Micronesia's most populous island
A backpacking holiday in Guam is not ideal. Prices on the island are not geared towards travelers on a budget, and there is a distinct lack of hostel accommodation. The cheapest hotels are often appalling in standard, and the island is not renowned for cheap beer and entertainment. That said, if you can find a decent spot to camp or work out a realistic budget, the island offers some beautiful and inspiring sights for any traveler, not to mention a wealth of diverse culture and cuisine. If you can make your budget and travel plans fit, then a backpacking holiday in Guam is not a bad idea, though it will require some forethought.
