The Maldives, nature’s wonder with pristine blue water, clear blue skies, and the warm tropical temperature is a hit among tourists and travellers worldwide.
However, as coronavirus stuck the entire world, one of the countries that suffered the most is this island nation which is dependent on tourism and suffered a lot, however, as things are coming back on track, Maldives is now open to tourism and noting down all the covid-19 regulations that are needed to be followed, I planned my visit to this beautiful nation.
The Maldives now requires a covid-19 test report that is needed to be taken 96 hours before landing and during my 2nd anniversary week, I planned my visit here checking the travel updates for every few hours.
When the D-Day arrived for which I had booked my flight, covid19 tests taken, and the place of stay is booked, I was excited as a year of no travel was soon ending. As a frequent traveller, yes, this is what I looked up to, and from the time I left my home, it was an exhilarating feeling.
