What to Expect from Your Life in Melanesia

Few parts of the world enable expats to truly feel like they've left behind the hustle and bustle of their old lives like Melanesia. This subregion of Oceania, nestled on the western edge of the Pacific Ocean, is as diverse as it is picturesque. The four nations of Vanuatu, Fiji, Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands offer expats the chance to explore four distinct cultures that each shares a common ancestry dating back 30,000 years. InterNations has an active community of expats with whom you can explore this remarkable region. Sample some Kava in Fiji, watch an active volcano spit lava in Vanuatu or relax on a deserted white sandy beach in the Solomons; our members will share inside tips about where is best to stay and visit in Melanesia.
