Hi there! The security situation in PNG comes very controversial over various internet sources! Many governement travel advice offices warn for terrible things to happen, while travellers report better situation. iI anybody has a good idea about how things are going this period, I would be greatfull to know! My plan is to travel solo and budget, so with public transport and stay at simple places, which might expose the backpacker to some more possible danger, instead of staying in top end hotels with security, private transport etc, which is not my case. I'm thinking to enter overland from Indonesia and stay for about 10 days, then return to Indonesia or fly ex Port Moresby. Many thanks guys Nik
Hi there! I'm researching for flights ex SE Asia (else ex AUS/ NZ) in low budget terms, for a trip to south pacific islands, including, preferably PNG, perhaps Fiji etc. The inter-island connections seem far too complicated and expensive. I have not decided where exactly to go, but since this will be my fist trip to the area, it seems that itinerary should depend greatly on feasibility and cost, instead of hitting my head to the wall, trying to get to certain places. My ideal (and flexible) plan would be to visit say 3 islands/ countries in about 3 weeks. Obviously this time frame won't be enough for an in-depth exploration, but I really like to see diffrent places instead of going around or relaxing in one. I guess that the islands can offer both natural scenery and a glimpse to local people life in each own distinctive way. I'm definately not looking to just lie on the beach. Any ideas, experiences, costs for a wallet- friendly flight combo, would be very very helpfull! Many thanks guys for your time and expertise, hoping it will be a long but beautiful way over there Nik
Is it possible to get a boat from papua new guinea to australia?
How is Papua New Guinea as a touristic destination? I've been thinking about it for years. Is it safe? Is it very expensive asI have seen in some places? Also would like the name of a repuable USA or UK tour company which does it.
the question is how do i warn travellers of a tour operator that has defrauded quite a few people of thousands of dollars in PNG? We have proof from USA/Italy?Australia. he is still operating.
I am trying to find Scratchley Road in Port Moresby. Can anyone help tell me where it is? Also does anyone have a street map with main roads marked on it, I can not find one on the web? Thanks

Hey fellas, does anybody has inforamtion about sea connection between australia PNG (then Indonesia). Are there ferries you can go with. The map shows me that there are small island between the finn of austalias north-east coast and PNG. Could you do that by hopping over the island by smaller boats for example? I dont want to travel illegaly of course, so offical ways are needed. cheers, robin
There's been a recent spate of deaths on the Kokoda Track but no information seems to be forthcoming on the circumstances/causes. Can anyone shed any reliable light on this? We can all speculate (been there, done that already) but would like facts, as well as reasonable comments. Thanks.
Hi, Hoping to get some advice about travel within PNG. We're looking at flights from Cairns to Port Moresby on Air Niugini, but upon arrival if we wanted to rent a 4 x 4, is it possible to drive from Port Moresby to Vanimo along the Eastern coast, and if so, approximately how long is the drive? Is it recommended or not advisable? Ideally, it would be nice if we are able to make stops in Alolau, Madang, and Wewak, but not sure how safe and accessible the roads are. Are we better off taking the inter-island flights to these locations? Any advice would be helpful! Many thanks, G_G

Hello, I'm travelling to Lae soon to work for approx. 1 week and I was seeking advice on what not to do. Is it safe to walk around during the day on your own? Will I be safe in my motel room a night? I've heard the yacht club is safe for a meal. I'm led to belive that the majority of population is friendly. If anyone can give some advice that would be appreciated. Many thanks
Hi I want to make a travel to Papua, can any one tell me the easy way from europe to get there? How is there for a short trip? Life night? I intend to go on new years eve. Tks regards
I've heard it referred to as "the worst place in the world to live" and also one of the most dangerous. Reading the tips and reviews on here makes it sound fine, if not a little bit rough... nothing compared to some of the other "dangerous" places I've looked at on this site. E.g., in Mogadisgu under "tips" it tells you to hire an armed escort. Here under "tips" it warns you about a loud bird and a betel nut addiction... Is this city a dangerous place or no? It from what I read on here, it sounds like a nice place to visit.
Hi, I am a Telecom Engineer from Pakistan. I have got a job in PNG. The problem I am facing is that there is no Papua New Guinea Embassy in Pakistan right now. Can any one advise me what to do? Thanks, Matloob
