Siassi is located approximately 270 miles (435 kilometers) from Port Moresby, the capital of Papua New Guinea.
For an authentic Papua New Guinea experience, find the time to also look beyond Siassi and discover the scenic and cultural treasures that the region offers. Satwag, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the northwest, and Cape Gloucester, 45 miles (72 kilometers) to the west of Siassi are also worth checking out.
Tourists in Papua New Guinea often go to the region's open-air markets.
Those searching for some fresh air and thrills should get their fix by signing up for a hiking or mountain climbing adventure.
Try popular dishes or beverages to discover the local culture. Breadfruit (ulu) as well as coconuts are commonly used in meals here. Chicken pot and kokoda fish are much-loved dishes worth trying. Top it all off with saksak (dumplings made with sugar and sago), a popular dessert.
Those vacationing in Siassi or in other towns and cities in Papua New Guinea on the 16th of September, can take part in national Independence Day events and celebrations.
Really great vacations are about making friends with new people and enjoying new experiences. Papua New Guinea is an excellent place for such a break.
