Guam, Asia Cruise Port

Guam is the tourism centre of Micronesia, a range of islands which are amongst the most secluded in the world. As far-flung exotic locations go, Guam is hard to beat – but also offers a wealth of cultural history in addition to quiet, unspoiled natural beauty. After all, this was just one of many conflict sites during the Second World War, and visitors here will find a historic park commemorating the conflict. There's also a wealth of tradition here, and you won't struggle to find culture from before and after the island's Spanish influence.

Sightseeing in Guam

War in the Pacific National Historical Park

Bristling with artillery from the Second World War, Guam's major tourist attraction commemorates the conflict in the Pacific – when the island was occupied by the Japanese in 1941, and liberated by American forces three years later. The park covers several sites across the island, as well as areas under the waves – and is unique among US national parks, in that it acknowledges the loss of life on all sides of the conflict.

Inarajan Village

For a look at Guam's history before its Spanish occupation in the sixteenth century, visitors won't want to miss a chance to see Inarajan. Here you'll find an incredible natural pool down by the waterfront, and a charming village which is home to traditional thatch-roofed huts and a wealth of arts, crafts, and folk celebrations. Visit in February and you could see the village's yearly festival of traditional Chamorro dance; alternatively, tour the village in the summer and you could meet local artists and enjoy a great range of cultural activities.

Cocos Island

The ultimate secluded getaway during your holiday in Guam, Cocos Island lies a mile off the shore and is completely uninhabited. Imagine incredible turquoise waters surrounding white sandy beaches and rich green forest – and time spent alone here, in a real slice of paradise. Stretch out on the beach, dive into the bright blue waters, or take to the waves on a jet ski for a truly memorable adventure ashore.

Shopping in Guam

Guam has no shortage of modern shopping centres, but it also enjoys a wealth of traditional culture. Head to a bustling street market in Agana for authentic Chamarro food and crafts, or save your spends for the Inarajan traditional village – a great place to pick up some native souvenirs, from woven crafts made using coconut leaves to freshly made local sweets.

Eating Out in Guam

You'll find some fantastic places to dine during your time in Guam, whether you're looking for traditional fare or a classical fine-dining experience in one of the island's many higher-class restaurants. Grilled and barbecued dishes are popular, as is the fresh seafood caught in the bay. Try a prawn salad, delicious Thai cuisine or even some Jamaican jerk chicken after your adventures on the island.
