ChubbyWimbus placed a link on the Regions Map Expedition for the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regions_of_Guinea-Bissau Wikipedia article] that the provinces can be divided into three regions. I'm not so sure. The Bijagós Archipelago are the only destination in G-B I've heard about and they seem to be a popular tourist draw...so I think they should be their own region (the archipelago corresponds with the Bolama region). Geographically speaking, the interior is forest-savanna whereas the coast is mostly mangrove swamps and forests. I'm not sure what differences there are between coastal areas to the north and south of the Rio Geba. If we can't find any, then the regions should be (using [http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/ca/Guinea_Bissau_Map.jpg this] map):

ChubbyWimbus placed a link on the Regions Map Expedition for the Wikipedia article that the provinces can be divided into three regions. I'm not so sure. The Bijagós Archipelago are the only destination in G-B I've heard about and they seem to be a popular tourist draw...so I think they should be their own region (the archipelago corresponds with the Bolama region). Geographically speaking, the interior is forest-savanna whereas the coast is mostly mangrove swamps and forests. I'm not sure what differences there are between coastal areas to the north and south of the Rio Geba. If we can't find any, then the regions should be (using this map):
