The Pacific Region is made up of 23 nations and 20,000 to 30,000 islands. In a huge contrast is the estimated population of 10 million people (excluding Australia and New Zealand). In 2010 the city of Beijing held a population of nearly 20 million, meeting the entire population of the pacific islands and doubling it.
Less people however means more space, more beaches, and more opportunities.
Many of the islands have cashed in on the tourism industry and some see it as their primary source of income, and why not? They have all the scenery we dream of with a climate to match.
June through to early September is the preferred time to visit so watch out for deals from February onwards. The temperature is a little less intense in these months and they are usually followed by a rainy season before the burning summer arrives in December through to early February.
