The lovely island nation had already received 861,167 tourists as of June 16th, according to recent figures from the ministry of tourism. In comparison to the same period the previous year, when the Maldives attracted a total of 754,301 visitors, this marks a considerable 14.2% rise.
With 101,348 Indian tourists visiting the Maldives, India took the top rank among the top nations causing this increase in tourism. As of June 14, 2023, the United Kingdom held the third place, having welcomed 76,148 visitors to the archipelago, closely trailed by Russia (100,593 arrivals).

However, last month saw a dip in daily visitors to 3,900, and this month has seen a continuation of that trend. 3,707 people came through on average per day from June 1 to 13.
