here's an insider info : you can ride for FREE from any surrounding hotel to DFS(Duty Free Shop mentioned in the SHOPPING section) from any major hotels .
DFS is located smack in the middle of Tumon Tourist Area .
if you don't believe me here's the Official Statement :
taxi fare would drain U unless U desperately need basic medication from K-Mart after midnight . 3 companies operate buses to-and-from major hotels & shopping centers . aprox. half-hour intervals . 1 way is $2 each . all-day pass go for $5 but U gotta stick to buses from the SAME company . to lure tourists as longer as possible, 3 day rent-a-cars R cheaper than daily .
'tis NOT San Francisco NOR even London, but U just gotta try out riding atop the open double-decker bus ! in the daytime or among nightlights, from end to end of the Tumon area .
due to the fact that planes fly in thru connection from larger cities on the surrounding continents, you'll probably land & depart during the wee hours after midnight . but as this is a resort island neither the tourists nor the locals working at the airport & hotel seem to mind . look at it this way : U can save the precious daytime for the Beach & Shopping 8)
and the good news is, as with Sin City Las Vegas, the airport is a mere 10 minutes from the beach with major hotels !
and the better news is the venerable K-Mart is on the way to your right .
Taxi service in Guam.
I guess if you use the trunk space in a Taxi, they charge 1$ per piece.
Taking a taxi to Duty Free Shop is free. No free taxi service back to your hotel. Take the duty free bus.
Taxis can run kind of pricey in Guam. Although it is faster than the bus in most cases, I recommend taking the bus around.
The island is very small but some people rent cars anyway. If you do drive be prepared to sit in traffic for long periods of time and the first three people at a stop light tend to ignore it. Sit for a min before proceeding to ensure that all the traffic has stopped in the other lanes.
The best way to get around Guam is to rent a car. Prices are all over the board. You can get a Guam Bomb which is a 4 year old car for about 25.00 a day..a good car starts about 39.00 a day and luxury cars go for about 79.00. There are lots of trolley like streetcars, busses, etc that run up and down the tumon strip and visit the various malls and hotels. The public transportation ends at 2100 and none of the busses go outside of the tourist area of Tumon and the shopping areas. There are a couple of double decker, open top trolleys that are fun to ride for a general orientation.
There are many ways of getting around Guam. Some people like to walk or ride their bikes...while others take buses, cabs or just rent a car. Which every way you choose you are sure to see plenty and have a wonderful time.
Continental is one of the major carriers, if not the major carrier, to the island. From the mainland, you can get there via Hawaii or via Tokyo. The Continental flights are roomy! And you'll probably have your own TV, too.
Rental cars are best...although most streets are paved and yes, even named on the maps, signage is at a minimum.
The best way to travel around Guam is by bus....
And if u catch a cab, just tell the driver to the Duty Free Shopping Center and you don't need to pay.
And some shopping centers provide shopping BUS such as Micronetia Shopping center, DFS...Even some restaurants got van to pick you up, like Tony Roma's
There are 2 main bus company. Ding-Ding and trolley.
Only costs u USD 8...for a week...very cheap.
Plane and Continental is the biggest airline in Guam, you can stop in Hawaii and then Guam or Narita, Japan and then Guam, or from London to Hong Kong and then Guam!!
You have to rent a car it's really easy to get around and that way you can go to places on your own and see things that maybe you won't see with a tour company!
When you arrived Guam, you can see several different kinds of buses on the street, so it's convenient to look around Guam! You have to charge 2 usd per time to take some buses, one of them is Gray line! And then, there are some buses between hotels and DFS, it's free!!! You can take a taxi from your hotel to DFS, then just go back to your hotel by their buses!!!
Taxi fare in Guam is very expensive, so I advice everyone to take a bus to go around some spots!
Pretty much the only way to travel to Guam is by plane, some tourists do arrive by boats but that is pretty rare and definately expensive. The Guam International Airport has recently been remodeled and is a fully modern and beautiful facility. There are huge duty free shopping areas, and a decently sized fast food court, be aware though that sometimes exited terminal may take some time if several flights come it at once.
Best way to get around Guam is in a car. Everybody has a car! Heck everybody has several cars! Cars on Guam are frequently a sign of your success. I've known some locals who live in tin houses but own a BMW. There aren't really any accomidations made for bikes or runners, if you do choose to use one of these take a stick because you can often get attacked by boonie dogs. There are buses that can take you to nearly every tourist attraction and taxis are available but charge quite a bit, it's cheaper to rent a car for the day and do your own exploring.
many shuttle buses are going around main hotels,downtown,famous shopping centers.So you don't have to worry.
It also take you to the Two Lovers' Point... great observatory!
This is how I go to work everyday. Just kidding. But there are a lot of paddling clubs on Guam, and the teams often go off-island for competitions.
