Guam Holidays – Tours & Adventure Travel Guide

PureTravel Says
“Guam is an island located in the western Pacific Ocean and is a US territory. On a total area of 209 square miles, a diverse range of inhabitants can be found on this island. The Central region, however, is densely populated as most of the people live in the cities located in the central region. Even though some people argue that there is no city in Guam because of the low population, but you can still call them small cities. Most of the population can be found in the cities like Agana, Tumon Dededo, Tamuning, Barrigada and Agana Heights which is another reason why these cities are perfect for tourism.”
