Our Epic Spring
Break, Part II:
go after five nights at the Four Seasons Langkawi? Well if you are on
the epic spring break that we enjoyed in March of 2007, the answer of
course is The Maldives! Continuing our spring break of a lifetime, we
flew from Langkawi back to Singapore to board a plane to Male, the
nation's capital and jumping off point for the archipelago that is the
Islands. We were invited there by the parent of one of Tracy's middle
school students, and we were treated royally. Our stay was at the
Thulhagiri Island Resort, a small island that is about 300 meters in
circumference. Compared to some of the posher resorts, this was a
mid-level resort in terms of price and amenities, but how much
pampering do you need when you are surrounded by the stunning beaches
and crystalline water? Thulhagiri is very popular with European
divers, but we were content to snorkel off the back porch of our water
villa, and later went fishing. All that of course, in addition to
enjoying the pristine beaches. The photo to the
left shows us arriving at Thulhagiri after a 15 minute speedboat ride
from the capital of Male, while the photo to the right shows Tracy
relaxing on the Island's beautiful beach.
A Video Overview of Thulhagiri
Our tour begins with a brief video of overview, since the
island is small enough to be traversed in but a few minutes. This is a
much more recent tour, shot just two years ago, but the basic fixtures
of the island seemed to have remained unchanged with the exception of
the addition of a spa. This video is courtesy of derbrunner1.

A Map-Based Tour of the Island:
In addition to this overview, we have created an map-based tour of the
island, featuring pop-up windows that describe each of the sites. Each
site is numbered, and a description of that site is provided in the
table below the map.
