Oceania is composed of Australia, Federated States of Micronesia, Fiji, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Nauru, New Zealand, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu, Vanuatu, Cook Islands, Niue, American Samoa, Ashmore and Cartier Islands, Baker Island, Coral Sea Islands, Easter Island, Galapagos Islands, French Polynesia, Guam, Hawaii, Howland Island, Jarvis Island, New Caledonia, Norfolk Island, Northern Mariana Island, Wallis and Futuna. We are citing at least 45 important international airports in South Asia for you so you can have more idea on how these airports look like and what are the tourist spots you can visit near these airports once the COVID lockdown is lifted. Unfortunately, wikipedia only gives you the list of airports. It does not show you recent pictures about the airport nor advice places you can visit after landing in that airport. We merged sources we got from wikipedia, instagram and tripadvisor making this blog unique. This will be a digital tour and I hope you enjoy the content we worked on for two days. We cannot travel physically right now due to the COVID pandemic but we can definitely travel digitally!
