Islands and more islands, here is what notes from Oceania say :
AUSTRALIA Aussie Aussie oi oi
Drinking in Aussie-style ‘hotel pubs’ in Melbourne, a night out in the historic Rocks of Sydney, watching the electrifying cricket match at the MCG, and spending a lazy day in Perth’s Fremantle district.
FEDERATED STATES OF MICRONESIA The emeralds of the Pacific
Located in the middle of nowhere, these little green jewels are so far-removed from the Pacific traveller radar, that no one you know has probably ever been here.
FIJI Finding happiness in the Pacific
Fiji is one of the most beautiful tropical islands with roads bordering the coast, coconut palms nodding gracefully toward the ocean, aquamarine waters, glorious sunsets, and Tiki torches lighting up the night.
KIRIBATI A Pacific paradise with a bloody past
With its far-flung location in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and a lack of people, it isn’t surprising that it is also one of the least-visited countries in the world.
MARSHALL ISLANDS A diver’s paradise
Located about halfway between Hawaii and Australia and spread over 1,000+ islands that were once a major battlefield during WWII, this nation is home to some of the world’s least explored diving sites and the notoriously famous bikini atoll.
NAURU Going nowhere in Nauru
The place has a lot more to it than just being a ‘detention centre’ for Aussie immigration. Thanks to the diversity, you get treated to the best ethnic food along with a tourist-free island experience.
NEW ZEALAND The world’s adventure capital
Bar-hopping in Auckland, tasting craft beer in Wellington, checking out cricket grounds, exploring the southern Alps and glaciers.
PALAU The jewel of Micronesia
Sleeping in a plantation resort, soaking in a plunging waterfall, kayaking around Rock Islands and over World War wrecks, and night snorkelling under starry skies.
PAPUA NEW GUINEA Far off in South West Pacific
Chilling in a private island resort, hanging out with the wallabies, sunset hilltop walks with incomparable ocean views and bar trips with security guards accompanying you.
SAMOA God’s Pacific retreat
Dotted with flower-filled villages and the many jungles, with lagoons, volcanic lava rocks, and decorated with coconut trees and a brilliant breeze.
SOLOMON ISLANDS The scarred isles of Melanesia
Oceanfront cafés and bars, the iron bottom sound where dozens of ships and planes sank during the famous Guadalcanal Campaign of WWII, Chinese constructions, war relics, and Solbrew lagers.
TONGA The place where time begins
South Pacific’s only kingdom has remained more impervious to outside influences and, therefore, escaped the grasp of the tourism industry.
VANUATU Caribbean jam in the Pacific
Breathtaking beach resorts, cascading waterfalls, Nambawan beer, and locals who look like they are from the West Indies.
