Niue - A country - Population is 1000

I had a chance to attend APTLD (Asia Pacific Top Level Domain) meeting which was held at Mount Lavinia hotel on 27 - 28 June, 2010. Many people from Asia pacific region who maintain Domain registries also came for that meeting.
I met a person called Stafford Guest. His native country is Nieu!

Nieu! first time I hear that name. This is an island located near New Zealand. Though it got the Independence in 1974, still getting the symbotic support from New Zealand.

The interesting things to note are :
- Population of the country is 1000!
- The total intetnet bandwidth the country has is 4mbps :-) I have more than that in my PC
- Only one hotel is there
- Only flights can reach there and also those operates once in a week. Therefore if you would like to attend a meeting some there else you may need to leave atlease 8 days before.....
- No Cinema...
- No big shopping malls....

Cant Believe isnt it!

I was really supprised when he tells all these!

But you know it looks soooooo beautiful. Nice beaches (though it rough)... Full of cocunut treess (I saw some picture in Google images)

Also found that Nieu means "Behold! Coconut"
