Tongatapu is the biggest island in the Tongan Kingdom. It’s a large, flat coral island raised on its southern side to 20 metre cliffs. Most of the interior is covered in a patchwork of plantations. The eastern side of the island is the most interesting, and has the ancient Langi Tombs, royal burial sites made of massive stones shaped like elongated pyramids, limestone caves and coves, and the best of the island's white beaches.

The Tongan Royal Palaces are also on Tongatapu.

A short distance off Tongatapu’s shores lie several small uninhabited coral islands which are great for snorkelling. Tongatapu also has lots of good walking trails and a few good breaks for surfers and several ocean pools which protect swimmers perfectly.

It's fantastic Tongafu remarkable beauty of the island, the world is amazed to see it, but it's not profitable for people who do not have much money, because the great distance would have to pay for to get there. Therefore, for me to know the information alone is a tremendous fortune. Congratulations to the rich world to enjoy paradise.

Surely this is the type of person I want to know everything, but my curiosity is very limited like most humans, all of it because it is limited by the ability to gain knowledge in question. The most basic ability is a very small financial, so that only libraries that much help. I want to know the world out there (America, Europe, Africa, Australia and so on) but there is no cost to get there. In old age before this there is nothing I regret even though many do not I get, but even these few (Islands in Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia and Saudi Arabia) I was grateful to Allah SWT. "Suppose CAN MORE THAN THAT?"
