Since I would like to visit Palaui for the second time around, here's what I am going to do better next time.

** I will ride a plane. If not, take a Florida bus.

That's right! Palaui island is a place that you can feel like a paradise. The blue clear water and fresh air that we breathe in made the place perfect. In fact, I have visited the place last summer and we had fun with my friends.. HmmMm gotta love to get back in the island!!
