Papua New GuineaIf you think you have already travelled to remote, off-the-beaten track locations, think again. Linguistically, wonderfully untouched Papua New Guinea is the world's most diverse country, with more than 700 native tongues occupying the eastern part of the world's second largest island. Tourism is not yet a major industry here and the awesome mountain ranges and vast landscapes have made a lot of Papua New Guinea inaccessible to the outside world. This has meant that countless species of flora and fauna have remained protected, along with the unique cultures of the many hill tribes. Scott Dunn’s highlights for Papua New Guinea: A brilliant place for wildlife, and in particular bird watching, the Wahgi Valley is home to exceptional varieties of orchids and birds of paradise. Time your visit to see the famous Mount Hagen Sing Sing, when in August, tribes across Papua New Guinea come to perform their courtship dances, and mimic the birds of paradise mating calls and displays.
