Not much is happening at Babeldaob, but it is worth a visit if you happen to visit Palau. Babeldaob is a poor island with few people and with virtually no infrastructure, except for the road of surprising high standard, that takes you around the island. The island houses the formal capital, which consists of little beyond the US Capitol Hill replica, that rises from the bush in an unreal manner, as a symbol of misguided funds and ambitions.

The view from the road is often scenic, particularly at the northern end. There the view from the now ruined "Japanese Lighthouse" is amazing. However, the place itself is, and looks like, a blasted building site; watch your steps. Still there is an entry fee of USD 5 pp. You can also visit a Bird Sanctuary, which might give you good sightings if you visit early in the morning. There is also the Palau Stone Monoliths which are intriguing.

To the South you find the airport and this is where the majority of the Babeldaob islanders live. Most of the population in Palau lives in the Koror State and island to the South.

This is a long drive which gives you a feel of Palau outside of Koror. The stone monoliths are the most interesting sight. The Bai (traditional men's house) was also interesting. Rain made the waterfall a very slippery walk. We passed the National Capital buildings. Not a great day, but okay.

One big road goes round it. If you're considering going for a look then you're in Koror & wondering what the rest of the nation of Palau looks like. Well it's a big village spread over a large amount of land, hardly anyone in it. The highlight in absurdity comes in the form of the Capitol buildings. In a nation containing the population of a small town, there are 16 states & a Capitol complex with nothing around it. Be aware if you turn off the main road, most roads turn into loose gravel & your car may not make the ruts. One highlight of our drive out was to get through many miles of track to get to a dock (that's a small pier & some car parking to you & me) only to be told it was State property & if we wanted to stay that a fee was payable. Don't bother unless you're really bored.

We traveled with TourExtreme.com owner Hadley Renguul. He stopped at many unusual stops that only a local would know. The highlights for me were the National Capitol Buildings and the Japanese Lighthouse at the north end.
