Thanks to its remoteness, the island nations that make up this region have had time to develop their own different very distinct identities and cultural traditions.

Comprised of the thousands of islands and coral atolls that surround Australasia, this region includes heavily touristed resort areas like Fiji and Tahiti as well as remote and secluded islands like Taha’a or the less bougie Niue, where there are less than 90 hotel rooms, total.
