Papua New Guinea travel guide

3.9
Zoos · Cemeteries · Hiking Trails
Occupying the eastern half of New Guinea and its offshore islands, Papua New Guinea represents an immense cultural and biological diversity. Densely carpeted in lush rainforest, the largely mountainous interior includes several active volcanoes. Because of this rugged landscape, Papua New Guinea remains one of the planet's least explored areas, thought to harbor as-yet undiscovered species. Remote mountain ranges nurture unique plant and animal life found nowhere else in the world, while the wildly fluctuating topography creates large differences in climate that further diversify the ecosystems. The people of Papua New Guinea are equally varied and distinct, with hundreds of tribes and communities--the vast majority of which are rural--and approximately 850 different languages. Don't expect much of a tourism infrastructure in Papua New Guinea (or infrastructure of any kind), but do expect any challenges to be richly rewarded by a real adventure unlike any other, in an untamed wilderness, untouched by commercialization.

Solomon Islands travel guide

3.9
Scuba & Snorkeling · Flea Markets · Ruins
Build your Solomon Islands trip around the many enriching diving experiences available, or plan a relaxing break on a luxuriously sandy and peaceful beach. Witness the vibrant culture of the local people on an eco-friendly guided walk, shopping for locally made handicrafts, and sampling the local cuisine. Solomon Islands still bears the marks of a very different aspect of its history, when some of the most intense fighting in World War II happened here. Learn about this dark chapter through memorials, museums, artifacts, and relics, both on land and under the sea.

One of the world's smallest countries, Nauru represents an island heaven for those interested in doing little more than relaxing by the sea during their vacation.

For history buffs looking to add some culture to their Nauru itinerary, reminders of Japanese occupation remain scattered around the tiny island.

You'll find a surprising number of vacation ideas in Kiribati, an island nation boasting a rich cultural and natural abundance.

Its refreshingly noncommercial and lively culture engages visitors with its colors, vibrancy, and welcoming character. Experience the local philosophy of subsistence in the villages, where delicious cuisine and traditional ceremonies take precedence. On a different note, history buffs will appreciate sites commemorating an infamous World War II battle that took place here. Head farther inland for an adventurer's holiday--exploring the forests, discovering a wealth of impressive natural features, and identifying the diversity of plant and animal life.

Tuvalu travel guide

3.9
Nature & Parks · Government Buildings
A group of tiny atolls and reef islands in the South Pacific, Tuvalu offers plenty of seaside appeal. Most visitors start and end their tour of Tuvalu on Fongfale, the main islet where you'll find the majority of accommodations and other tourist-oriented facilities. Beaches fringed by palms remain the main attractions on Tuvalu, with visitors coming to dive and snorkel the waters sheltering a variety of tropical fish and sea turtles.

A fusion of British, French, Polynesian, and Melanesian influences, the nation combines devout religious devotion with the slow, relaxed pace of island life.

Active volcanoes remain among the biggest attractions in Vanuatu, along with the chain's stunning beaches and shimmering blue waters.

East Timor travel guide

3.8
Monuments · Shopping · Specialty Museums
Rugged beaches lure many to take their holiday in East Timor, a former Portuguese colony that gained its independence in 2002 after a brutal occupation by Indonesia. With pristine reefs, steep mountains, mysterious jungle caves, and misty hillside villages, the country represents one of Asia's most charming destinations, where it's still possible to have an off-the-beaten-track adventure. Many choose to tour East Timor by car, stopping at various locations to snap photos, dive into the sea, and mingle with the locals at quaint settlements preserving age-old traditions lost to the rest of the world. Those preferring urban experiences concentrate on Dili, the ultra-relaxed capital with access to both sea and mountains.
