    Honiara, located on the northern coast of the island of Guadalcanal, is the capital of the Solomon Islands, which lie between Vanuatu and Papua New Guinea. Pijin is the principal language. The climate is tropical, and while the most pleasant time to visit is winter, July to September, the cooling sea breezes temper the humidity and heat along all coasts year-round. The island became the scene of the important Guadalcanal Campaign during World War II. Read more about Honiara, Solomon Islands

    5 Thursday, June 23, 2022 Gizo, Solomon Islands 7:00 AM 5:00 PM
    View of Gizo, Solomon Islands

    Gizo is the capital of the Western Province in the Solomon Islands, situated on Ghizo Island, approximately 380 km WNW of the capital Honiara, and is the second largest town in the country. According to local stories the area had a history of head-hunting, so nearby tribes took the unusual step of joining together to obliterate the Gizo tribe. As a result, the land became state-owned and prospered as an administrative and business centre. The small landing strip on the nearby island of Nusatupe makes Gizo relatively developed compared to other settlements in the vicinity. Read more about Gizo, Solomon Islands

Almost the entire old town of Rabaul is buried under volcanic ash, the result of a volcanic eruption in 1994, and one is in awe of the scenery, which resembles an alien prehistoric landscape. Mt Tavurvur is still active and makes for a very interesting trekking tour. Read more about Rabaul, Papua New Guinea
