Port Moresby

In contrast to the surrounding wilderness, national capital Port Moresby offers some impressive cultural attractions and a decent array of amenities. Highlights include the national museum, full of artifacts and fascinating exhibits, a beautiful nature park, and the intricate mosaic facade of the parliament buildling. On returning from weeks in the bush, however, Port Moresby's greatest draws are the modestly good restaurants and comfortable hotels, which all of a sudden feel like five-star luxury. Crime is quite common in Port Moresby, so be careful about straying off the beaten track. In the build up to your vacation in Port Moresby, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our Papua New Guinea online route planner .

Places to visit with Port Moresby

Where to stay in Port Moresby

Hotels are dotted rather haphazardly throughout Port Moresby, and tend to be somewhat expensive. Several four- and five-star accommodations cluster on the small peninsula also called Port Moresby, but known to locals simply as "Town." The nearby Ela Beach ranks as one of Port Moresby's most scenic areas and a popular recreational spot. The suburb Boroko is most convenient for public transport, but this once-bustling commercial center has lost much of its luster in recent years. Most hotels will arrange pick-up and drop-off from the airport.
