Cheap flights from Guam

Guam is an island in the western North Pacific Ocean which lies about three-quarters of the way from Hawaii to the Philippines, but is considered a territory of the United States of the America and is one of its only five territories with an established civilian government. Guam is the largest and southernmost of the Mariana Islands, with a floor area of 212 square miles that serves as home to around 166,000 people who are predominantly of Chamorro and Filipino descents. Guam's economy is supported by its primary industry which is tourism as this small island prides itself as a tourist attraction. 29% of the land is covered by the United States military jurisdiction, with multiple naval and air force bases situated in various areas of Guam.

Where to go

Hagatna is the capital city of Guam and this is where you will find the seat of the government, as well as a historic walking path through the Chamorro village. You will also find other interesting structures here such as the Council of the Arts and Humanities gallery and a multi-storeyed latte stone built next to Adelup on the beach and if you are lucky enough, you might be able to visit Hagatna with the new Guam Museum which is currently being constructed. In a suburban area in the hills above Hagatna, you will find Fort Apugan, a Spanish Era fort that looks out over the Hagatna Bay and the island of Guam. There are also two notable parks worth visiting: The Asan Beach Park where the Marines and Army landed to retake the island in 1944; and the Gef Pa'go Cultural Park where you will find handicrafts, dance performances, and local delicacies. Mangilao is where you will find the University of Guam and Guam Community College, which are both considered as higher learning institutions on the island. After touring the entire place, make a final stop at the district of Tumon where you can find high-end shopping malls and hotels, as well as a vivid nightlife filled with adult entertainment.

Short haul flights from Guam should include a visit to its neighbouring Asian countries, most notably that of the Philippines where it shares historical ties. Visit the island of Cebu where one of Guam's famous visitors, Ferdinand Magellan, met his demise at the hands of its local heroes. A trip to Japan would also be nice, considering that majority of tourists in Guam are of Japanese descent. Tour its cities filled with ancient and modern castles, as well as the beautiful Mt. Fuji and the numerous festivals that Japanese people celebrate.

From Guam, travellers may explore areas in Europe and Australia, most notably Spain, where most of its conquerors from almost a century ago, originated. Mexico is also believed to have some cultural tie with Guam and should be on a short list of places to visit for long haul flights as well.
