FSM - Pohnpei - Around Island Attractions
If there is a road going around the whole island, how could you resist driving on it to discover the attractions the island offers? We toured the island clockwise and visited the many small attractions available. Some sites like Nan Madol and long hikes are best done on different days otherwise you won't have time to finish the circumnavigation in one day!
