A small island nation in the South Pacific Ocean, part of a series of islands collectively named Polynesia. You can certainly leave the tourist traps behind here. Tonga is so laid back and full of traditional culture. As you’ll see in the photos above I visited the Ha'amonga-A-Maui, which is a HUGE stone structure built many hundreds of years ago by the islands indigenous people as a gateway to the royal throne. A royalty that still exists today. In fact Tonga’s monarchy is the only one in the entire South Pacific.
...Oh and I also had to stop by the beach and check out the sea pigs! They are wild pigs that eat the majority of their food from the ocean...probably no that odd bearing in mind they live on an island!
