Cities Vanuatu: Vila (Port Vila)

This charming town, carrying an imprint of several crops, is traditionally considered the most colorful city of the country, which accompanies and business quarters are quite European, and cozy green villages. However, the capital is the only city on the islands, so to compare it here is simply nothing with.
