>>Nelles Verlag has been one of the principal producers of international travel maps since 1982. The accuracy of their information and their frequent updates have made Nelles maps the first choice for travelers.<<
So they write about the Nelles maps in the United States.
Personal experiences tought me that in the phase of planning an extended trip like one into an area so waste like the Pacific Ocean a traveller simply needs a map like this one.
It covers on its both sides the most important Island Groups You may wish to visit.
As always - opening the map - You find an extended legend in English, Deutsch e Francais.Then You can chose: Opening the map with Your left, You find 'down South the oversight map of the South Pacific 1:13,000.000 in his whole extension from Australia in the West to the Easter Island in the East.
And then there are the single Maps of the most important islands and groups like
the Solomon Islands, New Caledonia, Vanuatu, Fiji Islands, Tonga, Samoa, Niue, Cook Islands, Society Islands, Marquesas Islands, Easter Island, Guadalcanal, Bora Bora etc..which You find also openning the map with Your right hand.
Also included are city maps for Apia, Papeete and Suva.
Then, if You think You need more detailed maps of single island groups You want to explore further - then decide to buy them at home or take the Gratis Maps the single Tourist Boards hand out to every traveller. And those are always combined with more informations a map alone can never give You.
Or maybe it is enough to buy one of the fantastic guides that cover all Your needs, like the Nelles Guide Südsee (Reiseführer) or the South Pacific (Lonely Planet South Pacific).
Both are perfect!
So, Bon Voyage, Gute Reise, Have a nice Trip!
