Hi what's the time difference in uk from Maldives ?
Male time is currently 4 hours ahead of uk time (bst - so 5 hours gmt). Some islands have their own daylight saving time and add an hour. Not sure if Vilamendhoo is one of them.
Thanks for your quick response x
To add to what Ian says, the islands that usually add an hour are in my experience the islands serviced by seaplane transfers. Therefore I would bet my last pound that Vilamendhoo does indeed add an extra hour onto Male time.
Olhuveli also does this, although it was a speedboat tranfer. On our second visit to the Maldives (Biyadhoo), I mistakenly assumed that ALL the islands added the extra hour on, so I was running an hour early for everything on the first day! Very confused. lol!
it is a bit confusing...islands in the same atoll do it differently - Angaga for example doesn't.
Invariably when you arrive and check in, you do so in reception - and there is always a clock. I always check it to be on the safe side :-)
According to the Vilamendhoo website, the current local time is 13:58, which puts it just 4 hours ahead of BST.i.e same as Male.
Rob - I think you just lost your last pound :-)
Vilamendhoo was the same as Male . Athuruga 1hr ahead . So either 4hrs or 5hrs ahead of uk at the moment .
Couldn't lend me a pound could you someone?!!
Nice one! :-)
