ENHANCING HISTORICAL SITES IN YAP:

Yap Visitors Bureau is using its pandemic downtime to improve its historic and cultural sites. With travel to Yap pretty much at a standstill, YVB is utilizing an FSM Congress grant to enhance the cultural and historical sites on island as part of their effort to promote community-based tourism for the island. Pictured is Yap Visitors Bureau’s Product Development Manager, Susan Gooliyan and Nature’s Way owner/manager, Su Yasui, assessing the WWII historical plane in Tamor, Tomil.
 




Yap Enjoys Monthly Island Market Events:
 
The new Yap Island Market has seen an upsurge in participation with the latest market events. As Yap remains COVID free, and the borders still closed, the Yap Visitors Bureau continues to find ways to enjoy a “normal life”. Previously this kind of market activity occurred only occasionally during special events. The Island Market was launched late 2020 and it is gaining popularity. The event is held at the Yap Living History Museum every last Friday of each month. The recent pressures associated with COVID-19, including reduced imports and travel restrictions has increased the importance of this market that provides a source of food, cash, and other exchanges as well. Organized by the Yap Visitors Bureau the market will hopefully be a tourist attraction as visitors will also be able to enjoy the market and purchase art and handicrafts once the island opens up again. Pictured is the April 30th’2021 Island Market Event at the Yap Living History Museum.
 




YAP IMPROVES AIRPORT LOBBY:

The Yap International Airport has been improved with a lobby extension project funded by the Yap Visitors Bureau through a grant by the US Joint Economic Management Committee. The Visitors Bureau sought to improve the “Gateway Effect” for visitors at the Yap International Airport by utilizing the $475,000 grant to expand the existing lobby and provide shelter for the passenger drop off and pick up area by adding a driveway canopy. The extended structure was designed by the Yap public Works Construction Engineering Management Office and built by the Yap Cooperative Association Construction Company.
