Melekeok is a state in the island country of Palau. The locality of Ngerulmud has served as Palau's capital city since 2006, despite Melekeok State's small population of about 250 people. It is the smallest national capital in the world by population, and is smaller than the capital of the state in which it is located (Melekeok Village).
Follow the paved or "compact" road (as the locals call it) north from Koror Airport. There are two turn-offs (marked clearly by road signs) that will lead you to Melekeok. The south turn-off (which you will see first as you approach from Koror) is paved for approximately 50 meters before turning abruptly into a dirt road that approaches the capitol building from the south. The north turn-off (second as you approach from Koror) is paved the whole way, and approaches the capitol building from the west.
Driving is the best option for getting around this sparsely populated area. The roads here tend to be in very good condition and the traffic very light.
Melekeok is home to Palau's capitol complex, Ngerulmud, which is a 30-45 minute drive from downtown Koror. The picturesque capitol grounds include the judicial, legislative and executive buildings for the national government. The capitol complex remains controversial to many locals, given its expansive size and cost relative to the country's tiny population.
