Look up for once!
Despite the brightly saturated colors of daytime in the Maldives, take a night off and visit the beach. You are likely to be greeted by meditable calm water waves but for once, look up.
Hunger In The Maldives
Gordon Ramsey’s popular TV show “Kitchen Nightmares” features tonnes of diners, cafe’s and restaurants featuring an array of menus varying from themes and cultures.
