Dream destination: Guam

I would like to visit Guam someday as per my friend’s recommendation. She said Guam has modern shopping malls and golf courses, and many historic and cultural sites to visit.

This is what i learned more about Guam:

Guam is a Micronesian island that is home to the world’s largest Kmart. Due to its unique duty-free status, many goods are significantly cheaper in Guam than they would be elsewhere. Tumon, the tourist center of Guam, has twoTumonmajor shopping malls complete with food courts and movie theaters. In addition, the Micronesia Mall has an indoor fun park with a merry-go-round and roller coaster. For local produce and handicrafts, try the Chamorro Village which also features weekly cultural dances and demonstrations by local craftsmen. Several companies offer shuttle busses that stop at all the major shopping areas and hotels.

Guam is also known for its seven world-class golf resorts. The Talafofo course was designed by nine of the world’s top golfers. The course at the Mangilao Country Club has been ranked among the best in the Pacific. All seven of Guam’s golf courses are open to the public and the welcome players of all skill levels.

If you prefer to spend time in the water, Guam has wonderful diving spots. Located just off the Marianas Trench, the island’s dive features include hundreds of varieties of fish and coral, sheer walls, and access to a number of marine preserves. Divers may also enjoy exploring some of Guam’s World War II ship and airplane wrecks. Several diver operations offer equipment, instruction and diving guides. Guam offers other exciting activities such as kayaking canals, swimming through aquariums, wind surfing and parasailing. Some hotels and resorts on the island also offer their own activities. For just relaxing on the beach, try Gun Beach. Named for the old Japanese gun hidden in the nearby forest, the beach is known for its orange sand with star-shaped points.
