Maja Salvador crosses two items off her bucket list this April: traveling solo and traveling to the Maldives.


Maja Salvador kicks off her summer vacation flying solo to the Maldives, a favorite beach destination of celebrities.

At the start of April, the 29-year-old actress fulfilled her travel goals to travel alone and to hit the shores of the island republic, Asia's smallest country in size and population, and the flattest on earth.

“Nakakatanda, pero kailangan aminin. Sabi ko, bago ako mag-30, dapat magawa ko na yung bucket list ko, which is going to Maldives and to travel alone,” Maja told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and two more reporters last April 13, at the launch of her latest endorsement.

Maja's trip to the Maldives was also her reward to herself after committing more than a year to her lead role as Lily Cruz, aka Ivy Aguas, in the prime-time series, Wildflower.

“Kasi, di ba, laging galit yung dalawa? Laging may issue!” Maja said, “Sa akin, wala, e. Masaya lang ako.

“Kaya kinailangan ko talaga yung pumunta ako ng beach para talaga to release everything.

“Ma-let go ko si Lily Cruz, ma-let go ko si Ivy Aguas dahil for one year, mabigat sila.”

Go give your love to your soul. ????????? #MSescapade

SOLO EXPERIENCE. Maja said she thoroughly enjoyed her first travel experience on her own, describing her five-day beach escape to be completely relaxing.

The Kapamilya performer said, “Masaya mag-travel alone kasi hawak mo talaga oras mo, kung anong gusto mong gawin talaga.

“Minsan kasi kapag may kasama ka, siyempre mahihiya ka na, ‘O, ito gusto kong gawin.’

"Parang, dapat iisipin mo kung ano rin gusto gawin ng mga kasama mo.

“Ito naman, hawak mo oras mo. Kung tatamarin ka bigla mag-lunch, hindi magla-lunch. Kung gusto mo  na maligo sa dagat, puwede ka na maligo sa dagat.

“Wala kang aantaying iba o wala kang iisiping iba, parang gano’n.

“At sobrang na-relax ako…”

Maja also regaled the press with her story about the Pinoys she encountered on the island.

“Nakakatuwa kasi may ibang Pinoy na nagtatrabaho sa Maldives na hindi daw nila maatim na ako lang mag-isa.

“'Tapos ayon, nakikita nila na ako lang mag-isa nagbubuhat sa luggage ko…

“Kahit sabihin ko, ‘Ate, huwag na!’ parang mag-aagawan na kami sa maleta ko.

"Pero nando’n sila na, ‘Hindi po naming ma-take na si Lily Cruz nagbubuhat ng maleta.’

“So, parang, nag-offer pa—ang name nila hindi ko makakalimutan. Si Fredilyn saka si Grace.

“Nag-offer sila na off naman nila bukas, ihatid daw ako sa ferry, sa airport, sa sea plane going to the resort.

“Nakakatuwa na kahit nag-travel ka mag-isa, may nami-meet kang bagong friends saka mga kababayan mo...”

Where else would Maja want to go and explore on her own?

“Parang gusto ko naman sa Istanbul, 'tapos sa Morocco, 'tapos sa Egypt!”   

Even when taking photos, Maja did it on her own using GoPro camera’s timer mode to capture her time alone on the island of Maldives.
