Flying Tour of Uliga, Majuro

Flying Tour of Uliga, Majuro

Enjoying dinner at Aliang Restaurant near Uliga Dock one evening, I spotted a young man watching an aerial video of the nearby Uliga area on his laptop.

Restrooms Review

Restrooms Review

Laundries

Laundries

There are numerous laundries scattered around town. Most will do the washing for you, but it’s best to work out in advance the payment.
