If you wish to catch a glimpse of Maldivians' daily lives, look no further than the Male' Fish Market. This is the commercial epicenter of arguably the country's most important industry: fishing. Here, the foot traffic peaks in the afternoon as fishermen from the entire country sail right up to the edge of the market and unload the daily catch. Tuna is the most popular fish for sale, but you'll find some other types as well. Visitors say watching the workers filet and clean the fish is impressive. You could even pick up some fresh fish for dinner, if you have a facility to prepare a meal. Though, some previous travelers warn communication may be difficult here as some Maldivian fishermen do not speak fluent English.

The exterior is made of coral stone and features intricate designs and inscriptions from the Quran. While it may seem underwhelming to the average traveler from the outside, the inside of this mosque displays intricate woodwork and exquisite inlays.
