First time to Guam

The past weekend I had a brief getaway with families and friends attending a wedding ceremony at the heavenly Guam, a US island to the west of Pacific Ocean, somewhere between the Philippines and Hawaii. As you can imagine, like Hawaii, Guam is known for its beautiful weather, tropical beaches and an indigenous culture.   Please do expect occasional showers, though.


As we made our booking separately and had different preferences, the gang was not staying in the same hotel.  We were staying in:

They are all nice and beautiful.

Mobility on the island is easy and convenient.  We were glad that we rented a car that made shopping easy, and allowed us to survive from the occasional yet heavy rain showers.


In fact, as we’d decided to rent a car before our trip, we started researching which car rental companies had their counters inside the airport. But we could not find too much information about it.  I thus purposely took some photos while I was there and would like to share them here.  They have Hertz, Budget, Avis, National, Nissan and Dollar Rent-a-Car counters plus some others located inside the terminal.

At night we saw a nice performance with brisky music played with the guitar and ukulele. I enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere and nice songs sung by a sonorous voice.
