  • 1 Nan Madol — a ruined city, sometimes called the Venice of the Pacific, in Pohnpei, Federated States of Micronesia
  • 2 War in the Pacific National Historical Park — in Guam, some of the best preserved WWII sights in the Pacific can be found here

Understand

Micronesia is a vast area that mainly consists of water. Transport can be a major issue because of the lack of an organized highway or byway, found in larger and more vast countries. Due to the lack of space on the islands, most activities are nautical, scuba diving etc.

Talk

English is an official language of all countries and territories here. Indigenous languages such as Chamorro, Palauan and Marshallese are also official in their respective countries and territories.

Get in

Palau and Guam have the best connections from outside Micronesia. The US territories, insomuch that civilians are allowed to enter, are connected to the US. As the airports often aren't large enough to accommodate large airplanes, expect flights to be of the island-to-island type which often means several landings and takeoffs before you're at your destination.

Get around

See

There are three world heritage sites in Micronesia:

  • The Bikini Atoll Nuclear Test Site, Ralik, Marshall Islands
  • The Rock Islands outside Koror, Palau
  • The site of Nan Madol outside Pohnpei, Federated States of Micronesia
