按潜水选择 马尔代夫是世界三大潜水圣地之一,有 “精彩在水下”的说法。潜水爱好者一生 当中应该到马尔代夫体验一次清澈如明镜 的海水。每个度假岛屿中都有潜水学校, 除安排一般的潜水课程外,同时提供租借 潜水器材的服务。 潜水课程深入浅出,初学者只要租借


一副浮潜用具便可窥得水中美丽的浮游群 落,有时甚至不用下水,站在岸上也可以 看到清澈如镜的海水中游弋的热带鱼。已 具潜水资质的游客,到了这儿更是如鱼得 水,水肺潜水课程从初级的潜水入门(礁 湖潜水),到进阶的套装潜水、团体潜水 都安排了不同天数的课程,适合您根据自 己的时间进行挑选。 如果是水肺潜水,也就是深潜,主要


是对岛屿潜水点的考虑。马尔代夫绝大多 数酒店都可以浮潜,所以如果你不会潜 水,也对潜水不怎么感兴趣的话,可以不 考虑这一项。潜水一定要找酒店预约正规 的设施,安全第一。 最适合深潜的岛屿:Meeru(多达50


个潜水点),BAROS,满月岛,双鱼岛 (潜水学校),Lily Beach,太阳岛(潜水学 校),REETHI Beach,皇家岛(潜水学校), VADHOO Diving Paradise,白沙岛。


按SPA选择 其实,马尔代夫之旅本身也就是个完完


全全的SPA之旅,一切都和清澈的海水有 关,一切都是为了惬意的放松,一切都是 为了感受自然带来的和谐与舒畅。

A Hidden Paradise T


Travel to the Maldives, a total relaxation Spa journey, immerses you in a harmonious setting filled with picturesque islands and turquoise ocean. By Fifi Kao


he Maldives was formed as a Sultan- ate in 1153, then the European colo- nial powers arrived in the 16th century


and took over much of the trade of the Indian Ocean. First came the Portuguese, then the Dutch, and the French occasionally meddled with local politics. But such issues ended when the Maldives became a British Protectorate in 1887 and the Maldivian monarchs were granted a reasonable measure of self-governance. The Maldives gained total independence in 1965 and on November 11th, 1968 the Republic of Maldives was established. It has always been known as the greatest


fairyland of the Indian Ocean, but it experi- enced a military coup in February, 2012 when the President, Mohamed Nasheed, was forced to resign from his presidency under disputed circumstances. The event has had little impact on tourism. The Maldives are an archipelago of 1,192


coral islands grouped into 26 atolls that include 200 inhabited islands, of which 80 have tourist resorts. They lie south-southwest of India and are considered part of Southern Asia. In recent years, Chinese tourist flights to the Maldives for vacations have grown in number incredibly fast due to the exotic scenery. In 2011, the num- ber of Chinese tourists in Maldives exceeded 198,000 person-trips, up 67% over the previous year. Thousands of Chinese tourists traveled to the Maldives during the military coup in Febru-


ary 2012, unconcerned about the situation. “What Chinese knew about Maldives is inac-


curate,” said Pei Yu, a well-known China tour- ism scholar. “Actually, the harmonious appear- ance in Maldives is no more than an illusion. The fact is that the social and ethnic contradic- tions in Maldives are acute.” Nevertheless, the number of Chinese tourists


to the Maldives up to end-June for 2012 totaled 91,148 people, up by 13.1% over the full year of 2011. In June 2012 alone, the number of Chinese tourists was 17,809 person-trips, accounting for 30% of the total number of tourists received by the Maldives from all parts of the world. The number was up 15.6% over June of 2011. There are a wide range of flight options from China, and people have continued to arrive from China in ever increasing numbers regardless of the po- litical situation. Chinese people seem naturally to have a fearless instinct which separates politi- cal issues from personal life. “The military coup didn’t affect our mood,


the Maldives is very safe,” said Chen Yu, a tour- ist from Beijing. ” All I saw was the rich ocean. Paradise is what I experienced there.” People such as Chen Yu would not be influenced by the political situation in the Maldives. They just en- joy themselves in the fabulous surroundings of chic resorts under the blue skies. “Assuming the reins of government through


a coup did not conform to historical trends and the international community should immedi-
