Known as Truk Lagoon, the Chuuk State is a series of mangrove bordered islands, 11 to be exact, in the Chuuk Lagoon. It also consists of 14 other low and outlying islands. One of the planet’s biggest enclosed bodies of water, the Truk is bordered by 225 km reef, covering over 200 sq kilometers and is home to a fleet of Japanese ships sunk in 1944. Frozen in time, the wrecks in the region are now considered an underwater museum. The wrecks are still complete with skeletons, tanks, jeeps, and sake cups still attached inside the ships themselves. Amazing corals in a scenic underwater world with different shapes and colors attract divers of all levels of experience. Large schools of tropical fishes live in the wrecks. Nowhere else in the whole planet can a diver see this many wrecks in close range with each other in a clear shallow waters. A lot of the wrecks are observable through snorkeling and many on-shore locations can be visited.

I will be staying at Blue Lagoon Resort the last 2 weeks of January 2018. I also like to flyfish the saltwater flats. Do you know if the aera flats hold any Bonefish, Permit or Tarpon?
Thanks, Jay

Hello, how are you?
Be so kind please and let me know where to buy some picture postcards of Chuuk. I can pay by PayPal service or cash by priority registered letter.
Any useful info or contact link will be welcomed very!
I have a great collection of US Micronesia, over 800 postcards of 1960-2018. I look for any other missing in my archive.
Hope you or someone of your friends could help me.
Thank you very much for kindness and have you a nice happy day!
Best greetings,

The East-West Center in Honolulu, Hawai‘i is pleased to announce the Pacific Islands Tourism Professional Fellows Program for 2018-2019. This program will bring two cohorts of tourism industry professionals from the Pacific Islands to Honolulu, Hawai‘i for intensive six-week programs that will build significant new capacity and facilitate enduring professional bonds between industry leaders in the United States and the Pacific Islands.

The Pacific Islands Tourism Professional Fellows Program will draw broadly and deeply upon Hawaii’s unique position as an American state with one of the world’s premier tourism industries. It is designed to build capacity across the Pacific region by creating strong and enduring connections between 32 mid-level Professional Fellows from 13 Pacific island countries and no fewer than 13 Hawaii-based Americans in private and public tourism-related organizations.

The Program is funded by a generous grant from the Professional Fellows Division in the Office of Citizen Exchanges at the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.

More Information About Applying Can Be Found Here:


Applicants must be citizens/nationals/permanent residents of one of the eligible countries; be between the ages of 25-40; be currently employed in their home country and have a demonstrated history of at least 2 years of employment in the tourism industry; be willing and able to obtain a J-1 visa and spend 6-weeks in the United States; is committed to returning to their home country after the program; have a track record of making an impact in their organization, company, or community; be capable of creating an action-orientated plan to address a specific business problem or policy challenge being faced in their country; and have sufficient spoken and written English language proficiency to effectively function in an American workplace.

The Professional Fellows Program

The Professional Fellows Program (PFP) is a two-way, global exchange program designed to promote mutual understanding, enhance leadership and professional skills, as well as build lasting, sustainable partnerships between mid-level emerging leaders from foreign countries and the United States. PFP participants are placed in intensive 5-6 week fellowships in non-profit organizations, private sector businesses, and government offices across the United States for an individually tailored professional development experience. They build a broad network with American and other program participant colleagues as they develop a deeper understanding of U.S. society. The PFP is a two-way exchange, with American participants who have hosted foreign fellows traveling overseas for participant-driven reciprocal programs.

The Deadline for Applications Is March 30, 2018

I would like to know the entry requirement into Truk lagoon. I hold an Indonesian pasport, but I am also an Australian Permanent Resident and currently reside in Perth. Do I need a US visa to enter Truk? I will be flying from Sydney, Australia using Air Niugini with a stop in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea.
