The island nation of Maldives is said to be the smallest country in Asia, in both population and land area. It may also be the prettiest. The flight approach to the airport in the capital city of Male, is the most beautiful I've experienced. During my stay at the Paradise Island Resort, I took an excursion to the nearby island of Dhonveli. Here I enjoyed the beauty of these bungalows at the Chaaya Island Dhonveli Resort. The colors were mesmerizing.
