Often the climate and weather of a certain region comes into play and for some people, the nations of the South Pacific provide a temperate climate that appeals to them while on holiday. Not only do these nations offer temperate climates but they also offer visitors a host of activities in which to participate. For instance, casino gambling is popular in this region with many countries having their own casinos.

Two casinos have been opened in Vanuatu since it gained its independence from France and Britain who co-managed the island nation. Both casinos are found within the same city and are part of hotels. One of these is the Club 21 Limited – Its game offerings are a bit more limited than the second casino here which is the Palms Casino. Expect to find only two kinds of table games at Club 21 which are baccarat and blackjack.
