Port Moresby homes are fenced, with wire and in the majority of cases with Watchman.


I made the visit to the capital of Papua New Guinea to the end. I heard during the trip violent and horrific stories about the capital. As in all stories, I didn't know if they were truth or had part of fiction. If the river sounds like it is that something.

Port Moresby homes are fenced, with wire and in the majority of cases with Watchman. During the day there is no problem in visiting the city and surroundings, Despite the bad reputation and the advice of the people, as usual not some white tourists visit its citizens we sew councils, They worry about our security. I remember the bad reputation that was the visit to the vicinity of the cemetery, before leaving the road and warned us several times that we should take the first taxi back, as the buses were safe in that area. That morning I had something plugged ears I did not pay them attention. To talk to citizens of some shacks I found friendly and hospital that were. But remember that you must never lower our guard.

There are some curious to visit in the capital, as for example the beach, markets, shopping by shopping malls (almost always second hand clothing, What Australians do not want), … I also recommend visiting one of the Islands near the city. To be able to visit should go to commercial centre close to the terminal port load and ask at a restaurant. They will help you to find a person with a boat, Surely fisherman, that will take you to where you want. Another faster and more comfortable option is to go to the fish market, everyone knows the place, and ask the fishermen that arrive if they are made a tour around the Islands. To move through the city, you can use the bus network, really efficient and very cheap, too often pass.
