Things to do: historic sites, sightseeing, classes
Yap or Wa′ab is an island located in the Caroline Islands of the western Pacific Ocean, and a part of the Federated States of Micronesia. It is considered to be made up of four separate islands: Yap Island proper (MarbaQ), Tamil/Gagil, Maap, and Rumung. The three are contiguous though separated by water and are surrounded by a common coral reef. They are formed from an uplift of the Philippine Sea Plate, and are referred to as "high" islands as opposed to atolls. The land is mostly rolling hills densely vegetated. Mangrove swamps line much of the shore. Yap's indigenous cultures and traditions are strong compared to other states in Micronesia.Colonia is the capital of the State of Yap which includes Yap proper and the fourteen outer islands (mostly atolls) reaching to the east and south for some 800 km (500 mi), namely Eauripik, Elato, Fais, Faraulep, Gaferut, Ifalik, Lamotrek, Ngulu, Olimarao, Piagailoe (West Fayu), Pikelot, Sorol, Ulithi, and Woleai atolls, as well as the island of Satawal (see map). Historically a tributary system existed between the outer islands and Yap proper. This probably related to the need for goods from the high islands, including food, as well as wood for construction of seagoing vessels.2000 population was 11,241 in both Colonia and ten other municipalities. The state has a total land area of 102km2.
