I found Port Moresby somewhat unhinging. The amount of security necessary made me a little nervous, esp after coming from Asia where i never had to worry about personal safety. A friend that i stayed with had been attacked 3 times and almost lost his ear in a knife attack.
If there was ever an argument against colonialism and capitalism, PNG is it. The market is destroying too much of what is/was good about the country.
However, i was at a meeting for a week in Madang at a rather downscale resort and really liked it. Along the ocean, comfortable temps.
