Overview

The second most populous state in Palau is Airai, which is located on the south coast of the Babeldaob Island. It is where the country’s main airport, the Roman Tmetuchi International Airport, is situated, and it’s connected to Koror Island by the Koror-Babeldaob Bridge.

The Airai Bai was originally built in the year 1890, however in the 1970s a major restoration of the meeting house was undertaken. The building is located in the center of the village, on a platform made from stone that had held previous bais in the years before. The front and interior beams of the building are decorated with traditional Palauan legends, and the site and building have been a long standing centerpiece of the community.

While on an Airai Cultural Tour you may be lucky enough to visit the canoe sheds, called Diangel, which were used as the main method of transport in previous years. Back when the village was still young, the houses were spread around the Bai, which is normally located close by to the ocean, hence the need for canoes.
