The MTPB only gives its official seal of approval to publications which are well-reputed, internationally-popular, highly regarded in their field of activity and well-suited for the promotion of the Maldives tourism industry, according to the strict criteria of its endorsement guidelines. After undergoing a rigorous criteria assessment, which included an evaluation of Maldives Traveller’s goals, targets, longevity in the field and connection to the promotion of the Maldives as a tourist destination, the MTPB decided to give its official backing to Maldives Traveller.
Maldives Traveller is published by Tropical Paradise Pvt Ltd, one of the leading travel publishing companies in the Maldives.
