Paradise Magazine – Air Niugini

From the editor’s desk: walk with the Huli Wigmen

From the editor’s desk: walk with the Huli Wigmen
Walk with the Huli Wigmen, meet the Canadian riverboat captain who braved the painful crocodile ceremony in the remote Sepik River region, and read about soccer star David Beckham’s visit to Papua New Guinea.

It’s all in the January/February issue of Paradise magazine.

Once again, our intrepid writers and photographers have been out an about all over PNG and Asia/Pacific.

It never ceases to amaze me how many colourful stories and characters are to be found in the region.

Chris McLennan goes on assignment with the Wigmen and his photographs provide a stunning insight into life in the Southern Highlands.

Still in PNG, Ken Hoppen dips his toes in the water at the jungle-fringed diving resort Tawali, located in PNG’s beautiful Milne Bay.

This issue is also special, with three PNG writers reporting on travels in their own country.

Meanwhile, our annual almanac is back. It provides a snapshot of the must-see events in the region for 2016.

We also visit a yoga retreat in Bali, taste test five delicacies in Hong Kong (think mouth-watering mooncakes and scallop dumplings), and explore Vietnam’s bustling Ho Chi Minh City.

If, like me, you’re a chocolate lover, you’ll enjoy the story about the ‘secret’ PNG plantation that is producing some of the world’s best cacao beans and is being used in high-end chocolate in Australia.

Happy reading and flying.
