How do you say hello in Maldives?
While the more casual, informal way is frequently shortened to “Kihineh.” Asking some favour and you want to say “Please”, you say “Adhes kohfa.” “Thank you” is translated to“Shukuriyaa.” And “You're welcome” is “Maruhabaa.” in Dhivehi.
The currency of the Maldives is called the Rufiyah, which is linked to the dollar at around 12.75 Rufiyah to the dollar. However, most resorts and many local islands will accept the USdollar (bring small denominations such as $1, $5 and $10) as payment.
