  • Bananas for 3 euros a kilo on our money. We bought a bunch of 9 kg. With edible things be careful they can be bacteria, with whom our organisms have not met

  • The Local market, along with the fish market which is situated opposite this one, are one of the main points of interest of Male. I recommend going in the morning to see the go and come from the daily life of the locals. Many things to see, local fruits and some sweets.

  • Local market, located near fish market. Lot of different kind of fruits and spices for sell. Nice to see, but offers not much for tourist.  more »

Where to stay in Male

Due to the city's dense population, you may be hard-pressed to find spacious accommodations at any time of year in Male. If you're here in transit to one of the surrounding resorts, you may not be able to avoid Male's high prices, as transfers to the islands are generally only possible during daylight hours. The rooms in the hotels, bed and breakfasts, and guesthouses of Male are on the whole clean, if basic. For more affordable options head to the nearby isle of Hulhumale: a ten-minute boat ride away, this spot proves popular with backpackers.
