Luxury Travel Spots

Living the High Life in Papua New Guinea

A little north from Australia lays the Oceanian country called Papua New Guinea. It is one of the most culturally diverse in the world, with more than 800 different languages and different customary communities. It is also one of the least explored tourist hotspots mainly because of its myths and urban legends, which had transcended fear and reluctance among travelers. Still, the exotic Papua New Guinea offers luxury options for tourists with impeccable taste.
