Memories for a Lifetime

Landa GiraavaruThe special relationship that photography has shared with tourism over the years is something to marvel at. One age old tradition of tourists which has remained over the years is the post trip ritual goes through of looking through and sharing their memories of the trip via photographs. Whether they are seasoned travellers who venture of to far distant lands or people who prefer to travel in groups this ritual has been persistent. In contrast to the olden days, going through the bulking photo album of their recent travels with friends and family has been replaced with the uploading of photos on social media. Though the medium has changed, the essence has remained. Photography has gone hand in hand with tourism since its beginning. It serves as a source of advertisement, memento and often as a guide to future travels.

With such a magical connection that photography has with tourism, we at Maldivian Traveller provide these travellers with an opportunity with those picture perfect moments. Our tours are customized to ensure travellers are able to experience those moments that are pictured and advertised.
