Buka Island Vacation Packages
Taking a road trip through the villages, towns and cities in the area of Buka Island will give you a terrific overview of the diverse people and landscapes in this part of Papua New Guinea. Interesting places within a relatively short distance of Buka Island are Sabah, 35 miles (56 kilometers) to the northwest, and Nissan Island, 60 miles (97 kilometers) to the southeast.
If you want to stay indoors, make a beeline for Papua New Guinea's craft workshops. These are ideal places to learn about the region's rich cultural tapestry and perhaps pick up an unusual memento.
If you think a great vacation is working up a sweat in wild places, then join one of the many hiking and mountain climbing trips the area around Buka Island has to offer.
Taste the essence of Papua New Guinea by checking out the food enjoyed here. Breadfruit (ulu) and coconuts are commonly used as part of meals here. Popular menu items include chicken pot and kokoda fish, but of course there are many more tasty meal options for foodies to try. Those who would like to try something else, should try saksak (dumplings made with sugar and sago), a lovely way to complete your Papua New Guinea culinary adventure.
The world is a book and if you don't travel you may stay on only one page. So get out and make the most of the beauty and adventures that await in Buka Island.
