Backpacking in Kiribati: Touring Te Umanibong, National Cultural Museum in Bikenibeu

Backpacking in Kiribati: Touring Te Umanibong, National Cultural Museum in Bikenibeu

  I could be forgiven for expecting the settlement of Bikenibeu to be spelt “Bikini Bow” and be a beach full of Kiribati’s hottest babes all relaxing in the sunshine in their swimming costumes. While exotic beaches in Tarawa Atoll (Kiribati’s main part, which houses the capital, the national museum and the main international airport) do Read more about Backpacking in Kiribati: Touring Te Umanibong, National Cultural Museum in Bikenibeu[…]

Backpacking in Kiribati: Top 13 Sights in Betio

Kiribati (formerly the Gilbert Islands) can be confusing. It certainly confused me, the fact that I would officially land here three times (same as Nauru) on the one trip, yet only visit it once, i.e. leave the airport and see some of the country.
