Expand your social circle in Papua New Guinea

Hello everyone,

Moving to Papua New Guinea means leaving one's family and friends behind. Creating a circle of friends or joining an existing one should therefore be paramount in order to fight loneliness in your host country.

But how can one develop a social network in Papua New Guinea? Where and how to meet people there?

How easy is it to meet locals? What about cultural specificities?

Share your advice and experience!

Many thanks in advance,


Anyone in POM want to make new friends? My wife and I are Americans who have lived in POM for 18 months, we've been back in the USA for a while and will return to POM earthy May 2017.
