Overview

Tonga has eluded outsiders for much of its history. From the imperial powers of Europe to modern-day travelers, Tonga has often been overlooked amongst the South Pacific island nations. But for those who do venture to this archipelago nation, a timeless Polynesian experience awaits; one that is all its own. The writers of this guidebook each lived, worked and played throughout Tonga as Peace Corps Volunteers. They lived with local families, learned village life, and experienced this fascinating country like few outsiders have before. Each writes of the island group where they lived - all reviews are from first-hand experience and local insider information. This comprehensive guidebook covers cultural norms (such as the eyebrow flick and greeting sniff), explains the curious clothing fashions, and divulges secret spots known only to locals. To see the real Tonga and to travel like a local, this book is a must.

This is a must read book for anyone headed to Tonga. It is the most current, accurate, detailed, comprehensive guide there is on the market for travel in Tonga. There are great tips and advice on what to see and do with so many choices and options to assist with trip planning. It wets the appetite for things to do and see with a variety of activities and levels of comfort or adventure depending on your style. There are hidden gems, amazing natural settings for snorkeling, scuba diving, hiking, private remote beaches and life undisturbed like few places on earth. The book is well written, has excellent side stories that give a real understanding on how to relate with Tongans and what is culturally current and respectful. There are fun personal perspectives and experiences on the islands that add value to understanding the country. Great read and great place to travel! Thanks!
