For a snapshot of the country's different cultural practices, head up to the handicraft markets in Port Vila." - http://www.traveller.com.au/vanuatu-travel-guide-and-things-to-do-20-reasons-to-visit-gh6ccg

If you want to lend a hand to some of the friendliest, most hospitable people you could hope to meet, the best way to do that is simply by spending your tourist dollars in Vanuatu. Most hotels (particularly the ones mentioned here in Port Vila, and on Espiritu Santo, which was untouched) and tourist activities have now reopened, meaning there's never been a better time to visit this Pacific nation and support it simply by having a good time." - (2015) http://www.traveller.com.au/vanuatu-travel-guide-and-things-to-do-20-reasons-to-visit-gh6ccg
