In 1768, Louis An­tonie de Bougainville, A French Ad­mi­ral & ex­plorer re­turned in re­dis­cov­er­ing the is­lands and 6 years later by Cap­tain James Cook in 1774 who re­named the Is­lands, the New He­brides.

It’s with­out a doubt Van­u­atu was voted as one the hap­pi­est place to visit by Lonely Planet. Their na­tive lan­guage is Bis­lama, a mix pre­dom­i­nately of the English vo­cab­u­lary and part French as Van­u­atu prior to gain­ing in­de­pen­dence was gov­erned by the Eng­land & France from 1906 for 74 years prior to Van­u­atu gain­ing in­de­pen­dence on 30th July 1980.
