Guam is an island in West-North Pacific Ocean, between Philippines and Hawaii. Guam is part of the Mariana Island Archipelago in Micronesia. Guam is also an unincorporated United States territory. Guam's indigenous residents are called Chamorros. In 1668 Guam was colonized by Spaniards and remained under Spanish control until 1898. Guam was then handed over to the United States following the Spanish-American War. There are many Spanish Era buildings and WWII fortifications in Guam.
Voice of Travelers to Guam
JeeYoung from Korea
Hello, my name is Kim JeeYoung and I want to tell you about my trip to Guam. I bought an air ticket and flew to Guam from Seoul. The flight was with Korean Air. I had a lot of choice when booking my ticket, because as well as Korean Air, Jeju Air, T'Way Air and Jin Air all offer air tickets from Seoul to Guam. I booked my ticket through the website without trouble. I enjoyed the flight and thought the service on board was great. The aircraft was modern and I felt safe flying with Korean Air. In Guam I visited the Fish Eye Marine Observatory, where I've seen beautiful corals and fish. I also went diving and seen the incredible Blue Hole, which is a very deep drop in the reef.
John from the United States of America
Hi, I'm John from Honolulu. I love history and being from an island myself I am particularly interested in Pacific Islands' history. I decided to visit Guam to see the Gef Pa’go Cultural Village and WWII reinforcements. I booked my ticket with United Airlines. I redeemed miles I collected from previous tickets for this air ticket. The flight was comfortable, the food was good and I enjoyed the on-board entertainment. I watched an action movie. Soon I was in Guam. Once on the island I went on a historic walking tour. On Wednesday night I went to Guam's Chamorro Night Market which was very interesting. I enjoyed eating local Guam delicacies: kaleguen (a cold meat appetiser), barbequed meats with red rice and drinking Tuba, the fermented coconut drink.
