Marshall Islands Visitor: Make sure to see the beauty of the island at bus stops


This project is a bus stop painting project falling under the initiative inspired by the One Island One Product.

As part of preserving and sustaining our culture, the goal of this project is that these legends will reach out to younger generation to revive their knowledge of who we are, how we became and why we are unique as well as beautifying our capital city and making it look more attractive for visitors.

eTN Chatroom: Discuss with readers from around the world:

Each Bus Stop will hold in display a famous legend from each atoll.

Following the completion of the project, a location map will be printed which labels each bus stop with the name of the island that displays its unique legend, this map will add onto our islands attraction list.
