What vaccination for Dubai and the Maldives?
They are all just recommendations from what I can see.Posted 4 years agomarthallMember
Went last year with wife and daughter. Daughter got dysentery from the airport coming back…. not nice.
Dubai and Maldives will be cleaner than anywhere, no vaccinations needed really. But Dubai airport is where India and the Far East meets West so just make sure you wash your hands before eating.Posted 4 years ago
Cool, cheers guys.
I’m pretty well vaccinated up, but Mrs BC has only the basic UK ones.
athgray – which resort did you go to in the Maldives? Any recommendations for both destinations?
Edit- marthall, sounds nasty, I’ll be sure to wash my hands thoroughly. Would it be overkill to get some hand sanitising gel?Posted 4 years agoathgrayMember
breadcrumb, we stayed at Oluveli resort. Good snorkelling. Resort seemed quite popular with Italians, good laugh with them. Tennis, beach volleyball, crab racing, karaoke and dolphin watching.
In Dubai we did a night time dhow river cruise with dinner, which was nice.Posted 4 years agoMcHamishMember
We spent 2 weeks at the Chaaya Lagoon on Hakuraa Huraa.
I would recommend it without hesitation…rooms were great and the food was fantastic…best AI food I’ve ever had.
It’s a small hotel with 80 rooms on a 6 acre island. Some of the hotels we looked at had 350 rooms (if full that’s 700 people on a small island). At Chaaya Lagoon, we were usually on our own sat in turquoise blue water watching fish. It was quiet and peaceful (except for the group of Italians who stayed for a long weekend…you could hear them across the island and at the other end of the restaurant).
The rooms were water bungalows with a glass panel to watch the fish (there are a handful of beach bungalows too)…could be noisy at night with the water lapping underneath the bungalow though. There was a private balcony with steps down into the lagoon so the wife could sunbathe while I looked for Nemo. There was one occasion when staring at a little fish while snorkeling and I noticed a dark shape near me and crapped myself when an enormous black ray swam past.
Never been to Dubai on holiday but went there for a few days for meetings…wouldn’t go there on holiday to be honest. We ended up watching end of season football matches (I was with 3 Man U supporters) in a bar. The beach bar in the grounds of a western hotel was just full of rich young westerners. Similar to the people on Towie or Made in Chelsea. Perhaps it’s better if your on holiday.Posted 4 years agomattzzzzzzMember
Another vote for chaaya lagoon at hakuraa huraaPosted 4 years ago
Lovely place and very peaceful. Loads of sealife and an evening stroll up and down the boardwalk is very romantic
Water bungalows are excellent
Small island mind so for a honeymoon ideal as there’s not a lot to do, I used to like exploring the shallows off the bungalows steps right out to the surf- saw plenty of large turtles and got close to a few big raysSmudger666Subscriber
Wife is a travel vaccine nurse…. (Amongst other things)
Hep a, typhoid, poss antimalarials for Maldives., check out your diptheria, tetanus and polio – no booster in last ten years, best to get one.
Just passing on her advice 🙂
Actually, her advice was phone your doctor rather than ask on a bike forum, but I know the breadth of knowledge that exists here, I’d still be phoning to see the practice nurse though.Posted 4 years ago
