Now, in third place came Mauritius. They were wearing costumes that was full of flowers and large straw hats which perfectly illustrates the life on an island as mesmerizing and with loads of natural beauty. With the implementation of their country’s culture and traditions, their dance was full of joy and fun. In second place was Maldives, an island in which heaven was modelled after, gave also a well-rehearsed dance with perfect execution of harmony.
