***Due to the fickle nature of flights and airlines in the least visited part of the world, the final dates and itinerary for this tour are not fully confirmed. When we have the final flights schedules we will adjust accordingly. Do not book flights to and from this tour until we confirm***
It has never been said by anyone that prequel trilogies are unnecessary, and so in our quest to visit every Pacific nation in one tour YPT brings you the Least Visited Countries Prequel tour.
We start our tour in Palau, an independent country in free association with the United States, and explore its World War Two history, island culture and make the most out of some of the best waters the planet has to offer with options to dive, snorkel, kayak and even swim in the infamous Jellyfish Lake!
We’ll head on to Pohnpei, the main island of the Federated States of Micronesia for Christmas Day and another country ticked off the list, while we also check out Japanese war remnants and local markets.
This tour can be done as a standalone tour but it makes more sense to continue and join us on Part 1 of the tour where we visit the Marshall Islands, Nauru, Kiribati and the Solomon Islands on the original Least Visited Countries tour!

ATTENTION – Since we are changing plane in Guam and Guam is USA territory, we need to go through US Immigration even though we are staying in the airport. This means that you will need either need a Guam-Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas Visa Waiver (given on arrival to citizens of Australia, New Zealand, UK, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore), an ESTA (given online if you are eligible) or a visa-free entry (Canadians and Americans). If you are not eligible for any of those, you will need a visa for the USA (either tourist or transit) to transit in Guam.
