Malo e lelei.
Ahh Tonga. I was a member of the Entertainment Staff on the very first cruise ship that moored off the island of Tonga. Along with the top officers, the E/Staff was also invited to a Royal Feast prepared for us by the king's chefs. This was done in the gardens of the Royal Palace, and it was magnificent. Int'l Dateline Hotel, on the island has the distinction of being squarely on the Int'l Dateline. Back then it was said that it was Sunday in one end of the hotel, and Monday in the other. Bottom line, I have been to Tonga several times in the past and am fairly well versed in the Tongan tourism. My claims that, ".....I have dined with kings!......", I am really talking about the King of Tonga.........d:o)
I was born in Tonga and have lots of family in Tonga I can probably help you out with any information about Tonga.
Known as the,"Friendly Islands", since Captain Cook's time there. I spent 2 and 1/2 months there in 1999 and fell in with the locals, learned some Tongan, traveled a lot, learned many customs. Will give advice from many angles, this is a very safe and beautiful place with 170 islands, most uninhabited.
No Tonga questions; but all the answers on Tonga travel?
