Not many tourists visit The Marshall Islands, because they are hard to reach. People think that some of the islands are “no-go” zones having been used for nuclear testing, but they don’t know that the area is enormous and there are over 1.000 islands with ancient traditions that are waiting to be descovered. A tropical wonderland waiting for exploration. So actually, they might be an opportunity for intrepid travelers wanting to avoid the regular pacific paradise tourist trap. More info here.
