How to get there
Truk Lagoon is most easily reached through Manila, in the Philippines. There are many airlines operating flights to Manila from the UK and you would need to take a night’s accommodation there prior to continuing your journey to Truk the next day. From Manila, there are flights to Truk Lagoon operating two times per week, travelling on United Airlines via Guam. Flight time from Manila to Truk is just 8hrs, although the flight times can be at very unsociable hours.
