MPD - safe, affordable & reliable
Crystal blue waters give way to a spectacular underwater world teeming with colourful coral reefs and incredibly diverse marine wildlife; its welcomed isolation, pristine beaches and stunning natural beauty make the Maldives a true paradise. Comprised of 1,192 islands, the archipelago is one of the most dispersed countries in the world. In terms of records, it’s the world’s lowest geographical country, the smallest in Asia in regards to land and population, and is consistently ranked as a premier travel destination.The country’s economy is driven by tourism – which accounts for nearly 30% of the GDP – and fishing. Over one million people, a 10th of whom are British, visit the Maldives each year. The country enjoys a long-standing and close relationship with the UK since it became a British protected state in 1887. Following its independence in 1965, the two have maintained bilateral cooperation in regards to economic, social and political development as well as strong commercial ties. The UK is the Maldives’ largest trading partner in the EU. Efforts to promote cultural exchange, as well as enhance UK investment, have led to well-established communication and reliable parcel delivery to the Maldives.
Located southwest of India and Sri Lanka in the Laccadive Sea, the Maldives is known as a world-class diving destination with luxury resorts and uncompromised beauty. The country’s islands are grouped into two chains of 26 atolls. Its population of 393,253 is dispersed on the 185 inhabited islands, the largest being the capital city of Malé. Many cities offer direct flights to Hulhulé Island’s Malé International Airport, including 12-hour flights from London.Travel throughout the country is possible by plane, seaplane or boat. On land, roads are primarily comprised of compacted coral. The tsunami of 2004 devastated the country causing damage to multiple islands and costing more than 62% of its GDP. However, reconstruction enabled the economy to recover quickly and efficient courier services to the Maldives to be re-established. The postal code system consists of five digits with the first two representing the atoll and the last three the zone. All post sent to Malé begins with the number 20.
Idyllic beaches, natural beauty and a distinctly warm and vibrant Maldivian culture provide an unforgettable experience to anyone who visits.
