Tired of the same old, same old? Take a timeout from the mundane and book a trip to Micronesia. Located in the South Pacific off the coast of the Philippines, this cluster of 607 islands is perfect for an adventurous couple or a memorable family vacation. Micronesia, short for the Federated States of Micronesia, is unbelievably lush with rich flora and fauna, and coral reefs. When you book your hotels in Micronesia, you will notice that this beauty, along with the culture of different islands, makes Micronesia an irresistible destination.
Explore historic lighthouses, stroll through scenic beaches, enjoy gushing waterfalls, and gaze at the charming beauty of mountain peaks from the luxury of your Micronesia resorts. Four island groups—Yap, Chuuk, Pohnpei, and Kosrae—make up the Federated States of Micronesia. Each of these groups offers its own unique assortment of attractions for tourists. Among these, Yap, with its distinct history and stone money banks, is a terrific place to visit.
Hotels in Yap provide exactly the island vibe that travelers seek. With breathtaking sunsets and stunning foliage, Yap is among the most aesthetically pleasing destinations in the world. If you're looking to immerse yourself even deeper in the native culture, you can visit one of the local village's meeting houses, called pe'bai, and get a sense of how the people of Micronesia spend their day to day. Travelocity's Yap vacation packages ensure you won't miss out on the island's rich food and drink scene. The cuisine of Micronesia traditionally includes chicken, shellfish, coconuts, taro, citrus fruits, and bananas, but the gem of the island's culinary repertoire is the Pohnpeian pepper. Widely considered to be one of the best in the world, this full-flavored pepper is a must-try for foodies.
