Papua New Guinea is indeed the last frontier. The Highlands of New Guinea was only discovered in the 1930s. Many species of wild life exists with some new species discovered in the recent years. Culturally, Papua New Guinea would be the most diverse country in the world with more than 820 languages, representing twelve percent of the world’s population. Many of these people still practices their traditions and cultural which was passed on to them by their fathers. Papua New Guinea does not only offer sun and surf to those who wish to relax but also adventure for those who dare to discover this tropical paradise.
