Travel to Tuvalu

There are places in the world that, perhaps, you have never heard of. This is the case in Tuvalu . Looking at it from the sky, we could say that this island is like a mirage in the middle of the vastness of the Pacific. This small island is covered by a strip of palm trees that makes it a much more mysterious place .

If you decide to spend your holidays there, you should hurry as the issue of global warming worries scientists a lot since it is only 5 meters above sea level, which could make this mini-paradise disappear. Time passes slowly in the area. The sun is the only protagonist of the place and as soon as it begins to appear, you must quickly look for a shade in which to shelter.

It gets so hot in the area that, at times, it is impossible to move or think fast. Relax and enjoy the lack of hustle and bustle. Prepare to have to pass mainly bicycles and so that your feet become the best means of transport you can find. Formerly it was known as the Ellice Islands, it has a total area of 25 square kilometers.

Do not "skip" the siesta or the spectacular sunsets. Its official currency is the Tuvalu dollar which is equivalent to about 50 cents in New Zealand . There is only one bank that is located in the capital, Funafuti. Forget about credit cards as payment is only accepted in cash.
