The Culture

Papua New Guinea's cultural diversity is reflected in its traditional music and dance. As you travel through the country, you'll have the opportunity to experience the mesmerizing rhythms of tribal drums, the melodic sounds of bamboo flutes, and the energetic dances of various indigenous groups. Each beat and movement tells a unique story of the people and their connection to the land. The Goroka Show, an annual gathering of tribes, is a prime example of this auditory and visual extravaganza.

One of the most immersive experiences in Papua New Guinea is the opportunity to interact with the locals. The people are warm and welcoming. You'll have the chance to engage in age-old traditions, from crafting traditional artifacts to joining in on a game of bilas, where body decoration is an art form. These meaningful interactions will give you a profound sense of connection with the culture and heritage of the country.

The majority of Papua New Guineans identify with various Christian denominations. The older generation typically adheres to more conservative practices, but the younger generations adopt a more relaxed approach while still holding on to their Christian beliefs.

The people are very fond of their customs, and you'll see this in ceremonies that mark important life events such as births, funerals, and weddings.
