Voice of Travelers to Micronesia
I have always been fascinated by the nature and culture of the South Pacific and was looking for a location that would allow me to see both. Micronesia did all that and even more! I booked an air ticket with United Airlines to Chuuk International Airport, in which the flight was very comfortable. I traveled to the state of Yap, Pohnpei, and Chuuk where I stayed. To go to the islands of Micronesia, I bought an air ticket from Continental Micronesia Airlines which is a small local airline.
All in all, I found the adventures in Micronesia to be a wonderful experience and am very happy that I flew with those airlines!
So Happy That I Took This Vacation!
I'm an American living in Guam and wanted to see more of the South Pacific during my vacation. So I booked an air ticket to Palikir, then booked additional air tickets to get around other islands in Micronesia. It was very easy to book tickets, and I was very happy with my experience with United Airlines. I was especially satisfied with how professional the on board service was. One tip that everyone should know is to make sure to be at the airport an hour or two ahead of the departure time indicated on your ticket!
