Maldives; South Asia’s Hidden Gem

Why You Should Visit Maldives

Maldives are located in the middle of the Indian Ocean. So, what are Maldives? It is a collection of some of the most beautiful islands in the world. Maldives are made up of over one thousand beautiful islands, which means that there is a lot of beautiful isolated destinations where travelers can enjoy some private time with their family and friends. So, if you are under a lot of stress, this is the place to escape from all of it! 

Are you planning on visiting Maldives in the near future? If you are, then I must congratulate you! Here are some of the reasons why you definitely should not change your mind. 

 Amazing Scenery 

As I already said just a couple of minutes ago, Maldives are made up of over one thousand beautiful. Each one of those islands offers some amazing scenery. Stunning sand beaches and beautiful peaks on the interior of each island are just some of the most beautiful things that you can see in this amazing place.  

There are many travelers out there who say that the best moment occurs at one specific period each and every night, and that period is when the sun sets over the beautiful Indian Ocean. Having a cold juice in your hand can only make this view even better! 

 Luxurious Accommodations 

Although there are many budget accommodation options, most of the resorts in Maldives are pretty luxurious, which basically means that they are pretty expensive as well. Exclusive guest patios, modern amenities, and large suites are just some of the things that can be found in most of the hotels and resorts in Maldives. You can also find spas and onsite dining, as well as fitness facilities in every resort – both larger and smaller – in this beautiful place. 

 Delicious Food 

When it comes to dining in Maldives, there are three options for you to choose from – affordable local meals in the rural areas, dining in the cities Addu and Male, and more expensive meals in the resorts. Although most travelers stick to the third option (which means that they really enjoy eating more expensive meals in the resorts), the first one is much more affordable, and it is a great way to try different types of food (such as kulhi borkibaa and riha curry) as well. 

 

Water Recreation 

Snorkeling and scuba diving are two of the most popular activities in Maldives. And when compared to other exotic places, scuba diving in Maldives is very safe. Another activity that is very popular in Maldives is surfing, and most of the resorts offer group classes as well. And don’t forget about kayaking, rock climbing, and canoeing! Each one of these three activities is very popular in this beautiful place as well.

Barcelona- Spain’s Treasure

Nightlife in Barcelona

Every country has its own culture, and its own traditions as well. Not only that this applies to every country in the world, but almost every city as well. This is especially true when it comes to Barcelona. 

 Barcelona is a beautiful city, and there is something going on every single night. In fact, this city is filled with outdoor discotheques, relaxing lounge bars, and hip clubs. More than 500 bars, cocktail bars, music bars, clubs, and nightclubs can be found in Barcelona. 

 What this means is that there is something for everyone. Also, these places are not hard to find at all – they are actually all over the city. However, keep in mind that the coastal area of Barcelona is the best area for having fun in this beautiful city. For people who live in Barcelona, Thursday evenings are actually Student Nights, and they are considered to be the best evenings of the week. 

 The reason why is because a big number of discotheques offer a free entrance, as well as free drinks. If you are interested in having fun in this city, there are some things that you need to keep in mind at all times. And now, here are some of those things. 

Prices 

When it comes to going to nightclubs, the average price that you will need to pay is around $18. For this amount of money, some night clubs offer one or two free drinks. However, some clubs will allow you to enter for free if you give them a call before actually arriving at the address. 

And when it comes to drinks, the average price that you will need to pay is between $7 and $19. As you can see, nightlife in Barcelona can be pretty expensive sometimes. 

Making Nightlife in Barcelona Less Expensive 

But what if I told you that you can make it a little bit less expensive? That’s right! By enrolling yourself on a guest list, you will be able to enter some clubs for free. Barcelona is a beautiful city that is full of many different types of bars where you can see some good, fun shows. And there is one more thing that you can do to make nightlife in Barcelona a little bit less expensive, and that is to use a public transport – such as metro. 

 

Dress Code 

What the dress code in Barcelona really depends on is the place that you are going to visit. In some nightclubs, there is not a lot of rules, which basically means that everyone can do whatever they want. However, there are some premium clubs – such as Opium or Sutton – that don’t really approve this type of behavior, which means that there are some rules that you need to follow.
