I haven’t been to Guam, but I heard a lot of beautiful feedback from college pals who live there and from friends who have visited the island.
One reason is that albeit being just 3.5 hours away from the Philippines, Guam is a U.S. Territory and one needs a U.S. Visa to visit. If you got that visa then there’s no stopping you to go as there are now three airlines offering affordable flights there: Philippine Airlines, United Airlines, and now Cebu Pacific.
At the moment, huge discounts are being offered at the Travel Madness Show happening in Manila. If that won’t convince you to go, maybe some of the two special events happening in Guam this 2016 will give you that extra push you need.
Ko’Ko Road Race #OnlyOnGuam
Is a well participated fun run in Guam, it happens annually and this 2016 it will commence on October 29, 2016. The Ko’Ko Road Race is made even bigger and better as participation of the entire family is now included in the program. Children ages 4 to 12 can join the Guam Ko’ko Kids Fun Run with .6K, 1.6K, and 3.3K tracks. Slated to be held at Gov. Joseph Flores Memorial Park at Tumon, kids can experience a safe and exciting race of their own. Marathon enthusiasts will have their own race the following day at the Guam Ko’ko Half Marathon and Ekiden Relay. An event with thousands of participants from all over the world, it will span a total of 21.09 kilometers. Four-person teams can choose to take part of the Ekiden Relay, where each member only runs 5K portions of the full race. A special 10k Run/Walk course is available for those who want to take part in the event in a relaxed pace.
