Guam's flag Flag of Guam
Guam is an island located on the South Pacific Ocean and is among the territories of the United States of America. It is one of the islands that make up Micronesia, as well as the most populous of these isles. Though the country is more Americanised today, and the native language of Chamorro is hardly spoken now, there is an ongoing plan to revive the country's traditions and culture.
Aside from the tourist trap that is Tumon Bay - the island's accommodation and duty-free shopping centre - visitor's will be pleasantly surprised with the number of attractions that are unique to the island.
The first is Southern Guam, which is a must-see for its relaxed ambience, certainly a glimpse into the idyllic island life. Then there's the Talofofo Falls with its historic 2-tier waterfall. It's the ideal spot for a refreshing picnic with the family. Travellers may also find socialising with the locals an enlightening experience and the perfect place to do that is in the Chamorro Village Night Market.
