    The kids...you'll fall in love with them...

    by CandS Written May 6, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The kids in Vanuatu are so cute! They are fairly shy though when they're younger. It would be a good idea to take something to give to the kids - we didn't think of it before leaving but we should have taken some lollipops, stickers, lollies or something for them.

    Tipping
    No tipping or bargaining please, it goes against local tradition.

    Please, just don't do it as it creates an obligation for the person to return to you. Which is virtually impossible if you're a leaving tourist . Therefore it would leave someone behind indepted to you which is not fair to do.

  • Vanuatu is in the Malaria zone...

    Vanuatu is in the Malaria zone so take care to inform yourself of the risks before you leave.
    Port Vila is a low risk area but make sure to take insect repellent.It only takes one bite from an infected mosquito to give you Malaria.

    Vanuatu have severe storms now...

    Vanuatu have severe storms now and then. Earthquakes of some danger also occur. There are also
    tsunamis now and then. As late as 1999 a tsunami killed people. Travelling outside the months of
    December to March, you should avoid all these 'dangers.'

    Tabu

    When you see the word Tabu be careful...you could be doing something illegal or very disrespectful. Most places will have the warning in English and Bislama.
