Tongan National Centre

On the main island Tongatapu, you can gain an insight into the history of the Kingdom of Tonga by visiting the Tongan National Centre. It contains many historical artifacts and the cultural tours are very good value. You can witness traditional dancing, locals make tapa, weave baskets and carve. At the dinner show you will experience traditional dishes – many cooked in an underground oven – an umu – then afterwards be entertained by dancers and musicians. It is one of the highlights of the tours around the island of Tongatapu.
