US issues level two travel advisory for Maldives

US on Wednesday updated its travel advisory to the Maldives, urging its citizens to exercise increased caution when visiting the luxury island destination over a possible terror threat.

The level two advisory warned that terrorist groups may conduct attacks with little or no warning, targeting tourist locations, transportation hubs, markets/shopping malls, and local government facilities.

"Attacks may occur on remote islands which could lengthen the response time of authorities," the advisory read.

The updated travel advisory comes at a time when Maldives had recorded an uptick in US tourists to the archipelago.

US holidaymakers has been on a steady rise in 2017 with as many as 34,411 tourists visiting various hospitality venues of the tropical island destination. This is a 20.1 percent increase compared to last year's 28,651 of US tourists.

    Absolutely rubbish, I will blame our local friends of Maldives, who are worried about increasing percentage of tourists from USA, USA is so stupid also. This is because China influences are increasing in Maldives. Maybe Trump companies needed to come and invest then no travel advisor and no terrorist groups.
