Guam's best: Some of the island's top activities by popular demand
With so much to do on Guam, trying to pinpoint “the best” activities could be like trying to find a needle in a haystack. Nonetheless, the folks at The Guam Guide thought they’d ask around. Here are some of the events their readers singled out.
Of course, like beauty, “the best” is in the eyes of the beholder. So if you disagree, but haven’t tried any of these fun-filled activities, you’ll have to give them a go before comparing and weighing in with an opinion. After all, this is really what this contest is about anyway.

Best Cultural Activity
Readers’ Choice: Chamorro Village Wednesday Night
Chamorro Village is a must-do on Guam. The outdoor mall is open every day but the main event happens every Wednesday night from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. when tourists and locals gather for the outdoor market and a multitude of cultural events.
The markets are a great way to find inexpensive souvenirs and gifts for everyone on your list. The aroma of fresh local foods can be tempting, so be sure to bring your appetite. Vendors offer great food for even better prices, from $1 for a chicken or pork BBQ stick, $2 for banana lumpia (banana eggrolls drizzled in honey).
And if you’re still hungry, plates of food vary from $5-9. If you want dinner and a show, head to the north side of the complex where there are cultural dances reminiscent of Hawaiian Lulus.
Bring cash, as with most markets, stalls only except cash, however, most of the permanent stores do accept credit cards.
