Distances

President Obama's mid-night ride through Guam left Guambat feeling somewhat distant. Indeed, he is. Washington DC is about 7930 miles away from Guam as the crow flies, according to the Free Map Tools websites' "How Far is it Between" utility (which you can play with here).




Guambat is closer to almost every capital city and major city of every country in Asia, Oceania, Southeast Asia, Europe and much of the Middle East and Subcontinental Asia.
