Most of the tourist districts that I visited, as an observation, boils down with common factors that it has and able to keep the tourist to stay. I can say that all the reasons listed below are pointing to what we call travel comfort zone.
Fundamentals of Traveler’s Needs
Below are the things that we can accept as needs of every traveler every time people are on vacation or holiday. Well, see for yourself if the list are true if you had been in Guam.
Tumon is where most of the hotels and accommodations are located.
2. Food, Clothing and Shopping Needs
Tumon is like metropolis where different shopping centers, restaurants and cafe can be found. Most of them are located along Pale San Vitores Road.
In all villages in the island, Tumon district has at least a public transportation with arrange route to other shopping centers and nearby tourist spots and people don’t need to rent a car and drive. The island does not have systematic and reliable public transportation therefore having a nearby, cheap and available transportation that works is very important.
4. Tourist Spots
The district surrounds Tumon Bay, therefore it has easy access to both public and private beaches within the stretch of the bay. And aside from beaches, the district features other tourist spots and entertainments establishments that visitors can enjoy and spend their time.
5. Language Support
Visitors with different language like Japanese are almost supported in Tumon if not all over Guam. Most of the hotels employ people with such language skill. Japanese is what I think the most foreign visitors of the island. And even travel tour companies accommodates to support this language.
