Guam is a tropical paradise complete with coral reefs and powdery beaches teeming with underwater life. Since 1950, Guam has been a US territory and there are just two seasons: rainy (July to November) and dry (December to June). Don’t let the rain keep you away as the downpours are usually brief. This island is best known for its Chamorro culture, beaches, and historical sites stemming from both World War II and Spanish colonization. Read to find out all the fun things you can do in Guam.

Dumeng Bay

Dumeng Bay is a meniscus-shaped and narrow Bay along the Philippine Sea with the highest concentration of tourists. Along this bay, there is a wide range of entertainment facilities, shopping places, and high-end hotels. In this sea area, clear fish, slow water, and shallow waves abound, making it a great place for snorkeling. Beyond that, there are also many churches on this bay, including the popular Rainbow Church.

Crystal Church

If you are looking for a place to hold a romantic wedding, the Crystal Church in Guam is your best bet. Not only is Crystal Church the most famous crystal church in Guam, but it is also the best church. The church is so named because of its glass lining, white chairs, and white piano lining. The blue sea and sky are visible from every corner of the window of the church. It is located at the headland on the northern side of Du Meng Wan.

The Underwater World is an aquarium funded by Duty-Free Shop and Louis Vuitton. It was constructed and designed by a world-renowned company, a US Aquarium Team Inc. The ocean world is on the first and second floors and it displays diversified fauna and flora. The Sam Choy restaurant is on the third and fourth floors, and it offers international standard catering services to visitors. Inside this aquarium is a 122m long acrylic tunnel, which is Asia’s longest underwater tunnel. To simulate a real underwater world, the tunnel has colorful coral reefs and tropical fish, as well as the wrecks of sunken ships and fake planes. If you want to have a close encounter with the sea creatures, you can swim with feed sharks and turtles under the guidance of the aquarium’s divers.

Greensboro, North Carolina Travel Guide

With its outer ring of city sprawl and aging brick buildings, Greensboro might not seem very attractive at first, but allow it to grow on you. This city is full of energy, a feeling of possibility and excitement created by an influx of travelers, which include immigrants, business people, and students from across the globe. This mix of native and new folks makes this unassuming city very diverse in virtually all aspects of daily life. Thanks to some colleagues of mine who own an Edmonton garbage bin rental company and recently visited Greensboro, here are the top must-see attractions in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Greensboro Science Center

North Carolina is one of the most science-oriented states in the U.S. thanks to the Research Triangle. Located a bit to the north of the city on Lawndale Drive, the Greensboro Science Center is the number one museum for science fans. Its emphasis is heavily on biology, so a huge collection of land and marine animals are hosted here, including blue poison dark frogs and Chilean tarantulas. You will also find SKYWILD, an adventure park and exhibits dedicated to health, dinosaurs, and weather.

North Carolina State Capitol

Dating back to the 17th century, the Capitol is a stylish building at the city’s heart. Although it doesn’t host the legislature again, the governor still works here. Today, a tour of the Capitol provides an imaginative peek into how the governance of the state functioned for more than 100 years. Also, it includes a reconstruction of what the State Library looked like in 1856.

Weatherspoon Art Museum

The Weatherspoon Art Museum is located within the premises of the state university. It is a cultural treasure that any visual arts lover would love to visit. Its doors first opened in 1941 and it features a huge collection of big-name artists’ modern works like Warhol, Calder, Bourgeois de Kooning, and Rauschenberg. Basically, the museum showcases the past century best America art. Also, the museum hosts a schedule of workshops and informative talks, so you can learn more about the artists and their works.

National Military Park

This revolutionary war revelation is a must-see for those interested in the War of American Independence. The national monument was built in commemoration of the Guilford Courthouse Battle which happened in 1781. Located just some miles north of the city’s downtown area, this park is more than a memorial. It is also home to about 2.5 miles of historic trails, and you can join tours to follow the flow and ebb of the battle.
