24 hours in Malé

In contrast to the pristine beaches and idyllic turquoise lagoons of the resort islands, is the Maldives’ frenetic yet fascinating capital city. Tourism is the biggest economy in this Sunni Muslim society (the country welcomes almost a million visitors per year); fishing is the second-largest economy. Speedboats carrying tourists to resorts criss-cross over the channel, iPhones buzz in the coffee shops, scooters weave through the narrow streets, and colourful fishing boats chug in and out of the harbour. The Maldivians have a vibrant heritage and are believed to originate from India, Sri Lanka, Africa, and Arabia. Ancient mosques and souvenir shops selling traditional handicrafts stand alongside glittering high-rise offices on this compact 2.2km2 island.

Renowned for its stunning West Lake and its tranquil gardens, Hangzhou was the imperial capital of both the Southern Song Dynasty and the invading Mongols. Modern Hangzhou is home to nearly seven million people and is one of the most important high-tech and manufacturing hubs in eastern China, but travellers are still drawn to its eclectic history, its rich culture, and the waters of ancient West Lake.
