Papua New Guinea

Overview

One of the very first landmasses to be populated by humans (after Africa and Eurasia), Papua New Guinea is also one of the least explored places in the world. A large majority of its residents live in rural villages and communities with very little contact with the rest of the world, making this region one of the most diverse and richly cultured. A very limited tourism infrastructure and a shortage of reliable destination information in circulation makes Papua New Guinea a challenge to reach. Flights are often costly and budget options are hard to find outside of Port Moresby. Once there, however, visitors are rewarded with some of the world's most biologically diverse ecosystems to explore. Here, you can find information about monster hunting in the rainforest, photographing the traditions of one of the thousands of indigenous communities, trekking the famous Kokoda Trail, or even get some tips on how to budget travel within Papua New Guinea.
