Hawaii and the Maldives are two of the most mesmerising island nations known for an overwhelming number of beaches. In addition to the beaches, the beauty of the landscapes of these two destinations are sure to leave you gobsmacked. Where the Hawaiian islands take pride in their green, gold, black, and red sandy beaches, the Maldives take no step back in out showing its extensive reefs and blue lagoons.
We all have our travel preferences, and hence we plan trips accordingly. Therefore, to provide more clarity on the matter, below is a detailed comparison of the two fairylands, so that you can choose one according to your travel expectations.
Cost is the first and foremost aspect which one looks after while planning a trip to some any place. Regarding airfare, flights to the Maldives are cheaper than they are to Hawaii. A one-way flight for the former starts from INR 15,000 and for the latter, starts from INR 35,000. However, Maldives offer more luxury accommodations, and Hawaii is far more backpacker-friendly. Therefore, the price of your stay will be higher when in the Maldives. It is always the best option to travel during the offseason so that you can work on cost saving.
Whether the time during which you plan to go out for a vacation is suitable for the place you wish to go to, is yet another factor. At times a destination is on our mind, but unfortunately, we aren't able to visit there due to unfavourable weather conditions. June, July and December are considered the best months for visiting Hawaii. On the other hand, December to March mark the high season in the Maldives.
The only risk in visiting Hawaii is surprise volcanic eruptions. Though they are located away from the city, and forecasts run continuously on television, being a tourist it becomes difficult for one to not to panic in such a situation. Early in 2018, Maldives was prone to political protests, but the Government made it sure that no harm is caused to the tourism sector. Hence, the atolls were safe. Apart from this, you can take a sigh of relief as both the counties have relatively low crime rates when compared to other countries. Also, no matter how safe or unsafe is any place, your presence of mind is the key to your well-being. Be it in the waters or on the roads, keep a wide eye on your belongings and travel partners. Your common sense and knowledge can help you solve most of the problems that might occur during travelling.
