’s natural beauty attracts tourists from all over the world, who come to experience the Maldives’ white sand beaches, clear blue waters, and warm climate.

The Maldives is made up of 26 atolls, which are chaines of islands formed by coral reefs. These atolls are divided into two groups: the larger, more populated atolls in the north, and the smaller, less populated atolls in the south. The Maldives has a total land area of only 298 square kilometers, making it one of the smallest countries in the world.

Because of its small size and location near the equator, the Maldives has a tropical climate. The temperature is warm year-round, averaging about 27 degrees Celsius. The rainy season is from May to October, but even during this time the weather is usually sunny and dry.

The Maldives is an Islamic country, and Islam is the official religion. However, the constitution protects freedom of religion, and there are small numbers of Hindu and Christian residents on the islands.
