The Maldives is often known for its picturesque scenery. But, did you know that it has a unique culture too that’s worth exploring?
Religion and beliefs
It’s a country governed by Islamic laws. This is why you are not allowed to consume alcohol or pork when you are in the Maldives. Do not forget to visit the beautiful mosques each island has.
Get yourselves prepared to enjoy plenty of tuna, snappers, and lobsters in their freshest forms during your days spent at Hard Rock Hotel Maldives. Maldivians have a unique cooking style, and you may sometimes find similarities of it with Indian, Sri Lankan, and African cuisine.
Music and Dance
If you opt for a good Emboodhoo Lagoon area guide (offered by some hotels), you get to experience a beautiful local scene. You’ll be able to enjoy ‘Bodu Beru’- a traditional performance in the Maldives and the locals will explain its importance as well.
Maldivian dressing style
Maldivian males wear the sarong and the white cotton shirt while the females wear the traditional Libba (a long dress). But, travelers are not expected to wear these traditional dresses when in the Maldives. But, dressing modestly is always encouraged.
