Federated States of Micronesia Holidays & Hotels
Spread across 2,500 kilometers of the north-western Pacific Ocean, just north of the equator, the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) consist of the four states of Chuuk, Kosrae, Pohnpei and Yap and their more than 600 widespread islands (only 65 of which are currently inhabited). The islands states of FSM without a doubt deserve the label "The lands that time forgot." Each state has its own traditions and culture, but all the isles, islets, and atolls in this multi-island nation have one thing in common – unspoiled, untouched, jaw-dropping, Eden-like beauty.
None of the Micronesia islands get a lot of tourist traffic, so the residents, like their land, remain unchanged; they're quite shy of visitors but if you respect their land and their space, they'll welcome you with open arms.

Federated States Micronesia Holidays Overview
The state of Yap has incredible diving around the island's coral reefs and the crystalline lagoon, home to giant manta rays, and is known for its large (~4m), traditional stone money discs; although not still really used as currency, the islanders do know the ownership history of each and every one. Yap has rolling hills with lowlands covered with thick mangroves; the city of Colonia is a bit urbanised, offering hotels and resorts along with smaller apartments for your stay, but Yap inhabitants stick to the old ways, wearing loin cloths and grass skirts, living off the land and sea, and keeping to themselves.
