In the Palau part of this tour, we stay for around 3 nights, 4 days seeing all the major sites. This can be as a standalone, or was part of the longer tour.

Independent Tours to Palau

As such we can arrange independent and bespoke travel packages to Palau, either as standalone, or as part of a wider Pacific, or Least Visited package.

Example Palau Itinerary

Day 1 – Palau 

  • There are three main flights into Palau — all of which are on a Friday — from Guam, Taipei or Manila, with the Taipei flight arriving at 6:25pm, the Guam flight arriving at 9:00pm, and the Manila flight coming in after midnight at 2:35am (flight to Palau not included)
  • Transfer to our hotel and overnight in Palau

Day 2 – Palau


  • Breakfast in hotel

  • Group lunch at the hotel and you can properly meet the YPT guide and your fellow travellers
  • In the afternoon we head out for a once-in-a-lifetime experience: snorkelling at Palau Jellyfish Lake! The jellyfish have evolved away their stingers, having no natural predators around, and make for a phenomenal natural sight!
  • Dinner at Carp, which mixes Japanese and local cuisine
  • Overnight in Palau

Day 3 – Palau


  • After breakfast we head out on the first of what will be many WWII trips on our Least Visited Countries tour. The Pacific Islands were the scene of many battles and the region is often overlooked for this side of its history — by Europeans at least!
  • We head out in YPT style, by speedboat, to the island of Peleliu which was home to some of the fiercest battles in the region
  • On arrival we check out the World War Two Memorial Museum, but the whole island has basically been left as an open-air museum.


  • Lunch in a local restaurant
  • Check out White Beach where the American military landed, the wreckage of American tanks and planes still left as they were, concrete pillboxes and Japanese machine-gun posts as well as the eerie shell of the Japanese Military Headquarters. We also visit the Japanese shrine built to commemorate those who died
  • Head back to the main island and go for dinner at Taj for Indian food
  • Check out of the hotel and head for the airport
