Can anyone please offer some advice on the best/quickest/cheapest way to get tp Palau from the uk.
I dont think there is a cheap or a straight forward way to get to Palau from the UK but what i would do is to get to Manila( for cheap flights check airasia) first then get a flight to Palau by Delta airlines which isnt so cheap for a short flight. Some travellers prefer to get to the pasific islands via Honolulu. and aslo check this website www.pacificflier.com .reviews are not great for pacific flier and you cant book tickets online you need to contact them.
Yes, it's not exactly cheap or easy to get to Palu from UK, but it is definitely worth the effort.
Etihad do a very good service via Abu Dhabi to Manila, (you will have to change somewhere as I don't think there are any direct flights from uk)
Continental also fly from Manila to Koror, Palau, but again not exactly cheap.
I think via Manila is probably the best route, it's a very long way round via Hawaii, but you may well have to overnight there, one way, if not both. If you are making this trip you need to go for 2 weeks minimum.
You could also spend a week in Yap maybe as well as some time in Palau, the Continental stops at both.
Thank you Wanderer and Pelen. Your guidance is very much appreciated. Just returned this am from manila with Etihad, very impressed.
Avoid using pacific flier. They are broke.
