Koror, Palau Cruise Port
Koror is one of the most popular cities in Palau, which is located east of the Philippines. The island’s early history is shrouded in mystery, but you can start lifting the veil for yourself on a cruise to this tropical wonder. As your venture around the island, you’ll discover Micronesian artifacts dating back thousands of years. Many of Palau’s greatest treasures, however, are natural. For instance, there’s Jellyfish Lake which is home to millions of (stinger-less) golden jellyfish that have evolved with their unique habitat, which is only connected to the ocean by tunnels in the underwater limestone. There are several other reefs, caves and lagoons around the islands that are perfect for diving. Featured below are a few of the best ways to spend your time when cruising to Koror, Palau:
