1. Go find yourself a guidebook or two.

2. At the top of this page is a drop-down menu. Choose Maldives and all of the posts about the Maldives will be listed. Read both planning threads and trip reports.

3. Be aware hat the maladies are very expensive. This might be a better trip after you have worked a year or two. SO think about what you want form this trip. There may be places you could go that are less expensive to meet the same goals.

4. Once you have done some research, come back and ask specific questions. That is the beltway to utilize this forum.

Happy planning!

This sunny response ignores the turbulent political situation in the Maldives, going from crisis to crisis. I have no first-hand experience but have read that tourism has traditionally been kept separate from the home society, in part because of the expense. Maybe you can take comfort in that division and I make no suggestion that visitors are in any peril. But some time on Google will increase your knowledge. For instance, here are some events this year as collected by Wikipedia:

PS: Several other island nations in that part of the Indian Ocean with tourism infrastructure: Mauritius, the Seychelles. Or on the Indian subcontinent, Goa, the former Portuguese colony now a part of India.
