Three of the 1000 Places

Visitors to Papua New Guinea tend to be well-traveled. One of the genuine pleasures of living there was meeting people who had been to the world's most exotic and exciting destinations. They almost always placed Papua New Guinea at or near the top of their best travel experiences.

Many of those travelers seemed to have enough experience to write a book like the New York Times best seller: 1,000 Places to See Before You Die--A Traveler's Life List by Patricia Schultz. Widely available in bookshops, gift shops and travel supply stores, this book sits on the shelves of countless active and armchair travelers.

As you probably know, the popular book lists and briefly describes a wide range of not-to-be-missed places from around the world. I count 189 places in the United States, forty-eight in France, twenty-two in Australia, eight in Fiji and an impressive three in Papua New Guinea.

Those three places in Papua New Guinea are: Ambua Lodge, Sepik Spirit and The Highland Sing-Sing Festival in Mount Hagen..all are on the classic Mount Hagen Cultural Show itineraries.
