Book Description

Sept. 29 2003 Moon Micronesia
From the mysterious ruins of Pohnpei to Saipan's historic beaches, the islands of Micronesia offer the traveler hundreds of intriguing destinations to explore. Looking for more than the standard itinerary? Explore the sunken Japanese fleet in Chuuk Lagoon or celebrate with the locals at the annual Arts Festival in Palau. Neil Levy, a renowned South Pacific travel expert, brings the islands and atolls of Micronesia within reach of travelers who, on any budget, are looking to experience the full bounty of these incredible islands. This guide covers all four Pacific archipelagos: Guam; the Republics of Palau, Kiribati, the Marshall Islands, and Nauru; the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas, including Saipan, and the Federated States of Micronesia. Completely updated and revised, the sixth edition of Moon Handbooks Micronesia, is packed with the most current information on sightseeing options, diving and recreation, accommodations, and restaurants, as well as custom maps, color photographs, fascinating sidebars, and a complete coverage of the area's culture, history, and social issues.

4.0 out of 5 stars Micronesia Travel Jan. 3 2007
By Madison Warner - Published on Amazon.com
Great overview for the traveler to Micronesia. I changed my travel plans on which islands to visit based on the information in this book. The only drawback is, and this is true for all travel books, information becomes outdated quickly and so this one needs an update.

4.0 out of 5 stars In 2011 still the best guidebook for the region July 3 2011
By TaG - Published on Amazon.com
While prices have changed (a little) and some new establishments have opened this still is the best, most detailed guide to the region.
The difficult question is not a hotel's current price (easy to ascertain) but whether you should stay there. This guide provides good descriptions of accommodations allowing you to make an educated choice.
Information for independent sightseeing is offered. It's the guide to take with you to guide you while you are in Micronesia.
Certain things are outdated/not mentioned for example water activity permits in Palau but those aren't mentioned in that ex Peace Corps 2010 guidebook either.

1.0 out of 5 stars Barely mentions the sights May 26 2007
By Douglas D. Bower - Published on Amazon.com
I got this book for an upcoming trip to Guam and Saipan. This book barely makes mention of the various sites and attractions, especially the WW II sites. With the War in the Pacific Museum still shut down, it's more important than ever to have a good accounting of what's there and how to get to it. The older 2000 edition Lonely Planet Micronesia has more information than this.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If what you're looking for is a concise yet very useful guide to the Western Pacific Islands, here is it. I used it in conjunction with other guides and found that it stands on its own as a comprehensive refernce source. Good buy.
