More to see in Male Atoll
North Male Atoll is probably the only place on the Maldives where you can actually do shopping in its true sense. There are almost no stores on «holiday islands», however, Malé – the capital – is perfect for people walking around shops looking for peculiar souvenirs, clothes, etc. So, do like the local population and go shopping in the night time when it’s already not that hot. Most stores work until 10 p.m., some of them even till 11 p.m. Besides, you can start your shopping as soon as you arrive at the airport. There is a great duty-free zone here with small stores offering a decent choice of items: clothes, food, alcohol, sweets, perfumes, bags, books, guidebooks, postcards. You can also buy a local SIM card, a detailed map of the island and some tiny mementos there. Concerning electronics, it’s better to get it in the town. If you’re looking for some special items, we would recommend you go to all the shops in Malé the majority of which are located on Chandhanee Magu Street, also known as Singapore Bazaar. It’s not like a typical bazaar, it’s more like a bunch of small shops and stores. And still, you can bargain everywhere in this place. There are no fixed prices; you can easily make a price three times lower if you know how to do it right. By the way, you can bargain even in duty-free. It’s a fantastic way to save some money, so try it. The most useful goods are sun creams, glasses, swimming suits, and beach footwear … Read further
