Who discovered Tonga?
Tonga was discovered by two unnamed Dutch explorers in 1616. However, Dutch trader/explorer Abel Tasman is often given the credit, as he was the first known European to land there, doing so in 1643.

Anything you want. But in Tonga they have a specific way of showing respect. What puts Tongans apart is that RESPECT for tongans is a big thing. For tongans there are differe…nt catergories of respect. There are rules in Tonga that you must obey & by sticking to them, you would be fine. And when you stick to them you shall do whatever you want in Tonga. BUT, if you give one wrong move & DISRESPECT someone, thats when everybody will come running after you with a weapon. So you doing whatever you want depends on what you do & how you act.
James Cook did not "discover" Tonga, but he first visited the islands in 1773, whilst on his second voyage. Tonga was discovered by two unnamed Dutch explorers in 1616. Howe…ver, Dutch trader/explorer Abel Tasman is often given the credit, as he was the first known European to land there, doing so in 1643.

Yes! Actually, Tonga has one of the highest Mormon populations in the world (by percent, not number, since Tonga is quite small). In January 2010, there were 55,173 baptized …members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) in Tonga. The total population of Tonga was about 103,000... So 54% of Tongans are Mormon !
Tonga is a Constitutional Monarchy so it has the Monarch (King George Tupou IV) at the head of its government.
