Guam is in the South Pacific Ocean, on the Philippine Sea. Controlled by Spain until 1898, when it was surrendered to the USA during the Spanish-American War, Guam has a mixed population spread across its 48-kilometre length and 6 to 19-kilometre width. More than one-third are native Chamorros and the next-largest group are Filipino. In line with the island's history, European, Spanish, Japanese, Korean and Chinese descendents are also settled on Guam.
Its tourist hub, Tumon, features large hotels, duty-free shopping, an indoor aquarium and Las Vegas-styled shows, all of which are popular with the plentiful Japanese tourists. The attractive Tumon Bay has been declared a marine wildlife reserve and there is a sea turtle refuge in northern Guam.
Tourism, US military spending and the export of fish and handicrafts are major influences on Guam's economy. One of the benefits of having such a large US military presence on the island is the significant telecommunications capabilities – you'll have no problem getting mobile phone reception or internet access here!
