Thanks, Adam. More good factoids that I did not know.Have a great one.
I am very much afraid of cockroaches. And I have heard the ones in Guam are very big. *Shudders*
Would love to visit Guam someday. Heard the beaches there are beautiful!
One tourist spot I knew, not sure though there is much to do
When I hear Guam I think of WW2 but that is quite old now. It looks like a nice place to visit
Guam is very popular with the deep sea diving fraternity as theyexamine WW2 wrecks in APPROVED ONLY areas. Some wrecks are deemedas dedicated war graves as there are still bodies in them.There are quite a few islands in the Marianas - Guam being the central one with the International Airport.I visited Guam in the early 1990's just after a cyclone hit and the capital then called Agana, now called Hagatna was flattened.The Hilton Hotel was an absolute mess........you would be surprised what "flying coconut trees" can do!I ended up staying in a US military compound!Guam was a central pivot in the Vietnam War for the US Bomber Forces!Well worth a visit - has direct flights to the US mainland or viaHonolulu......also as flights direct to Cairns in Australia with United-Micronesia airlines.CheersColin
Oh I Forgot to mention.One of the main reasons for the big number of Japanesevisitors was that Guam was occupied by the forces of the Imperial Japanese forces straight after Pearl Harbour and when MacArthur's ALLIED forces in their drive north from Australiareclaimed the Marianas, thousands of Japanese soldiers, airmen and sailors were killed...............so there are many Japanese War shrines to commemorate their dead.Colin
The beaches look really nice there.
I would like to visit Guam.
