Stop at Papua New Guinea's popular war relics and monuments, it's an excellent way to get to know the region's colorful past.
See a side of Papua New Guinea most visitors don't see by spending time with a passionate local guide on one of the guided nature walks and wildlife spotting tours.
To truly get a taste for the area in which you are traveling, take the time to stop in at the region's cafés and restaurants. These are excellent places to get to know residents and try out food that is commonly eaten here. Breadfruit (ulu) and coconuts are two of the signature ingredients. All-time favorite meals are chicken pot and kokoda fish, but of course there are many other interesting meal options for foodies to try. But your meal is not over until you have tried saksak (dumplings made with sugar and sago), a common dessert.
Your time in Kar will reward you with breathtaking photos and delightful memories that will last forever.
