Tropical Islands of Maldives Could be Underwater in less than 100 years
As this writer for The Guardian puts it: "... this poses the most obvious threat to an archipelago where most land is no taller than an 11-year-old child."
Maldives, located in the Indian Ocean, is especially known for being a honeymoon and holiday destination.
You've probably seen photos of Maldives islands on TV, online, and in brochures - especially of the lodging options they have which are located on stilts in the turquoise water.
I've had a couple friends visit there and I've heard nothing but good things from their experiences. Although, there does seem to be a bit of a political underbelly which happens a lot, sadly, with popular tourist destinations and with not-so-popular locations too.
Let's hope politics do not get in the way of saving this beautiful destination. But...I wouldn't hold my breath on that so you might want to book a flight there ASAP.
