The Tourist Attractions of Marshall Islands:
Although the Marshall Islands do have a lot to offer visitors, as yet the islands haven’t been heavily developed and the government isn’t really taking advantage of the opportunities. But, this does mean that if you visit the Marshall Islands right now you’re far more likely to be able to experience the authentic culture of the islands than if you visit in years to come when much development has taken place. This means that the Marshall Islands are a great place to visit for people who prefer to travel independently and away from the crowds.
The Marshall Islands gives visitors a more relaxed pace of life. The most popular pastimes here include fishing and boating and as a visitor you are bound to get involved with some aspect of these!
Charter boat tours for example are an excellent way of exploring the islands and atolls and what better way to enjoy some snorkelling or scuba diving in this Pacific paradise – coral reefs are abound and there are exciting wrecks such as at Bikini Atoll and Kwajalein Atoll to investigate. Sport fishing is very popular and is said to be excellent here in the Marshall Islands so you have the chance to catch some amazing marine life!
Some wonderful handicrafts are produced on the Marshall Islands, so you can buy some for yourself or friends and family. The handicrafts are renowned for their originality and artistic quality and include jewellery, hats, mats, model canoes, baskets and more.
For evenings in the Marshall Islands you can sample cuisine from all over Asia and the Pacific as you’ll find Chinese, Korean, Indian, Vietnamese, Japanese and Western foods here as well as a good variety of Marshall Islands local favourites too.
