Aside from its pristine beaches and magnificent corals,
Another way to enjoy the Maldives and its wonderful culture would be shopping
Shopping in the Maldives would depend on your island location. Each resort would definitely have souvenir shops or boutiques where you can find the local items or clothes. But, the absolute shopping experience could really be found in the island capital of Male. Shopping in resort boutiques in the Maldives may be a bit costly than the local market sellers but it would be a more convenient shopping location. Although, traveling to other islands may give you the chance to buy local handicrafts such as woven mats, jewelry boxes, and sarongs. Shopping around the capital would really gratify your Maldives shopping experience. Everything could be found in Male, from clothes to perfume, jewelry and cosmetics, electronics, local fishes, and even imports from Singapore. In the local market, you could find local products from the atolls. It is a perfect place to sample the local fruits and homemade bottles of pickles and sweets. The Majeedhee Magu is a shopping alley located on the main road running from east to west while on the other hand, the Chaandhanee Magu runs from north to south. The Majeedhee Magu has various shops where you can find virtually everything you could ever with great varieties of clothes, watches, handbags, and perfumes. Shopping for souvenirs would be excellent in the Chaandhanee Magu, where you would find a vast array of gifts and souvenirs such as the Thudu Kuna, which is a Maldivian mat woven with natural fibers and the miniature wooden Dhonis, or Maldivian sailboats.
