It’s PNG Expect the Unexpected – Papua New Guinea is truly one of the last frontiers, the country is a wild & adventurous place that offers some tremendous scuba diving, combined with many unique and fascinating things to see above the water.
One of the world’s most heterogeneous countries, Papua New Guinea (PNG) has a population of around 6.5 million people, but over 850 languages and nearly 1000 traditional societies & ethnic indigenous groups.
X-Ray magazine recently published an extensive section on scuba diving in Papua New Guinea featuring articles on Tufi, Milne Bay, New Ireland and New Britain and asked me to write an article providing an overview of the country, its people and its recent history.
The timing was perfect as I had nearly completed the Complete Guide to Diving Papua New Guinea and needed to write an overview of the country that put everything in to context for people visiting for the first time.
