Papua New Guinea (PNG) - All the specific travel information you need to know

 To be continued...(last update Fri, 08 April 11)

For those of you who have never been to Papua New Guinea or are wondering "Where the hell is Papua New Guinea?" well god bless your little cotton socks.  I have decided to provide you with some of my favourite websites and some I have never seen before for you to peruse through. 

For those of you who definately want to travel ensure you take out Travel Insurance and research a bit about the country before you travel.  Especially about health care and safety, security. PNG is not exactly one of the safest countries in the world to travel to but then again it is peoples choice where they want to travel to in the world.  Always take extreme caution and register your passport and details with your country's embassy.  Each country have an embassy website where people  can go and browse through, other wise if you have a PNG High Commission or Embassy in your country, why not go in for a visit and see what you can find out?  Or if there is no PNG Embassy's in your country, the Australian High Commission or Embassy should be able to help you out (may be?)  The type of travel you want to take whether it's a five star or back packer style is really up to the traveller to decide how they want to organise their trip.  Some travel agents may be handy in guiding you, libraries may be handy, internet, or you can speak to people who have lived there or visited there, etc.  However the onus is on the traveller to make sure they are armed with the information and if they can afford a trip any where in the world or even in their own back yard.  You'd be surprised at how many people travel with great ignorance and end up in trouble and try to blame other people for their demise.  This does not work with me as I will be quick to point out specifc blunders you have made along the way once I hear your story.
