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.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in The Hague or Cairo, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.
