The office/department handling environment matters was located in Kolonia (near the baseball park and Wall Mart and the Spanish Wall) It is quite nice and safe to walk around Kolonia. Wall Mart is a good store to get supplies. The post office, phone company and police department seems to be located in Kolonia.

This is the capital city where everything takes place. I mean most of the businesses are here although restaurants are scattered around. One can walk all over the place if it is not too hot or not raining. It is, however, one of the two most of the times on this island. It is however a very peaceful place.

Kolonia is port (air and sea) to Pohnpei. Town has one main street with post office, some shops and restaurants. Kolonia is the biggest town in FSM. In town is heavy traffic and rush.

Kolonia is the capital of Micronesia. If you are island hopping through Micronesia or need to visit the US Embassy, you will stop here.
