Palau is an island country part of Micronesia in Oceania. It contains over 500 islands in the Pacific Ocean. But most are uninhabited tropical islands.

It’s situated in the Philippine Sea with Guam to the northeast, Papua New Guinea to the southeast, Malaysia and Indonesia to the southwest, and the Philippines to the west.

Its most populous islands are Angaur, Babeldaob, Koror, and Peleliu. But about two-thirds of the population in Palau lives in Koror. The capital of Palau is Ngerulmud, which replaced its largest city, Koror.
