There’s a lot more to the Maldives than over-priced and hermetically sealed, fancy resorts so we checked out the rest of the country! Charming little inns and guesthouses in local fishing villages; wonderful local food and super friendly inhabitants plus an unusual walking tour of unique Malé City, not forgetting of course your turquoise waters and vibrant coral reefs!
Was high time we revisited the delightful island to check what’s new, (and re-familiarise ourselves with their wonderful curries), so a complete revamp of our two new Sri Lanka tours plus a dedicated family option coming up very, very soon! Jeep safaris, local markets, cycling around ancient cities, whale watching and much, much more!
An earthquake measuring 6.8 struck Burma on 24th August with the epicenter being located close to the historic site of Bagan. Fortunately, despite widespread minor damage, no major destruction seems to have occurred and luckily casualties are also at a minimum. Note that Bagan is regularly affected by quakes and the various chedi summits and spires have been replaced several times before over the centuries.
