Papua New Guinea (PNG) is one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world. It is probably the most diverse yet least explored country in the Asia-Pacific region with over 600 islands and more than 800 different cultural groups that have a wide range of dialects, art, music, dance, fashion and architecture. PNG is scenically spectacular, with lush rainforests, flooded deltas, pristine highlands, thick jungles, active volcanoes and picturesque mountains. The culture of Papua New Guinea is unique and untouched. In the remote villages visitors will find tribes that passionately maintain traditions through art, initiations and Sing Sings. In Papua New Guinea festivals are known as Sing-Sings. Dozens, or even hundreds, of tribes speaking mutually unintelligible languages assemble for a spirited and colorful celebration and competition of dancing, costumes, and other tribal rites.
