The “Hemline Index” says that the length of the skirts rise in good times and go longer in in worse one. So, it is no surprise that the luxurious Maldives has no shortage of short dresses on show by the fashionista crowd…

Not all the tropical landscape just happens upon the islands. Most resorts have a nursery to germinate a range of the more colourful plants and flowers with which to accent the property.
