West Papua travel guide

4.2
Reefs · Islands · Scuba & Snorkeling
Home to ancient tribal cultures and littered with hundreds of barely explored islands, there's an aura of wonder about the eastern Indonesian province of West Papua. The coastline's array of dramatic scenery, including hidden lagoons, shimmering waters, and insurmountably rocky islands, is sure to excite the imagination. While the province works through a complicated political situation--a big push for autonomy has long dominated news about West Papua--holiday-makers continue to come here, drawn by the remote location. You might need to obtain travel permits before planning a tour of West Papua's more far-flung areas, so check with the local authorities before you book anything.

Papua New Guinea travel guide

3.9
Zoos · Cemeteries · Hiking Trails
Occupying the eastern half of New Guinea and its offshore islands, Papua New Guinea represents an immense cultural and biological diversity. Densely carpeted in lush rainforest, the largely mountainous interior includes several active volcanoes. Because of this rugged landscape, Papua New Guinea remains one of the planet's least explored areas, thought to harbor as-yet undiscovered species. Remote mountain ranges nurture unique plant and animal life found nowhere else in the world, while the wildly fluctuating topography creates large differences in climate that further diversify the ecosystems. The people of Papua New Guinea are equally varied and distinct, with hundreds of tribes and communities--the vast majority of which are rural--and approximately 850 different languages. Don't expect much of a tourism infrastructure in Papua New Guinea (or infrastructure of any kind), but do expect any challenges to be richly rewarded by a real adventure unlike any other, in an untamed wilderness, untouched by commercialization.

Solomon Islands travel guide

Scuba & Snorkeling · Flea Markets · Ruins
Build your Solomon Islands trip around the many enriching diving experiences available, or plan a relaxing break on a luxuriously sandy and peaceful beach. Witness the vibrant culture of the local people on an eco-friendly guided walk, shopping for locally made handicrafts, and sampling the local cuisine. Solomon Islands still bears the marks of a very different aspect of its history, when some of the most intense fighting in World War II happened here. Learn about this dark chapter through memorials, museums, artifacts, and relics, both on land and under the sea.

Fiji travel guide

Scuba & Snorkeling · Marinas · Outdoor Activities
Located at the heart of the Central Pacific, Fiji is an archipelago of 333 islands and hundreds more tiny islets, many of which are uninhabited. The land masses range from vast Viti Levu, mountainous and covered in green jungle, to private desert islands available for rent. With bountiful sunshine, white sand beaches, tranquil oceans, and lush rainforest, it is no surprise that ecotourism in Fiji thrives. Local culture combines indigenous Fijian, Indo-Fijian, Asian, and European influences in a vibrant mix, with many of the smaller islands still retaining a strong element of traditional island life. Explore the countless pockets of paradise to find your favorite.
