The Marshall Islands, officially the Republic of the Marshall Islands is an island country located in the northern Pacific Ocean. Geographically, the country is part of the larger island group of Micronesia, with the population of 68,480 people spread out over 24 low-lying coral atolls, comprising 1,156 individual islands and islets. The islands share maritime boundaries with the Federated States of Micronesia to the west, Wake Island to the north,[note 2] Kiribati to the south-east, and Nauru to the south. The most populous atoll is Majuro, which also acts as the capital.

Micronesian colonists gradually settled the Marshall Islands during the 2nd millennium BC, with inter-island navigation made possible using traditional stick charts. Islands in the archipelago were first explored by Europeans in the 1520s, with Spanish explorer Alonso de Salazar sighting an atoll in August 1526. Other expeditions by Spanish and English ships followed, with the islands' current name stemming from British explorer John Marshall (1788). Recognised as part of the Spanish East Indies in 1874, the islands were sold to the German Empire in 1884, and became part of German New Guinea in 1885. In World War I the Empire of Japan occupied the Marshall Islands, which the League of Nations joined with other former German territories in 1919, to form the South Pacific Mandate. In World War II, the islands were conquered by the United States in the Gilbert and Marshall Islands campaign. Along with other Pacific Islands, the Marshall Islands were then consolidated into the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands governed by the US. Self-government was achieved in 1979, and full sovereignty in 1986, under a Compact of Free Association with the United States.

Politically, the Marshall Islands is a presidential republic in free association with the United States, with the US providing defense, funding grants, and providing access to social services. With few natural resources, the islands' wealth is based on a service economy, as well as some fishing and agriculture, with a large percentage of the islands' gross domestic product represented by aid from the United States. The country uses the United States dollar as its currency.

The majority of citizens of the Marshall Islands are of Marshallese descent, with small numbers of immigrants from the Philippines and other Pacific islands. The two official languages are Marshallese, a member of the Malayo-Polynesian languages, and English. Almost the entire population of the islands practises some religion, with three-quarters of the country either following the United Church of Christ -- Congregational in the Marshall Islands (UCCCMI) or the Assemblies of God.

Spanish explorer Alonso de Salazar was the first European to see the islands in 1526, commanding the ship Santa Maria de la Victoria, the only surviving vessel of the Loaísa Expedition. On August 21, he sighted an island at 14°N that they named San Bartolome (probably Taongi).[4]

On September 21, 1529, Álvaro de Saavedra Cerón commanded the Spanish ship Florida, on his second attempt to recross the Pacific from the Maluku Islands. He stood off a group of islands from which several natives came off and hurled stones at his ship. These islands, named by him Los Pintados, may have been Ujelang. On October 1, he found another group of islands where he went ashore for eight days, exchanged gifts with natives and took on water. These islands, Los Jardines, could be Eniwetok or Bikini Atoll.

The Spanish ship San Pedro and two other vessels in an expedition commanded by Miguel Lopez de Legazpi on January 9, 1530, discovered an island at 10°N where they went ashore and traded with natives and named it Los Barbudos (possibly Mejit). On January 10, they sighted another island that they named Placeres (perhaps Ailuk), ten leagues away, they sighted another island that they called Pajares (perhaps Jemo). On January 12, they sighted another island at 10°N which they called Corrales (possibly Wotho). On January 15, another low island was sighted at 10°N (perhaps Ujelang) where they made a good description of the people on Barbudos.[7][8] After that, ships like San Jeronimo, Los Reyes, Todos los Santos also visited the islands in different years.

Cook Islands Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia



Situated at the very centre of Polynesia, the Cook Islands is an archipelago nation comprised of 15 islands. It is spread across an area in the South Pacific, three times the size of Texas..


Supremely beautiful, with pristine white sands fringed by coconut palms, the Cook Islands possess a castaway island magic and yet is only a four hour flight from New Zealand.

According to legend, these tiny islands, dotted amongst the vast ocean, were discovered thousands of years ago by the very finest Polynesian seafarers. Guided by the stars and using other sophisticated navigation techniques, they landed their legendary double hulled Vakas and set about creating paradise.

It is a rhythm you’ll feel as soon as you touch down in Raratonga, the largest island in the group.
You could easily drive around this sparkling island in half an hour if you hurry, but that’s the charm of the Cook Islands….. no one does.

It has been almost 250 years since Captain Cook became the first European to discover these islands and yet there is a gentle timelessness that endures here.

Come and discover the generous rhythm and warm hospitality of the Cook Islands for yourself.

Places that Nobody Wants to Visit

Get more Tips here!

There are lots of places in the world that we are eager to see. Longing for the holiday season to prepare our trip. However, there are some places that nobody wants to visit at all. Let's see them!

1) Democratic Republic of São Tomé and Príncipe, Africa
This is actually a remarkable country for those who love beaches. It's full of them and has the interesting Obo National Park, even though it's the second smallest country in Africa. But nobody comes here because of the lack of airports and connections. It's just not easy to get there. What a shame!

2) Turkmenistan
This was an important stop on the Silk Road in the 15th century. It owns one of the driest deserts in the world, the Karakum Desert. According to Human Rights Watch, it remains one of the world’s most repressive countries. But, it still has some amazing things such as the Darvaza gas crater, that is a natural gas field set on fire by geologists in 1971 to prevent the spread of methane gas and has been burning ever since.

3) Equatorial Guinea
Only US citizens can travel here without a visa, everybody else has to fill out a whole lot of paperwork. Yes, it has beautiful coasts, but doesn't have great attractions and has one of the worst governments in the world. It just doesn't appeal to most people.

4) Marshall Islands
This country is a collection of atolls and islands near the equator in the Pacific Ocean. This place is like a perfect paradise full of amazing landscapes and beaches. So why's it on our list? There's only one airline operating here, and it's extremely expensive. So... that's why.

5) Republic of Kiribati
This is a sovereign state in the central Pacific Ocean. It is the only country that is situated within all four hemispheres. Kiritimati is the world's largest atoll, and it's the first place on Earth to enter into the new year. Everything here is peaceful, calm and paradisaical. But don't wait to much, a rise of sea level due to global warming will be inevitable.

6) Tuvalu
Formerly known as the Ellice Islands, between Hawaii and Australia, they comprise of three reef islands and six true atolls. But, the only way to get there is by sail boat. Also, they have high risks of tropical cyclones and the ever rising sea level threatens to wash them away.

7) Federal Republic of Somalia
This place is like a compilation of no-nos, starting by its political situation, and some other severe problems. So, we don't encourage you to go, only unless you want to buy a fake university title on the black market. If not, stay away!

8) Republic of Nauru
It is the smallest state in the South Pacific. It only has two hotels and one airline to take you there, and that's the good part of this place. There's really nothing at all to visit here. It's actually a phosphate-rock island with no attractions to visit anywhere. So that's why it's on our list...

9) Izu Islands
The Izu Islands are a group of volcanic islands in Japan. Because of their volcanic nature, the islands are constantly filled with the stench of sulfur. Tourism returned in 2005 but now you need to bring gas masks in case gas levels rise unexpectedly. So, that doesn't seem too fun.

10) The Zone of Alienation
We all remember that terrible event that happened in the Eastern Europe where a nuclear reactor disaster caused the isolation of a 2.5 thousand square kilometer area. However, a few hundred samosely people still live there and visitors started coming back since 2009. It doesn't seem the best place for a visit, right?... It's just common sense...

Marshall Islands Travel Video

Marshall Islands Travel Video - The air is tangy with sea salt on the thousand or so slender, flat coral islands that make up the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI). Living on these narrow strips of land between ocean and lagoon, the Marshallese are expert fishers and navigators, having long been reliant on the sea.

Local faces reflect the islands history. In the late 1700s, after 2000 years of isolation, these Micronesian islands were variously visited, settled, colonised or occupied by British, Russians, Germans, Japanese and Americans (at first by missionaries, later by defence forces). Today the more developed atolls have a sense of all these influences, with well-stocked stores carrying international groceries, restaurants serving the food of several nations, and basketball courts on many street corners. On the quieter backstreets the Marshallese continue to live in family compounds, surrounded by flowers. The two main atolls have quite different characters. While its Westernised, the capital, Majuro Atoll, retains much of the languid feel of the tropics. In contrast, Kwajalein Atoll is leased to the US military for missile testing and is virtually closed to nonmilitary visitors, its local workers shuttled to the wall-to-wall tenements of Ebeye.

The RMIs charm lies in its outer islands which - except for the traumatic nuclear history of some - still retain the pristine feel of the tropical Pacific. If you have only a few days to spend here, dont run your schedule too tightly alongside that of Air Marshall Islands (AMI) - it generally serves outer atolls just once weekly, and delays of up to many days are common. You can still get a feel for the classic Robinson Crusoe lifestyle by visiting one of the small islands in Majuro Atoll, though divers often bypass Majuro and head straight to Bikini for WWII wreck-diving or Rongelap for nature-diving.

The Marshall Islands are a sprawling chain of volcanic islands and coral atolls in the central Pacific Ocean, between Hawaii and the Philippines. In the northwest, Bikini Atoll’s largely undisturbed waters, used as a ship graveyard after World War II, are now a popular wreck dive site. Near Majuro Atoll, which holds the islands' capital and largest settlement, the coral reef at Kalalin Pass teems with marine life.
After almost four decades under US administration as the easternmost part of the UN Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands, the Marshall Islands attained independence in 1986 under a Compact of Free Association. Compensation claims continue as a result of US nuclear testing on some of the atolls between 1947 and 1962. The Marshall Islands have been home to the US Army Post Kwajalein (USAKA) since 1964. A number of islands are off-limits to tourism (and even to locals) due to US military presence or the residue of nuclear testing.
The Marshall Islands consist of two island chains of 30 atolls and 1,152 islands, of low coral limestone and sand. Bikini and Enewetak are former US nuclear test sites; Kwajalein, the famous World War II battleground, is now used as a US missile test range.
