Micronesia is about three-quarters of the way from Hawaii to Indonesia, and its remoteness and limited flight schedules have curtailed the development of the tourism industry, a bonus for the travelers seeking UNSPOILED natural beauty and and ABSENSE OF CROWDS. As of May 2010, the only international airline servicing Micronesia is Continental Airlines, which offers flights from the US mainland via Hawaii or Guam. On the islands, many hotels and resorts offer shuttle services, and car rentals are available. Local charter companies offer flights to the outer islands, and there is regular boat services between islands. According to the FSM Visitors Board, you should allow several months to plan a visit to the remote outer islands, as it can be logistically complicated.
Practical Information

The official language of the Federated States of Micronesia is English, with eight indigenous languages also spoken. US dollars are the legal currency, and major credit cards are accepted at larger hotels and resorts and many dive shops. Temperatures throughout Micronesia average 80 degrees F all year; rainfall is heaviest in late spring and early summer. There is a small chance of typhoons between June and December. Pohnpei is especially rainy -- one of the rainiest places in the world, according to Lonely Planet. US citizens must have either a passport or certified birth certificate to enter FSM.
Natural Attractions
The islands vary considerably in landscape. Some are high and mountainous, some are flat coral atolls, and some are rugged volcanic outcroppings. Sokehs Rock, a prominent cliff face, is a dramatic landmark on Pohnpei, and the strenuous, steep hike to the top is best done with a guide. The freshwater streams, waterfalls and natural swimming pools of Pohnpei evoke images of a Pacific island paradise, while Kosrae was called the most beautiful island in Micronesia by Lonely Planet. Throughout the islands you will find pristine sandy beaches, waterfalls, lakes and streams, gorges and valleys, mangrove forests and grasslands. The tropical vegetation that thrives on the islands includes orchids, hibiscus, coconut, plumeria and banana trees.
Thanks for the great report. I may be going diving there in 2014. Sounds like paradise above and below the water.

don't forget, there are more micronesians on the front lines of each war than any other state in the US. micronesians also have the highest number of combat related deaths per capita than any other state in the US. I belive it's 5 times higher.

many of the islands in micronesia are used today for top secret naval and air force bases. some of the US's most top secret military projects are conducted on these islands. which is smart and perfect, since it's in the middle of the ocean.

these people gave up their waters, lands, way of life and lives to the US government. in exchange the US promised them free education, health care and access to the US.

Um, other than the fact that you are immigrants who are legally allowed to 'freeload' off of taxpayers by collecting welfare, taking up public housing that should be set aside only for US citizens, making us pay your medical bills, getting US scholarships that should go to US citizens and taking up jobs that should be OURS...

Well other than THAT... there are just too damn many of you in Hawai'i. Hawaiians are struggling to not be extinct in their own homeland where they are a minority and here comes yet ANOTHER set of immigrants.

I think the real question should be "what are the micronesians going to do IF America doesnt extend the treaty in 2023 and you are no longer allowed to freely live on American land and OFF of our taxpayers." Not that it's likely to happen since America wants to keep the access to their land and waterways. I cant help but think that we are getting the shorter end of the stick here.

I'm a Micronesian, and I've been living in Hawaii for more than 30 years now. not once have I ever been on welfare. I am married to a Hawaiian woman and our children look more Hawaiian than the hawaiians of today.

I know hundreds of micronesians who are in the US and not on welfare as well. I know micronesians who have been living in the US since the 60's. they are doctors, teachers, police officers, lawyers, etc. they keep their micronesian citizenship because they don't see the need to change.

There are probably micronesians that you pass off as polynesian or even european because you are bashing a people you don't even know.

the US made an agreement with my people. we have kept our end, and the US has been keeping theirs (but barely). Just like the Italians, Irish, Japanese and Chinese who immigrated to the US in the 1900's, we have been ridiculed, beaten, spat on, and threatened to be forced out of this country. However, just like those immigrants, history is going to remember us as true Americans(America was built by Immigrants) who were victims of racist bigots and hate.

In my personal experience, Micronisians are happy, caring, welcoming, proud people who value family above all else. When I lived there as a Peace Corps Volunteer, I was welcomed with open arms and quickly became a part of their community. Although they are not all as described above, I challenge whomever is writing these hateful things to find a country or region where everyone is perfect.

. Who ever you are, if you guys didn't join the US you guys will be worst than the Micronesians. You guys can't even work on your pine farms because you think you are too "cool". You are not Hawaiian, you must be a mixed breed. Go to hell.

Micronesians need to study the works of Martin Luther King, Gloria Steinhem, ku klux klan. Then, they will be truly recognized.

Micronesians are good people. And just like every other race, there are the bad ones too. The problem with most people is that, you guys focus too much on the negative. That is why you only see the uneducated Micronesians who can't even speak English, and doesn't know what to do with his/her life. I lived in Hawaii (Oahu) and I had Micronesian friends, some were from Pohnpei and some were Palauans. They were attractive girls, and when I hang out with them we always get guys attention. If they guys are from the mainland (Haoles or Black) they are very kind and they think these girls are exotic because they are Micronesians. But the Local guys (filipinos,japs mix) they say to the girls, "No way. You can't be Micronesian. You're too pretty" Like wow! Ignorance at it's best! You guys are so stupid, I swear. You probably don't even notice the hot Micronesian chicks cause you are too convinced that they are all FOB,wearing that skirt and sloppy. Well, NEWSFLASH! You are all so wrong! You are all full of hatred. Have some compassion for the less fortunate. Before you judge, maybe you should do a little research on where these people come from, and how were they brought up. Also, there are far too many hateful people in this World already. We don't need anymore. It's so sad that our Hawaii is so full of hate now.#DisgustedByBigotry

Another thing, I went to Chaminade from 2002 to 2006 and that's where I met my Micronesian friends. They were from all over Micronesia. And FYI to the stupid people who do not know what they're talking about, Micronesia is not a country. Instead of spreading hate online, maybe you should READ and educate yourself before you start talking smack. So..back the Chaminade topic; my Micronesian friends that I went to school with were infact straight A students. They loved education more than anything. I still keep in touch with some of them, and two of them recently got their master's from UH Manoa. I don't even know why I'm wasting time on this forum where obviously, only stupid people frequent. Considering how stupid you all are, you probably don't even undestand what I'm saying. It's all very simple english...oh well, ciao!

Thanks for that CourtneyT, I too know a bunch of Micronesians and many of them are really smart. The ones I know are not on welfare and they are more passionate about making a difference in Hawaii and their homeland than anyone I have ever met or known who is an American. Aloha

I can't believe what I am reading. You all sound like a bunch of Jim Crow Southerners. I thought more of the Hawaiian people. I expected more tolerance and understanding. Instead, you hurl stereotypes and racial epitaphs because you fear the unknown. You have truly assimilated! Go and get educated you bunch of neanderthals!

Easy for you to say. YOu dont live amongst the micro moochers. They don't know how to dress and speak. All they do is collect welfare, get drunk then stab each other.
