Call this the cheapest trip to the magnificent Maldives. I merely spent Rs. 1,10,000 including return airfair, 3 times meal a day, clean and hygienic lodging, scuba diving, sharks and manta rays snorkelling trips, other marine life snorkelling trips which went on as long as I could swim, kayaking, airport to hotel return transfer for 2 people.

Here's a break up-

Return airfare for 2 - Rs. 46000

Airport to hotel transfer per person per way - $50 X 2 X 2 X 69= Rs. 13800

Lodging at Yonder Retreat with half board plan- $105 X 4X 69= Rs. 28980

Scuba Diving - $130 for 2 people - Rs. 8970

Other food and drinks - $55 = Rs. 3795

Misc. expenditure - $38 = Rs. 2622

Kayaking and Snorkelling for 2 people - $60 = Rs. 4140

One most important thing you must take care while traveling to anywhere. Do not have travel agents plan your trip. Plan it yourself. You'll save nearly half of what travel agents will quote you. Cheapest that I was quoted was $862 per person only for 4 nights lodging which nets to Rs. 1,18,956 which is already Rs. 9000 more than my total expenditure. For cheap lodging try airbnb. It's dope.

Further I spent Rs. 325 from IGI airport to my home and another Rs. 6000 to buy duty free products at the airport.
