    • Papua New Guinea in February......

      Papua New Guinea Oct 19, 2014 at 5:17 AM

      Hubby and I would like to book a cruise to Papua New Guinea to celebrate our wedding anniversary. But it is in February. Just interested to hear of others experiences travelling in PNG at that time of the year. Particularly in regard to rain and health issues. Any other suggestions for great places to cruise to at that time if the year. We have already done most of the Sth Pacific Islands. Thank you.

    • Cruising to PNG and risk of Malaria

      Papua New Guinea Sep 3, 2014 at 9:23 PM

      My hubby and 3 children (ages 10, 7 and 5) are cruising to PNG next week. The cruise is for 10 days. 4 of these days will be spent visiting surrounding islands such as Alotau etc. These will be day trips only from around 9.00 - 4.00 when we have to jump back on the ship. I have a script here for all of us for malarone tablets. I have been doing some reading up on these and spoke to my Chemist yesterday. He suggested another pill called Doxycycline. My problem is that my kids can't take any anti nausea drugs just in case any of these medicines make them feel ill. What is the risk of us actually contracting this disease when we won't actually be frequenting land that much? As it stands, it looks like we may only visit one island as it is. I really don't want the kids feeling sick the whole trip due to the medication, and am tossing up whether we should just enjoy the cruise and not get off on any islands. Would wearing long sleeve shirts and pants and smothering ourselves in Bushmans etc suffice considering the length of time we are there??? Could someone give me some suggestions or scenarios of what they think is best. I have read that some people have moved there to live for a couple of years, and they have chosen not to take any anti malaria drugs. I'm in two minds of what to do...... HELP! We leave next Wednesday.....
      Thanks

      Must see and tribal people

      Papua New Guinea Jun 30, 2014 at 1:42 PM

      In October, my friend and I, travel for four weeks in Papua New Guinea. We will in this regard, see what you think is at MUST SEE/DO.

      We are interested in nature, animals, sports, hiking, diving / snokling, culture and beach.

      Because we have no interest in the Australian history, we choose not to take on the Kokoda trip.

      We'd love to go out and visit some original tribal people (also mudmen). Do you have suggestions for where it could be? And which company we should book at?

      We also want to go out to the islands of New Ireland and New Britain. Would it be more advisable to select only one of the islands, in the case of the islands shall we choose?

      Papua to Solomon is. by boat? + malaria precautions

      Papua New Guinea Jul 14, 2013 at 9:44 AM

      Hi guys,

      1) I am sorry for repeating this question once again as I did about one year ago. I am wondering if here is anyone with fresh experience:

      I am still thinking about visiting Solomon Islands from Papua New Guinea. I am considering an alternative way of how to get to your country - traveling by boat / cargo freighter etc. I hear there is a boat link between southern Bougainville in Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands (Shortlands). Do you think it is doable? It would be of great convenience since im planning to visit this island group anyway.

      So, is there any chance to make it from Papua New Guinea to Solomon Islands by the sea? If so, what immigration procedures on your side would be in such a case?

      2) I know, I know I should refer to official recommendation given by doctors or to health information websites, but i would like to know your practice and opinion. Do you take any chemoprophylaxes when in PNG and Solomon Islands? If so, are these drugs readily available for purchase in Port Moresby? The thing is drug stores in my country have commonly very poor selection of these medications...

      Thank you for your reaction and information in advance...
