Guam

As the most populated island of Micronesia, Guam is so “cosmopolitan” as it gets, so it cops a lot of the attitude of the Pacific snobs who believe that no “real island culture.” Sure, the American accents are everywhere (which is an unincorporated territory of the United States and many households in Guam flying the U.S. flag) and the Chamorro language is not spoken as widely as it used to be. And if you never stray from Tumon Bay – the island’s dazzling tax-free shopping and accommodation center – then no doubt you will feel much better (or less) overwhelmed.

But the island is currently in the process of retooling itself. Tourism officials talk about “product of Guam” as (not that American influence) needs a complete overhaul of its current status as a Pacific theme park for Japanese tourists. There may come a day soon when Chamorro culture (long subsumed by various invasions and occupations) is promoted above all, with a greater focus on local food and the fascinating stories behind many of the people.

You can do your bit for the escape Tumon, exposed to the best of Guam, and then spread the word. The island, although Micronesia largest, is small enough to explore in a day or two. The south is a place to visit, with its kaleidoscope of rural people asleep, history, breathtaking waterfalls and pristine beaches. The north is mainly in the hands of the U.S. military Base Andersen, but still, still contains the Ritidian point, a stretch of coastline, simply sublime, with palm trees, blue waters and golden sands.
