Trip Report Mal-DIVING

Jump to last reply

Still have an hour or so before I have to even think of moving from my comfy "workstation" in the Premier lounge at Changi, so I might as well start a topic for my trip report. (Changi must be the only airport where "minimum transit time" is a complete irrelevance. Who'd want that?)

I'm on my way to the Maldives, for the first time, for a six day trip through the atolls. It should be interesting. The guy who arranged it (my dive instructor) chose this time of year because it's the best time to see mantas.

So, why am I going via Singapore? Well, Thai Airways doesn't fly to Male, and Bangkok Airways only flies there a few days a week, so it was either fork out a lot of money for two extra nights in a hotel; or fly via Columbo, which didn't seem like such a good idea way back when I booked the tickets; or fly via Singapore on Singapore Airlines. Since I get miles for flying Singapore, it seemed like the best option, and I think it still worked out less than what it would have cost me if I flew Bangkok and stayed a couple of extra nights.

I doubt the boat has wi-fi, so I probably won't be able to update this report until I'm on my way back to Bangkok.
