Government Building Tourist Spot
Take time to visit National Parliament House, the country's parliament building that combines old and new architecture. Artistic mosaics grace the building's exterior walls, and inside more displays await. A large wood carving depicts the country's four areas, while glass cases hold insect collections that include huge species and even the native Queen Alexandra's Birdwing. Be aware that photography is not allowed within the attraction. To be safe, go with a local guide, as bandits are known to peruse this area.

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.
