Most of the 2,500 people who answered (23.9%) preferred the Maldives, the low-lying, threatened island-kingdom to the west of the southern tip of India.
We’re guessing that most people who voted had visions of bungalows on poles in the turquoise water, diving amongst colourful fish, white beaches under swaying palms and spectacular fruit drinks.
The Maldives are a charter destination during the winter season. The country is Muslim; meaning that no alcohol is served outside the hotels and that any alcohol brought into the country is confiscated on arrival and given back when leaving the country.
The currency is called Rufiyaa and is worth almost 70 Öre. FOREX Bank recommends US Dollars in small denominations when in town and credit cards for payments for extra purchases at your hotel.
