The Maldives has seen the biggest spike in travel, as the island nation uses mass tourism to raise the funds necessary to adapt to climate change. which includes relocating thousands of people as well as building the necessary infrastructure to accommodate them.
The paradise atolls, famous for their turquoise waters as well as idyllic beaches, may be under water by 2100, according to the United Nations. which’s a fate the Maldives will be trying to avoid.
Last year, tourists flocking to the Maldives insured an average of $3,593 in nonrefundable costs, an 11 percent increase coming from the year before, according to Squaremouth. Those costs could include airfare, hotel, as well as recreational activities.
Round-trip plane tickets coming from brand new York City to the Maldives cost around $1,000 on the low end, while hotels can range coming from under $50 to around $2,000 per night, depending on the level of amenities.
