A new category of posts I am starting in this blog is ‘Top Sites’ on the Maldives. There are an enormous number of websites and blogs on the subject of the Maldives, and yet I started Maldives Complete out of frustration with the quality of them all. I found too many of them either too commercial (they provide a little bit of useful information and lots of material on how to book a holiday), or too repetitive (too many peons to how idyllic this beautiful place is with the same pictures of sea life, turquoise waters and tropical flowers).
All that said, a number of websites do stand out for their usefulness. The first one to highlight is the Maldives entry into Wikipedia. The entry maintains the high degree of characteristic objectivity and review covering areas of history, economy, civics and culture.
A particular point of pride for Maldives Complete is that the site is featured in Wikipedia’s ‘External Links’ section which is reserved for only a select few highly useful, non-commercial reference sites.
