Highlights of traveling Tonga for 2 weeks!! This affordable tropical island travel/vacation destination in the South Pacific is ideal for single travelers looking to go somewhere off the beaten path, as well as families who want to avoid the mass of tourists in most other tropical destinations. Amazing culture, friendly people, stunning scenery and a laid back vibe are what you can expect from Tonga! The island nation is one of the most underrated in the South Pacific. I cannot recommend it enough! If you are looking for a true authentic Polynesian experience, please consider Tonga! Swimming with Humpback Whales was the highlight of our trip. The feeling of locking eyes with these massive yet majestic creatures is something that I'll never be able to put into words. On our trip we went to 3 of the 4 island groups in Tonga (Tongatapu, Ha'apai and Vava'u). We spent 3 days in Tongatapu, 4 in Ha'apai and 8 in Vava'u.

A Tourist's Guide to Nuku'alofa, Tonga
Part 5 of my South Pacific Trip.
After a night in an airport hotel in Fiji, I jet off to the Kingdom of Tonga. The capital, Nuku'alofa is a sleepy town with a fair smattering of palm trees, foraging pigs and piglets and plenty of (friendly) stray dogs. There's also some big fruit bats.
My full day in Tonga happened to be a Sunday, a day where everything closes except for the churches. So I visit one and listen to some singing before catching a ferry over to Pangaimotu Island.
TONGA'S MOST BEAUTIFUL RESORT | Traveling Tonga Day 10
On our last Sunday in Tonga we spent most of the day at the beautiful Tongan Beach Resort. In the morning, we decided to attend a church service to see what Tongan church was like, since it is such a large part of their culture. We spent the rest of the day exploring Vava'u and hanging out at the Resort, which is one of the only places open on Sunday. Resort is a very loose term in Tonga...the resorts in Tonga are often just guesthouses, and nothing like the typical resorts that we think of as Westerners.
Stay tuned for day 11 and 12 where we will be leaving Neiafu and going to a more remote location. Thanks for watching everyone!

10 Things NOT To Do in Samoa
Get more Tips here!
The Samoan islands are surrounded by miles of pristine beaches, crystal blue ocean, and dazzling reef. But keep in mind that Samoa is a conservative country, and you should do your research ahead of time. Here’s our list of 10 things you should NOT in Samoa.
1. Don’t Stay Standing
When it’s time to get down to business, you’ll notice that Samoans all sit down on the floor to engage in discussion. It’s also considered rude to eat or drink while you’re standing.
2. Don’t Indulge in Kava
It’s customary to take part in the kava ceremony. This narcotic brew is made with the roots of a pepper plant, and the cup of liquid is passed around for everyone to sip and enjoy. Overindulging in the drink can decrease your reaction times and motor coordination.
3. Don’t forget to brush up on the Culture
Samoan Cultural Village and Knowledgeable guides will take you around through different exhibits where you’ll be given a fun history lesson. You’ll also be taught coconut weaving, watch an entertaining dance performance, and be treated to a traditional meal cooked over an earth oven.
4. Don’t Underestimate a Beach Fale
A fale is a hut on the beaches. You can actually rent one and wake up to the waves crashing right at your feet. These handmade structures range from simple to luxurious, but to get a true experience, you’ll definitely want to stay in the old school version made of wood and dried coconut fiber.
5. Don’t Leave the Water Without Your Lava Lava
After soaking up some sun on the beach, make sure to cover up with a lava lava afterward. It’s similar to a sarong, and it basically covers up your body so that you don’t offend the locals. And keep in mind, the lava lava is worn by both men and women.
6. Don’t Forget to Pay Taefu T Matafeo Store a Visit
Between Salelologa and the north coast, you’ll find a tiny establishment called Taefu T Matafeo Store. Inside, you can sip on some of the best espressos ever, while nibbling on homemade cakes. They also serve up light fare, including kimchi, and they have more than enough icy beer to go around.
7. Don’t Go Chasing Waterfalls…Just Joking
Samoa’s backdrop is rich with gorgeous tropical forests that are home to some of the most stunning waterfalls. On Upolu Island, you will find Sopoaga Waterfall at the foot of Lotofaga Village. At the base of the falls, you can also take part in an umu demonstration and coconut husking.
8. Don’t Be Surprised by Beach Fees
In Samoa, the majority of the beaches are owned by families and villages, and they charge visitors a small fee (from 5 to 20 tala) to swim, take photos on the beach, or even wander around the sand. If you’re staying at a resort, you won’t have to worry about this fee at all.
9. Don’t Visit the National Museum on Weekends
This museum should definitely be at the top of your itinerary, but make sure you stop by during the week, because they’re closed on weekends. You can send a special request to ask that they open their doors for you on a Saturday or Sunday, but there’s no guarantee that they’ll honor it.
10. Don’t Enter During Prayer
Prayer sessions can happen frequently, and if you find that you’ve arrived at someone’s home during a prayer, wait outside until it is finished. If you’re inside their home at the time the prayer’s set to take place, you’ll be expected to take part in the service as well.

Vanuatu Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia (4K)
The Republic of Vanuatu lies in the South Pacific Ocean, just a short flight from Australia and New Zealand.
Most visitors to Vanuatu arrive at the nation’s capital, Port Vila, situated on the main island of Efate. Vila, as it’s affectionately known, sits at the edge of a magnificent natural harbor filled with corals and sea life.
Like many South Pacific ports, Vila is wonderfully relaxed, so leave your designer gear at home, pull on some flip flops and slide into island time.
Just a ten-minute drive from port Vila, is Ekasup Cultural Village, where proud villagers are waiting to share their centuries-old customs, crafts, music and stories.
From Vila, take a 50-minute flight to Espiritu Santo. At the island’s sleepy capital Luganville, stock up on supplies at the markets, before venturing off to explore the island’s natural wonders.
After exploring mainland Santo, visit the islands off its southern coast, such as Aore Island, Bokissa Island and Malo Island.
Just a 45-minute flight south from Port Vila, Tanna Island is fringed with beaches ranging from pure white to black volcanic sands. Many of the hillside villages on Tanna remain largely unaffected by the trappings of the modern world. Feel the earth shake on Mt. Yasur, one of the world’s most active and accessible volcanoes.
After experiencing the warmth and generosity of Vanuatu’s people, it’s easy to feel that Vanuatu could be one of richest places on earth.
Market Tour | Vava'u Island Tonga South Pacific
Please share & subscribe! YOU MAY NEVER PASS THIS WAY AGAIN....
Fresh market shops line the streets in Vava'u Tonga.
You can buy just about anything. I was there in August and there were pineapples, bananas, t-shirts new and used, umbrellas, flip-flops, you name it and they pretty much had it there!
This video was shot on my last day in Neiafu, Vava'u. Just walking around the town and down the main streets. Neiafu is very small. Very quaint and a perfect place to just get away from it all.
I would highly recommend a visit to this incredible island if you are looking for places to visit in the south pacific.
Oh yeah, you won't want to miss out on this!

Kingdom of Tonga Vavau Island Group South Pacific Travel Destination
Tonga is a magnificently beautiful country. The Kingdom is a constitutional Monarchy, modeled after England and uses English law as its base. Located in the grand South Pacific, Tonga is between Tahiti and Fiji, an independent island nation in the southern Pacific Ocean, located approximately 650 km (approximately 400 mi) southeast of Fiji and approximately 1,850 km (approximately 1,150 mi) northeast of New Zealand. Tonga is the only remaining Polynesian monarchy. The Vava’u Island Group. This Cluster of islands, North of the Ha’apai Group, is the most spectacular in Tonga. Vava’u is Tonga’s northern island group, made up of over 60 high and thickly forested isles. An attractive, rather hilly main island surrounded by many others, Vava’u has high cliffs which combine to create many deep fiord-like bays. There are many good beaches but you will have to look for them. The main town of Neiafu is built on a hillside facing Port of Refuge Harbor, one of the best in the South Pacific. Neiafu, the administrative capitol of the Vava‘u Island Group, is one of Tonga’s principal ports. Rich, volcanic soils help make agriculture the primary economic activity in the islands, and products include copra, vanilla, and pumpkins. Vava’u Island is rather large and has kilometer after kilometer of beautiful countryside making for some interesting bicycle rides.

OMG GUYS! The last 3 days of my life have been spent in the world's least visited country called Nauru in the Pacific Islands. Have you ever heard of Nauru before? Less than 200 tourists a YEAR visit this tiny-island nation called Nauru of 10,000 residents, and it's a fascinating place.
If you know me, then you'll know that nothing excites me more than visiting obscure places… Nauru is my 155th country, and maybe the most interesting one yet, and I cannot wait to tell you all about it!! PSA: NAURU IS AMAZING!

Vava’u is a group of more than 50 islands in Tonga, about 150 miles north of Tongatapu. They are either raised coral limestone or coral atolls. The beautiful harbour opposite the main town of Neiafu (known as the Port of Refuge Harbour) is a common destination for yachties sailing the South Pacific. The waters of the islands are known for their clarity, it being said that you can see the bottom at 40 metres. The area attracts many humpback whales between June and November and there are lots of companies organising tours to see them. There are numerous places to stay, to suit most budgets
See Neiafu (Vava'u), Tonga
Vanilla. Vava'u is a major production area for high quality vanilla and wandering around the countryside on the main island will give you a chance to see how the vanilla bean grows. The plant, a member of the orchid family, has a small cream or yellow flower which must be hand pollinated. The bean then takes nine months to grow, after which it is dried and cured, which develops the flavour and turns the pod dark brown or black. It is said to be the most labour-intensive agricultural product in the world. The value of individual beans means that farmers go to great lengths to protect them from theft, including pricking their individual code numbers on each bean with a pin.
Mt. Talau National Park. This was established in 1995 to preserve one of the few remaining areas of relatively undisturbed native forest. It is located on the main island. The Park has several tree species that are endangered in Tonga. Most of the birds and reptiles native to Tonga can be found here. Mt. Talau is also important as a source of Tongan legends. The entrance is approximately 2 km from the center of Neiafu aand the trail is approximately 1km.
‘Ene’io Botanical Garden., Tu’anekivale village (on the east coast of the main island.), The garden aims to promote the survival of native and exotic species and also to provide a sanctuary for bird life. Conservation successes include tree ferns, sandalwood species, bamboos and breadfruit species. You can leave a permanent memory by planting your own tree. There is also a Visitors’ Center where you can see tapa and other artefacts being made and sample the traditional drink of kava. Lunch is provided (if booked in advance) on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. On Thursday evening there is a Tonga Feast.
Do Neiafu (Vava'u), Tonga
Walks. There are several good walks from Neiafu including the climb up Mt. Talau (131m-see above) which has excellent views over the harbor. Toafa Church on the west point of Vava'u has good views of the cliffs of Hunga island and other islands.
Boat tours. Day trips around the islands are available from several companies for about T$50 per person. These tours visit Mariners Cave (which is accessible through an underwater tunnel), Swallows Cave (excellent for snorkelling) and one or two of the many secluded beaches around the Group. Vava'u Island Express offers day tours and snorkelling trips
Diving. Visibility is excellent and the diving is great. Lots of dive sites, offering hard and soft corals, sea fan grottos, wall diving and magnificent caves. Equipment can be rented and diving tours arranged. There are several PADI qualified dive instructors. Companies include Beluga Diving , Dive Vava’u  (now closed), and Dolphin Pacific Diving ,
Sailing. Vava'u is one of the most popular yacht cruising areas of the South Pacific. You can charter boats without provisioning or fully provisioned with a skipper and a cook. Short or long duration charters can be arranged.
Whale Watching. From June to November humpback whales calve and mate in the calm waters. It is not only the sight that is fascinating: the male whales sing. Whale songs vary according to location: each year the song at each location changes. The effect of their singing on humans swimming with them is magical with the sound vibrating through your entire body. Whale watching excursions are available from Sailing Safaris , Endangered Encounters , Melinda Sea Adventures, which offers whale tours under sail , Whale Watch Vava'u and Vava'u Adventures , among others.
Snorkelling. There are some great beaches throughout Vava'u. Snorkelling and reef viewing opportunities abound.Vava'u Island Express offers snorkelling trips
Kayaking. Guided tours of six and eight days to remote islands are available between May and December by the Friendly Islands Kayak Company. You may run into turtles, porpoises, whales, flying foxes and many seabirds.
