Palau (sometimes spelled Belau or Pelew), officially the Republic of Palau is an island country located in the western Pacific Ocean. It is geographically part of the larger island group of Micronesia.The country’s population of around 21,000 is spread across 250 islands forming the western chain of the Caroline Islands. The most populous island is Koror (wikipedia)
Many years ago I was amazed by advertising one brand of TV with a beautiful picture on the screen. it was a picture of the 70 islands in Palau …
and I dreamed to visit the place .. although Indonesia and Palau are neighbors share maritime boundaries, but there are no direct flights to Palau from my country. Palau seemed so far away from Indonesia hehe .. because I have to fly to the Philippines(manila) first and then to Palau(koror)
and when I was there I was informed that seventy Islands barred by sea because it is a protected area. and the only way to visit is to fly over the islands. Phew … I must be dreaming again hehe
and finally on my last day in Palau, one of the company’s staff of scenic flights called me and I was surprised with the good news: You will fly today!
thanks Lolita and ABA …I flew with the pilot and one staff company. no other customers.they gave me a very cheap price and the price should be a minimum of 2 people. but because I was alone they charged one person.horaay!
SEVENTY ISLANDS !
