Cheap flights from Palau

The pristine paradise of Palau, or more formally the Republic of Palau, is an archipelago-country located in the western Pacific Ocean. It is geographically part of the larger island group of Micronesia. The country's population of around 21,000 is scattered on the 16 states that make up the chain. Palau was originally settled around 3,000 years ago by migrants from the Philippines and sustained a Negrito population until around 900 years ago. Thereafter in the 18th century, the islands were first visited by Europeans, and were made part of the Spanish East Indies in 1885. After some years, the islands were sold to Imperial Germany in 1899 under the terms of the German-Spanish Treaty. Later on, the Japanese conquered the islands (World War I), but the United States took over in 1947 (World War II period, Mariana and Palau Islands campaign).

Today, Palau is a presidential republic in free association with the United States, which provides defense, funding, and access to social services. The United States Dollar is its currency, while the island's culture is mixed with Japanese, Micronesian, Melanesian, Filipino, and others.
