The Maldives is one of the top bucket list destinations in the world for many travelers. You may be dreaming of exploring the underwater world of the Maldives or sunbathing on soft, white sand beaches with views of endless turquoise water. However, most of what you see is fancy, expensive resorts that make it almost impossible for the average person. Luckily, there is another option allowing you to visit the Maldives on a budget!
Quite a few years ago the Maldivian government began to allow the citizens on the local islands to build and operate their own guesthouses. This not only helps build the local economy with more tourism to the local islands but also helps a larger group of people to travel to the Maldives and experience its’ beauty.
