Cook Islands travel guide

4.2
Beaches · Concerts & Shows · Scuba & Snorkeling
Scattered across a 2,200,000 sq km (849,425 sq mi) zone in the vast Pacific Ocean, roughly halfway between New Zealand and Hawaii, the Cook Islands are about as remote a holiday destination as you will find. With their pristine white-sand beaches, tranquil azure lagoons, lush tropical jungles, and teeming coral reefs, the 15 islands seem plucked from a picture postcard of paradise. Relaxation comes first and foremost, for locals as much as tourists, and you will find the laid-back lifestyle of the Cook Islanders as infectious as their warm smiles. As tempting (and fulfilling) as it might be to spend all day swinging lazily in a hammock strung between shady palm trees, plenty of adventures await exploring the idyllic scenery overland, on the waves, and undersea.

Tuvalu travel guide

3.9
Nature & Parks · Government Buildings
A group of tiny atolls and reef islands in the South Pacific, Tuvalu offers plenty of seaside appeal. Most visitors start and end their tour of Tuvalu on Fongfale, the main islet where you'll find the majority of accommodations and other tourist-oriented facilities. Beaches fringed by palms remain the main attractions on Tuvalu, with visitors coming to dive and snorkel the waters sheltering a variety of tropical fish and sea turtles. Others head for the uninhabited islets, which provide no amenities but plenty of chances to spot a range of sea birds.

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.

A Bali tour uncovers some of the world's best surfing spots, as well as a deeply spiritual local culture and globally significant archeological attractions.

Java travel guide

Today, the four states each have their distinct culture, but share a common ideal of sustainability coupled with an abundance of biological diversity on land and at sea.

Vietnam travel guide

Gift & Specialty Shops · Spas · Landmarks
While most Southeast Asian countries have at least one booming metropolis, none seem to bustle nearly throughout like Vietnam does. While busy locals zoom about on motorbikes, visitors fill their Vietnam vacations with a mix of cultural sightseeing and exploring the landscape. Big cities and towns boast colonial architecture, open-air markets, outstanding spa complexes, and modern restaurants. The country also features over 3,200 km (2,000 mi) of coastline dotted with sandy bays that attract scuba divers and kitesurfers.
