4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference, 8 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Maldives (Bradt Travel Guides) (Paperback)
This is a good guide to find your way around the maze of resorts in the Maldives and plan a holiday. Of course I can not possibly verify all the information, research seems to have been done with accuracy.

As for many Bradt guidebooks, I especially found this one valuable for its cultural content: many pages are devoted to the culture, history, social conditions of the country, which you don't find in many guidebooks.

My main criticism is that the author is a bit too uncritical of former president Gayoom, a man who did lots of good to the Maldives but ruled as a dictator, sometimes a brutal one, for three decades.

Make sure you get the latest edition of the guide when you buy one.

Several pictures and useful maps complete this book.
