  • Absolutely True Maldivian traditional market that you should visit to know them personally. It's local and wet market so expected wet, smelly, and crowded. This is consider the place that you may enjoy the locals. Most of them speak English very well and tourist are welcome and you won't had any problem at all. They welcomes you nicely and do share what they have to offer or to show you what is Maldivian is all about. Walking distance from main jetty connected airport and the city. Easy walk tour in this place. Get your local guide to know more about it. There's the stingray point next to it that you may enjoy extraordinary view of these creatures. Cheap coconut drinks too compared with any island that you have visited. Great to do your here after your few days in isolated and super calm island stay. Worth visit.
  • One of the most famous tourist attractions in Male, the fish market is the heart and soul of the city. Though there is nothing special about the place as it is only a local market, it holds great importance for being the bread and butter to many dhonis. You get to see the daily activities of the fishermen and salesmen. Also, if you love eating seafood then grab your hands on tuna and other fresh fishes you see. Surprisingly, the market is all clean with a hygienic environment.
