Have you ever heard of The World 7 Wonders ?

Can you name them ?…No ?
So here is the list :
The Colossus of Rhodes
The Great Pyramid of Giza
The Hanging Gardens of Babylon
The Lighthouse of Alexandria
The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus
The Statue of Zeus at Olympia
The Temple of Artemis at Ephesus

This famous list will surely remain forever the same in the memories.
But, what is the point with Maldives ?  Well, if you want to know more, read carefully the following:

The New7Wonders Foundation was established in 2001 by the Swiss-born Canadian filmmaker, author and adventurer travel lover Bernard Weber to contribute to the protection of the worlds human-built and natural heritage and to foster respect for our planet’s diversity and beauty.

The finalist list is essentially based on votes from World citizens like you and me.

This project offers 2 possibilities of listing :

The Official New 7 Wonders of the World.


The Official New 7 Wonders of Nature.

The Maldives are officially in the 28 finalists and remain ranked as 4th for the past weeks !

The Reserve List contains nominees from the second phase of the Official New7Wonders of Nature that qualified as one of the top 77 nominees from over 440 nominees participating.

Here on Dreaming of Maldives Blog, we obviously wish that Maldives would finish in the top 3.
Do you also believe that Maldives should be at the top of this original and beautiful list ?

So, just click on the link, and you will be automatically redirected  to the new7Wonders website.

Follow the steps to vote (-attention : you must register to vote – ) for Maldives and your 6 other favorite Nature Wonders !

Maldives Seasons | The first Rain Showers


 The sun was shining and the sea was quiet. But in the far end, we could see that something was coming….First winds strongly rised and the rain shower came…This is the beginning of the rainy season in Maldives.

Rain showers are common at this time of the year. Monsoons are changing, skies become dramatic and the weather can change in a matter of minutes.

The rainy season goes generally from June/July until September. This is the ideal season for surfing as the swell gets high and powerful. Windsurf and hobbie cats lovers will also have their best times !
