Guam Visitors Bureau Launches New Web Site

 The Guam Visitors Bureau has launched a new, comprehensive Web site (http://www.visitguam.org) that is the definitive source of information for travel agents and meeting planners with clients or groups interested in visiting the Micronesian island. The site is also a useful resource for those travel professionals who simply want to learn more about Guam as a destination.

"Our new Web site is an extremely helpful tool for planning leisure or business trips to Guam," comments Guam Visitors Bureau General Manager Alberto "Tony" A.C. Lamorena, V. "It gives travel professionals immediate access to the most up-to-date information about our island tourism industry along with a real sense of Guam's Chamorro people and their rich culture and history - all with the click of a mouse."

The easily navigated and colorful site, filled with images of Guam's people and attractions, presents detailed information on Guam's history, culture, language and flora and fauna, as well as general facts and figures about the Micronesian destination. It also includes a direct link to the official site of the Commemoration of the 60th Anniversary of the Liberation of Guam. Here, visitors can learn about the array of activities planned for the July 2004 celebration as well as Guam's WWII history.

The Web site offers a comprehensive list of island accommodations with direct links to many of the hotels' Internet sites; a guide to Guam's tour operators, activities, attractions and island events; dining and nightlife listings, including dinner cruises and dinner shows; and a detailed shopping directory. The Web site also includes contact information for the international air carriers that serve Guam, and important facts about entry and exit formalities along with other travel tips.
