10 Days in Papua New Guinea: What to DO!

I spent 10 days in Papua New Guinea in September. I was a bit nervous before I went as I didn't know many people who'd been before, or what to expect, but I had a great time. Such an interesting country and I learnt a lot about the many different cultures.

Here's what you can expect to see in 10 days in Papua New Guinea.

12 Things You'll Want To Experience | Bougainville, Papua New Guinea

#bougainville #png #papuanewguinea

I arrived in the Autonomous Region of Bougainville, Papua New Guinea in November 2016 for a one-year stint. I have just extended to stay another 6-months. These are just a few of the things that have made me want to stay for every extra day that I can...

12 THINGS YOU'LL WANT TO EXPERIENCE | BOUGAINVILLE, PAPUA NEW GUINEA

1) Long weekend on Pokpok Island near Arawa. Book by emailing them directly: urunabayretreat@gmail.com

2) Getting to mingle with locals. Always a pleasure no matter where in the world you are.

3) Trekking and exploring around Sisivi with Rotokas Ecotourism. Organised directly with Rotokas Ecotourism.

4) Day trips island hopping in a banana boat. This can arranged through locals, Bougainville Experience Tours or direct with banana boat drivers in some cases.

5) Experiencing a traditional sing sing. Talk with locals, volunteers and expats, regularly check online including Facebook groups and keep your eyes peeled for posters around Buka, Arawa or Buin for any advertisements about sing sing festivals. They are often not well promoted.

6) Hiking to the volcanic crater Lake Eruovi / Billy Mitchell near Wakanui. Organised directly with Rotokas Ecotourism.

7) Playing games on the beach. The pikininis love to play football, rugby and volleyball, as do I, so everyone is happy!

8) Swimming and snorkeling at Loloho Beach near Arawa. Luckily there was already a relationship established with the chief, which I happily continued, which allowed me to use the beach. I suggest talking to locals and who'll no doubt meet someone who knows someone with access to a beach.

9) Dancing to a bamboo band. I could watch these play for hours and have done so! Again, keep your eyes to the ground for potential performances and also be ready for those fantastic spontaneous ones too!

10) Exploring beyond Buka Town to see the many sides of Buka Island. I have chatted with people who've explored the island by bicycle, however I had the opportunity to do so by 4x4 in exchange for taking some photographs. A private hire or local with a vehicle is also a good bet.

11) Local friends offering to show you around their villages. I always jump at the opportunity and find it fascinating to see the off the beaten track villages, which you'd never see otherwise. If someone offers, say yes!

12) Watching the sunrise from Premier Hill overlooking Kieta near Arawa. It really is the perfect spot to start the day and easily accessible by bicycle from Arawa or vehicle.

Papua New Guinea Travel Goals

We traveled 6,353 miles to Rabaul, Papua New Guinea, and asked local tribespeople one question: If you could travel to anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?

This is what they said.

Worst Travel Destinations in the World

Get more Tips here!

Tourists are often wary of traveling to certain destinations that maintain a reputation of being “unsafe”. We’ve compiled a list of the 10 worst travel destinations around the world based on these factors.

1. Port au Prince, Haiti
Since the 2010 earthquake, Port au Prince has been falling even further into decline. This city lacks basic healthcare and education systems and is stricken with severe poverty. Locals are purposefully kept far from tourists, making the experience hardly authentic for travelers who visit there.

2. Damascus, Syria
There has been a temporary suspension of commercial flights and closure of roadways. Some threats are very high in Damascus and the surrounding suburbs. While its a historically and culturally rich city, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office advises that Damascus is one of the worst travel destinations in the world right now.

3. Mogadishu, Somalia
Recently named by the US State Department as the most dangerous place on Earth, Mogadishu is not expected to be a popular tourist destination anytime soon. Mogadishu is not only the headquarters for non good people in the Horn of Africa, but new non licit organizations are forming everyday.

4. Pyongyang, North Korea
The only American who has been warmly welcomed into North Korea recently was basketball superstar, Dennis Rodman. Unless you look like him, don’t expect to be able to wander freely around the country. Tourists can only visit Pyongyang under the supervision of accredited tour guides, and the tours themselves are strictly regulated and restricted by the government.

5. Ciudad Juarez, Mexico
Considered one of the capitals of the world for bad people, vacationing in Ciudad Juarez is not recommended. This Mexican city has had lots of issues with the law. The big lords looking to maintain a stronghold of their supplies to the American market often threat innocent people to maintain their border city.

6. Bogotá, Colombia
Bogotá is not the best city at all. Some outlaw groups and other organizations continue to hold civilians, including foreigners, for ransom or as political bargaining chips. If you must travel to Bogotá, do so with extreme caution.

7. Dhaka, Bangladesh
The city’s nearby river is beautiful, but also severely polluted. Dhaka’s political system is highly wrong and proper healthcare and infrastructure systems are lacking in this capital city. Bangladesh does have the potential to be a tourist-worthy country, but government officials must improve humanitarian concerns and cleanliness standards in Dhaka before we would recommend it.

8. Skegness, England
Brits frequent this disappointing town hoping to spend some time at the beach, but traveling to Skegness has become a joke. The town, which appears to be stuck in the past, offers very few attractions for tourists to enjoy and is overpriced. This is one of the worst travel destinations.

9. Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea
Papua New Guinea’s capital city is known for its frequent lawlessness. All the bad issues take place daily. Port Moresby is replete with waste and pollution and offers few attractions for tourists.

10. Moscow, Russia
Moscow experiences extreme weather conditions during most months, making travel extremely unpleasant. Political problem levels are high in Russia’s capital city. Even the police are known to not precisely help tourists. We recommend visiting neighboring St. Petersburg instead.

Which of these cities surprised you the most?

Papua New Guinea Travel

Papua New Guinea , officially the Independent State of Papua New Guinea, is an Oceanian country that occupies the eastern half of the island of New Guinea and its offshore islands in Melanesia, a region of the southwestern Pacific Ocean north of Australia. Its capital, located along its southeastern coast, is Port Moresby. The western half of New Guinea forms the Indonesian provinces of Papua and West Papua.

Papua New Guinea is one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world; 852 languages are listed for the country, of which 12 have no known living speakers.[10] Most of the population of over 7 million people live in customary communities, which are as diverse as the languages.[11] It is also one of the most rural, as only 18 percent of its people live in urban centres.[12] The country is one of the world's least explored, culturally and geographically; many undiscovered species of plants and animals are thought to exist in the interior, as well as groups of uncontacted people.[13]

Papua New Guinea is classified as a developing economy by the International Monetary Fund.[14] Strong growth in Papua New Guinea's mining and resource sector led to the country becoming the sixth fastest-growing economy in the world in 2011,[15] although growth was expected to slow once major resource projects came on line in 2015.[16] Mining remains a major economic factor, however, with talks of resuming mining operations in the previously closed-off Panguna mine ongoing with the local and national governments.[17] Nearly 40 percent of the population lives a self-sustainable natural lifestyle with no access to global capital.[18]

At the local level, the majority of the population still live in strong customary societies and – while social life is overlaid with traditional religious cosmologies and modern practices, including conventional primary education – customary subsistence-based agriculture remains fundamental.[11] These societies and clans are explicitly acknowledged within the nation's constitutional framework. The Papua New Guinea Constitution expresses the wish for traditional villages and communities to remain as viable units of Papua New Guinean society[19] and for active steps to be taken in their continuing importance to local and national community life.

At the national level, after being ruled by three external powers since 1884, Papua New Guinea established its sovereignty in 1975 following almost 60 years of Australian administration. It became a separate Commonwealth realm with Queen Elizabeth II as its head of state and became a member of the Commonwealth of Nations in its own right.

Papua New Guinea Travel Video

Papua New Guinea Travel Video - Travelling in PNG can be challenging. With almost no Travelism infrastructure and limited information available in books and on websites, it can feel like youre stepping into the great unknown. But this is exactly why travellers find this country so compelling. Nothing is contrived for Travelists and every experience is authentic - even the main island of Bougainville is a largely DIY travel experience. The striking natural beauty and myriad complex cultures offer some riveting and truly life-affirming experiences. The island of New Guinea, of which Papua New Guinea is the eastern part, is only one-ninth as big as Australia, yet it has just as many mammal species, and more kinds of birds and frogs. PNG is Australias biological mirror-world. Both places share a common history going back tens of millions of years, but Australia is flat and has dried out, while PNG is wet and has become mountainous. As a result, Australian kangaroos bound across the plains, while in PNG they climb in the rainforest canopy.

For a glimpse into PNGs fascinating tribal cultures, the Highlands is where you should head (the town of Tari is a good place to see traditional Huli wigmen), while the Central, Oro Milne Bay Provinces are home to gorgeous reefs and historic wartime sites - including the countrys foremost attraction, the Kokoda Track. Also part of these eastern provinces, and about as far off the beaten track as you can get, the DEntrecasteaux Islands are like the land that time forgot, mountainous, jungly and totally undeveloped. The gritty capital Port Moresby, on the other hand, is big and sprawling and even a bit intimidating until you get under its skin and see past the bad press.

PNG is one of earths megadiverse regions, and it owes much of its diversity to its topography. The mountainous terrain has spawned diversity in two ways: isolated mountain ranges are often home to unique fauna and flora found nowhere else, while within any one mountain range you will find different species as you go higher. In the lowlands are jungles whose trees are not that different from those of Southeast Asia. Yet the animals are often startlingly different -- cassowaries instead of tapirs, and marsupial cuscus instead of monkeys.

The greatest diversity of animal life occurs at around 1500m above sea level. The ancestors of many of the marsupials found in these forests were derived from Australia some five million years ago. As Australia dried out they vanished from that continent, but they continued to thrive and evolve in New Guinea, producing a highly distinctive fauna. Birds of paradise and bowerbirds also abound there, and the forest has many trees typical of the forests of ancient Gondwana. As you go higher the forests get mossier and the air colder. By the time you have reached 3000m above sea level the forests are stunted and wreathed in epiphytes. Its a formation known as elfin woodland, and in it one finds many bright honeyeaters, native rodents and some unique relics of prehistory, such as the giant long-beaked echidna. Above the elfin woodland the trees drop out, and a wonderland of alpine grassland and herbfield dominates, where wallabies and tiny birds, like the alpine robin, can often be seen. It is a place where snow can fall and where early morning ice coats the puddles.
