The California Bucket List: Your daily guide to the best adventures and experiences in the Golden State


Vanuatu was the site of the ninth season of the TV reality show "Survivor" in 2004. In 2008, UNESCO recognized the 83-island chain in the southwest Pacific by inscribing locations associated with central Vanuatu's last paramount chief, Roi Mata, in its list of World Heritage sites. The sites include the chief's residence and burial site. Vanuatu is warm most of the year, but travelers would be wise to avoid its rainy season, usually from November to April.
