Off the beaten path: Vanuatu

Vanuatu, the archipelago of 83 islands, known as New Hebrides in the past, is a rural, but a very interesting country. The country itself is quite off the beaten path, and there are several things to do for the adventure seekers: learning about the weird cargo cult of John Frum, try lap-lap, the national dish; meet the only 3 saltwater crocodiles of the place, take pictures of many locals, who love being photographed; check out the exploding volcanoes at night, try out the most primitive way of bungee jumping and more.

The Vanuatu cargo cult of John Frum worships cargo as spiritual gifts and idolizes John Frum - an unknown American soldier, who promised to bring goodies for the tribes and never returned.
