It looks so idyllic. But I have heard that for most tourists with a brain, Maldives and Seychelles can actually become quite boring quite quickly. Is that so, Alain?

Unless you are a fanatic diver, there are not many things to do there. The tourist islands are tiny, and each one consists of a single hotel. We could make a round trip of ours, at a leisurely pace, in 20'. So, there is nothing else to do than swimming, watching the colourful fish and corals (you can spend hours doing that, but don't forget to wear a T-shirt), getting a perfect tan (but it seems that they have become quite intolerant regarding nudity), watching the rain fall (we had 20 consecutive hours of rain). We made a one-day boat (of course) trip to other islands, and visited a larger one, with regular Maldivians living there (no tourists). We stayed one week there, after another week on the west coast of Sri Lanka (which is definitely too short a visit, but we had already been there on a previous trip).
