Information on Guam: The Undiscovered American Island Paradise

Guam is located in the Pacific Ocean south of Japan, in the group of islands known as Micronesia. In Guam, one can experience all the ambiance and beauty that a tropical paradise has to offer all the while enjoying the intrigue and mystery that is Asia.

What many people are unaware of is that Guam is a territory of the
United States. So this makes this island paradise the perfect holiday destination for Americans because there is no language barrier or money to exchange.

Guam is not a big island and is only thirty miles long at its widest point so you can very easily circle the island in a day. It is said that driving the circumference of Guam is the besy way to get your bearings as you spend your first day here. You will also be surprised by the very sharp contrast between the tourist side of the island, which is located in the Northwest around Tumon Bay , and the southern side of the island which is the native side. It is recommended to start your tour in the south because there is a restricted Air Force Base in the north.

While visiting Guam, you’ll probably end up staying in one of the torist resorts in Tumon Bay. Here luxury resorts will provide every amenity you could ever desire from private spas to water parks for the kids. Once you’ve settled in, you could spend your very first evening in Chamorro Village which is next to Paseo de Susana. This public market is a fantastic way to experience the awesome culture and traditions of the native Chamorro people - from crafts to local cuisine and clothing.
