Like many pictures of tropical islands, it looks too amazing to be real. But this capital of the Maldives is very real and very amazing. The Maldives is the smallest Asian country in actual size and population and also happens to be physically the lowest country at just an average of 4ft 11” above sea level. Backpacking through the Maldives can be very costly but staying within the Male city limits will be more budget friendly.
