General advise to visitors is to carry back all possible plastics you carry during 

your Odyssey to the Maldives as recycling options are very limited and challenging in this isolated nation. 

This is one of the few countries in the world which practices sustainable fishing: a method of fishing done by using pole and line where one fish caught at a time instead of using ghost nets. 

Maldivian Fishing


It is believed that Maldivian race is the result of several waves of settlement from various parents of the Indian subcontinent and thousands of years of interactions of people of different races and ethnicities that crisscrossed in the Indian Ocean over several centuries. 

With its own language which is called Dhivehi, English is considered as secondary language and majority of the common population understands, speaks, reads and is able to write English.

According to the census data from 2022 indicates that 132,371 are foreigners and 382, 751 as Maldivians which makes 515,122 as estimated population. 

Maldives Connectivity and MaldivesOdyssey


Even though majority of the islands are separated by ocean in between them, Maldives is very well connected with other countries via air transportation carriers. 

Several flights from Europe, Middle East, South East Asia operated to the Velana International Airport (main international airport). 

Once you are in the country, you can travel to any domestic airport via domestic carriers, and there is a daily flight frequency between these airports and international airport.
