The Rocket Guide to Vanuatu is an interactive, high speed travel planner for Windows or Macintosh computers designed for travel professionals and people who wish to plan their adventures in Vanuatu from their desks.
The guide has been extremely popular with travel agents and travel writers. In 2005 and 2007 the Australian Federation of Travel Agents (AFTA) put the Rocket Guide to Vanuatu on the cover of their professional travel magazine Traveller and sent copies to every travel agency and all their members throughout Australia and New Zealand. This is what the AFTA Traveller presentation looked like.
Rocket Guides are like Google Earth on steroids. You can zoom from space right down to the ground and then take a virtual tour of every hotel and resort in Vanuatu- or even go underwater to see the best dive spots.
The Rocket Guide's full screen photographs will quickly and easily give you full information about visiting Vanuatu.

What you see is what you will find when you get there.
Here is a tiny taste of what's on the guide - it shows how to visit Bokissa Private Island Resort in Santo. There is information like this for just about every aspect of tourism in Vanuatu; flights, car rentals, hotels, resorts, bungalows, tours, diving, getting married, plus critical health and cultural information to make sure you have the best possible time in Vanuatu.
The guide opens with a space image of all of Vanuatu and a menu that offers links to general information about Vanuatu. Point to any island and a brief summary pops up instantly with information about that island. Of course these screen images are only a fraction of the full screen images you'll see on your own computer screen.
On the guide you'll click on any island to zoom down until the screen is filled with a high resolution space image of the island. For now, please click on tab 2..
At any level of zoom, from the entire SW Pacific right down to ground level you can click on a link along the top of the screen to overlay information on:

You will be astonished by how quickly full screen images and even 360 degree panoramas appear. If you load the whole guide onto your hard drive it is extremely fast. Click on a room to see a 360 degree panororama of the outside and inside of the accommodation along with a summary of what is included.

The beauty of the Rocket Guide is how simple it is to find just the information you want to find. You don't have to go from one thing to the next - like in a book. You just pick the button for what you want to know. For example if you just want the phone number or email address you would click on "contact details" and find active links to their email and website, the telephone and fax numbers, and mailing address.
You can find just about anything you want to know is just one or two mouse button clicks from anywhere on the guide. For example, if you were on the "getting there" page showing how to get to Bokissa Private Island Resort and you wanted to rocket down to Efate to look at hotels there you just point to "Go To" and a satellite image of all Vanuatu appears. All you need todo is click on the island of Efate (or on the text link Port Vila) you'll be looking at a list of every hotel with one click.
Every island in Vanuatu is on the guide, from the tiny isles in the Northern Torres Islands to Futuna and Aneityum in the far south, along with domestic flight routes on how to get there and where to stay when you go.
The Rocket Guide to Vanuatu is the perfect way to explore the islands of Vanuatu and decide where to go, where to stay, how to make the most of your visit, what to avoid, and what to do.
And it's fun and inexpensive.
