TUMON, Guam -- Guam said it is now welcoming visitors following
recovery efforts from last month's Typhoon Paka.
According to the Guam Visitors Bureau, Guam Airport is in full
operation, airlines have returned to normal schedules, and almost
all hotels are fully operational.
Electrical power and water service have been restored to Tumon
Bay, the central tourist area, all roads are open, and 95% of
tourist attractions are accessible, it said.
After the Dec. 16 storm hit the western Pacific U.S. territory,
the visitors bureau recommended that travelers with flexible
itineraries postpone visits. "Now that visitor services have
returned to normal, Guam is ready to host visitors with traditional
Chamorro hospitality," said James Nelson, GVB general manager.
