The tiny but densely populated city of Male represents a contrast to the laid-back beach resorts found in much of the rest of the Maldives.
Male is known for shopping, wildlife, and historic sites. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: hunt for treasures at Male Fish Market, see the interesting displays at National Museum, contemplate the long history of Mulee Aage, and admire the striking features of Hukuru Miskiiy (Old Friday Mosque).

To find where to stay, more things to do, ratings, and tourist information, read our Male trip maker.

Sydney, Australia to Male is an approximately 22.5- hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 5 hours traveling from Sydney to Male. Plan for a bit warmer temperatures traveling from Sydney in December, with highs in Male at 36°C and lows at 30°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Mon) so you can travel to Maafushi Island.
