Hi Guys and Gals,

I am new here. I will be moving to PNG soon for work, So wondering what is it like in PNG Port Moresby .  :D

Hi there...
I'm Ady from Malaysia...
Currently in Lae PNG... nothing much to share except that i was initiated to PNG by diagnosed with malaria early this year hahahaha...

Hi and welcome to PNG.

I am from Port Moresby and would happily be friends. Have you settled in well? Do you need any assistance with anything?

Hi I'm from PNG. I live in Port Moresby but I love travelling to other provinces for a getaway. I have been to a few beautiful places in PNG. Who's into travelling around PNG? Let's be travel buddies.

Hi Bro,

I've been here in PNG since last  as of now i don't have any bad experience in POM.
POM is a nice country rich in many thing.
The best way to make you safe in PNG is to stay at home at night. There's no night life in PNG.
and during the day always lock the door of your car.

cheers!

I Beg to differ. Me and my expat friends go to Lamana and Cosmopolitan. As long as you do not wander off to places like Morauta/ Gerehu you'll be fine. I would urge you to make friends with locals.

Hi!

I'm Rams. I'm presently looking at a job offer in Port Moresby for the position of staff nurse. I'm hoping to talk to fellow nurses working there.

Hoping to hear from you.

Hey guys! I'm moving to Lae next week and looking to meet up with any Expats in Lae. Keen for some golf or any sport really, as well as hiking or weekend trips away.
Send me a message if you're in Lae and keen to meet up for a beer or something.

Hi All,
I moved to Moresby a couple weeks ago for a two year secondment. Mainly I've been getting used to the heat (I moved from Canberra so the temperature change is a bit of a shock to the system!)... and yesterday I discovered I have malaria, just as a nice welcome to country present!
Anyway, once I am over the malaria I'm interested in any form of weekend activity - particularly beaches; I can't get over how much potential ela beach has to be really quite beautiful and yet it is completely filthy and unswimmable. I have been told theres a number of nice beaches in the areas around POM and am super keen to explore but don't want to do it by myself... both out of safety concerns and pure loneliness!
Also interested in any other form of activity... basically I want to make sure I make the most of the two years that I am here and really get to know the place as much as possible.
Cheers
Todd

Hi Todd,
I am a local from Port Moresby. Yes there are many nice beaches around pom. If you are interested, private mail me and we can seduce a weekend activity. Our people are very friendly and my family is always ready and willing to assist and make new friends.
Are you also into any type of sport? Tennis, badminton, squash, footsal?

Hi there - that would be great! I am definitely keen to check out some beaches and/or explore a little 😃
Let me see how I feel vis a vis the malaria over the next few days and ill be in touch!
I don't mind a hit of tennis or squash, though to be honest I don't think id be able to handle something like that in the heat just yet... its quite a shock to the system moving from Canberra!

OK great
