What to do in the Solomon Islands: the country where "Selfie sticks" are banned?

Have you ever imagined visiting a place where using a "selfie stick" is prohibited? Yes that's right! Today we will take you on a tour of the exotic and curious Solomon Islands

This little paradise in the South Pacific has a history as rich as its biodiversity. Famous for the important battles of the Second World War, the Solomon Islands have countless archaeological sites and historical relics waiting for you.

Do you want to know the five best places to visit? Let's start with Honiara, the capital, where you can explore the Central Market and the War Memorial. Don't miss Marovo Lagoon National Park, one of the largest barrier reefs in the world. Then, explore the caves of Skull Island, filled with ancient human skulls. Also visit the Island of Guadalcanal, full of stories from the Second World War. And last but not least, take a tour of the local villages to experience the authentic culture of the Solomon Islands.

Now, let's get to the point: the local currency is the Solomon Islands dollar, the official language is English and the good news is that we, Brazilians, do not need a visa to enter the country.

Regarding the socioeconomic and political situation, the Solomon Islands is a constitutional monarchy and faces significant challenges in terms of development. The economy is based on agriculture, fishing and mining, but political instability and limited infrastructure have hampered growth.


How much does it cost to travel to this incredible place? Well, a trip to the Solomon Islands isn't exactly cheap, but it's definitely worth it. With airfare and accommodation, be prepared to spend around R$12,000 to R$20,000.


And now, what they never told you about the Solomon Islands is why "selfie sticks" are prohibited. It is believed that pointing something directly at people is considered rude in local culture, so the use of the "selfie stick" is discouraged.
