East Timor travel guide

3.8
Monuments · Shopping · Specialty Museums
Rugged beaches lure many to take their holiday in East Timor, a former Portuguese colony that gained its independence in 2002 after a brutal occupation by Indonesia. With pristine reefs, steep mountains, mysterious jungle caves, and misty hillside villages, the country represents one of Asia's most charming destinations, where it's still possible to have an off-the-beaten-track adventure. Many choose to tour East Timor by car, stopping at various locations to snap photos, dive into the sea, and mingle with the locals at quaint settlements preserving age-old traditions lost to the rest of the world. Those preferring urban experiences concentrate on Dili, the ultra-relaxed capital with access to both sea and mountains.

West Papua travel guide

4.2
Reefs · Islands · Scuba & Snorkeling
Home to ancient tribal cultures and littered with hundreds of barely explored islands, there's an aura of wonder about the eastern Indonesian province of West Papua. The coastline's array of dramatic scenery, including hidden lagoons, shimmering waters, and insurmountably rocky islands, is sure to excite the imagination. While the province works through a complicated political situation--a big push for autonomy has long dominated news about West Papua--holiday-makers continue to come here, drawn by the remote location. You might need to obtain travel permits before planning a tour of West Papua's more far-flung areas, so check with the local authorities before you book anything.

Papua travel guide

3.8
Beaches · Landmarks · Bodies of Water
The vast, remote province of Papua is home to diverse tribes and multitudes of animal and plant species. Part of Indonesia since 1969, the area remains relatively underdeveloped, its major asset its well-preserved natural beauty. Some of the tribes, mostly those from the central highlands of Papua, still maintain their traditions and live uninfluenced by the rest of the world. Many endangered and endemic species call Papua their home, such as tree kangaroos and birds of paradise, as well as the world's largest butterflies and lizards. Papua tours lead to some of the most inaccessible rainforests in the world, challenging to access but extremely rewarding to behold.

Papua New Guinea travel guide

3.9
Zoos · Cemeteries · Hiking Trails
Occupying the eastern half of New Guinea and its offshore islands, Papua New Guinea represents an immense cultural and biological diversity. Densely carpeted in lush rainforest, the largely mountainous interior includes several active volcanoes. Because of this rugged landscape, Papua New Guinea remains one of the planet's least explored areas, thought to harbor as-yet undiscovered species. Remote mountain ranges nurture unique plant and animal life found nowhere else in the world, while the wildly fluctuating topography creates large differences in climate that further diversify the ecosystems. The people of Papua New Guinea are equally varied and distinct, with hundreds of tribes and communities--the vast majority of which are rural--and approximately 850 different languages. Don't expect much of a tourism infrastructure in Papua New Guinea (or infrastructure of any kind), but do expect any challenges to be richly rewarded by a real adventure unlike any other, in an untamed wilderness, untouched by commercialization.

Fiji travel guide

4.2
Scuba & Snorkeling · Marinas · Outdoor Activities
Located at the heart of the Central Pacific, Fiji is an archipelago of 333 islands and hundreds more tiny islets, many of which are uninhabited. The land masses range from vast Viti Levu, mountainous and covered in green jungle, to private desert islands available for rent. With bountiful sunshine, white sand beaches, tranquil oceans, and lush rainforest, it is no surprise that ecotourism in Fiji thrives. Local culture combines indigenous Fijian, Indo-Fijian, Asian, and European influences in a vibrant mix, with many of the smaller islands still retaining a strong element of traditional island life. Explore the countless pockets of paradise to find your favorite.

Vanuatu travel guide

4.4
Waterfalls · Nature & Parks · Scuba & Snorkeling
Composed of 83 rugged islands spread out over a stretch of nearly 1,300 km (810 mi), Vanuatu features a huge diversity of natural environments and cultures. A fusion of British, French, Polynesian, and Melanesian influences, the nation combines devout religious devotion with the slow, relaxed pace of island life. Lush rainforests and thriving coral sanctuaries abound across the island chain and feature a colorful array of native wildlife and plant species that make for fantastic snorkeling, diving, and hiking excursions. Active volcanoes remain among the biggest attractions in Vanuatu, along with the chain's stunning beaches and shimmering blue waters. Despite the nation's harsh volcanic landscapes, rocky coast, and lack of arable land, Vanuatu is a warm and welcoming place to visit, as its people do everything they can to make tourists feel right at home.
