Top 5 Things to See in Vanuatu - Pleasingly Pacific

Vanuatu has some of the warmest and friendliest people in the Pacific. Below are the best things you can do while you are on holiday here.


Enjoy the holiday in an exclusive resort

Free from all the modern-day commercialized and targeted holiday destinations, Vanuatu is still full of pristine environments and friendly people along with some exclusive resorts and international hotel brands. Unlike the crowded destination hubs in most parts of the world, Vanuatu still has a little bit of privacy left for you if you choose to stay at the best hotels in Vanuatu the likes of Holiday Inn Resort Vanuatu. Have a great time away from the city and the crowds while you rejuvenate by the waters.


Take a look at the active volcano

Situated on the island of Tanna, Mount Yasur is about an hour away from Port Vila if you are flying. This volcano is very much active and still alive, therefore, it is always bubbling and throwing gas up in the air. You will be able to get close to the mountain but you will have to stop at the parking lot with your vehicle. After you get off your vehicle, you will have to hike for about 10 minutes to reach the summit. The hissing and the gurgling sound of the volcano is something you will not forget in your life. To check how hot this active volcano can be, you can throw a piece of rock in the air and when it passes over the open volcano it will glow bright red before it falls inside.


The markets

After you are done exploring the active volcano in the area, you will also be able to check out the various markets that are found here. If you are a shopaholic and love to do a bit of purchasing during your holiday in any part of the world, this handicraft market is the best place for you to go to. Though it is a very touristy place, you will still be able to find authentic art and artefacts for you to take back home from your holiday. If you are into paintings and carvings you will be able to find them here too. If you walk further down the main street of this market you will be treated with the sight of fresh local vegetables and fruits that will be up for sale. There will also be many food stalls at which you can try a few staple dishes. Exploring this market is a great way for you to learn about the daily lives of the people of Vanuatu.


Journey of food

This part of the Pacific is popular for its delicious food and if you are in the area for a longer time, certainly visit the local cafes and the beach eateries. Most of these places are located right by the water and serves delicious meals made with seafood caught fresh during the day.


Kava treats

Enjoy a glass of this unique drink when in Vanuatu. Unlike in other countries, all you have to do is head over to the nearest juice bar and order a glass of Kava for yourself.
