How to get there:
No matter where you are in the world these islands are remote and it will take a few stops to get there.
But basically every major international airport will get you there most likely with your final departure out of south east Asia.

Snorkel: I would definitely check out Jellyfish Lake. Thousands of years ago this lake was connected to the ocean but over time the limestone formed cutting off all access trapping the jelly fish inside. What that means is that over the years since there were no predators they evolved and lost their stinging capabilities. Over 10 million jellies now call Jellyfish Lake home so go, see, and swim!

Or if jellyfish aren’t your thing head to the beach for an inshore swim!

WWII History Tour:
Here is what Sam’s Tours of Palau has to say about the history significance of the island.

From an aerial view it is quite deciving because you really just see water and jungle but Palau does offer a diverse number of accommodations. Take your pick from luxury resorts, bungalows, motels, hotels, b&bs, live aboard a boat, or stay with a local family! It seems that the majority of travelers choose to call the island of Koror home because that is where the majority of resorts and hotels are located but if you are in search of privacy try the northern and southern islands for a bungalow.
The visitor guide website is a great reference to find the perfect accommodations for your needs!
