Papua New Guinea

I was wondering if there is anyone out there who has visited PNG. I'd very much like to hear about your experience.

Thanks.

Pete

    Went there during August principally to dive. If you dive you shouldn't miss out because the reefs are about as good as it gets (lots of pelagics). We spent a night in Port Moresby and then went to Kavieng in New Ireland province. Port Moresby is a dangerous city but all you need to do is keep your wits about you. Don't go out alone at night. I'd recommend the Crowne Plaza in the City otherwise go to Loloata Resort (on Loloata island about 30-45 mins from the airport)

    Get out and around. New Ireland, for example, is a world away from PoM and the people are as friendly as any in Oceania. To go here you really need to be on a boat to visit the outer islands which are great. Kavieng has some questionable hotels (avoid the Kavieng hotel at all costs) but the best is the Malagan resort. Be sure to confirm you reservation here at least twice with the manager (they have a habit of losing them).

    We will return to PNG where we hope to visit Kimbe Bay in New Britain and go back to Kavieng.

    Finally, and just a thought, if you want the culture, remoteness and south sea feel without the danger of being eaten then think about Vanuatu.
