Syuru & Agats
Day 3 > 15th May 2019
We left the Coral Adventurer and as the two Xplorers approached the village of Syuru, we were surrounded by 35 large canoes full of standing warriors dressed in feathers and body paint, whooping and brandishing their weapons at us. It was an amazing welcome. The Xplorers then landed onto a small jetty for a walk along a rickety wooden boardwalk. We congregated around a central area to watch a traditional dance put on by the men and women. We were all very impressed by this spectacular show. After the sing sing, we went into a large longhouse where many artefacts and handicrafts were on display. Quite a few guests bought some very nice carvings. After lunch, the Xplorers took us along the river to Agats for a tour of the town, passing the interesting museum and the many small stalls and stores perched on top of the many boardwalks. Guests had an amazing experience exploring this town built on stilts.
