Change things up with a short trip to HP Reef in Furanafushi Island (about 1h 10 min away). There's much more to do: admire the landmark architecture of Hukuru Miskiiy (Old Friday Mosque), take in the spiritual surroundings of Grand Friday Mosque, stop by S.T.O Trade Centre, and pause for some photo ops at Victory Monument.

Brisbane, Australia to Male is an approximately 22- hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 5 hours traveling from Brisbane to Male. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Brisbane in December since evenings lows in Male dip to 30°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Fri) early enough to ride a ferry to Thoddoo.
