Your new local habits in Papua New Guinea

Hello everyone,

Living in Papua New Guinea is a great way to immerse in a new culture and lifestyle.

Have you embraced local customs since you've lived in Papua New Guinea? If so, which one(s)?

Did local customs change the way you see things, appreciate life or organize your daily routines? As far as the language is concerned, did you learn new expressions or words and do you use them?

What do you like most about the lifestyle in your host country? Are there any local specificities you are still struggling with?

Thanks in advance,



I have been in Papua New Guinea from around 3 years but have never inhibited any local customs and traditions

But the good things is the people here  are happy to invite you and allow you to participate in their customs

You show them love and they will give the double of it in return specially the coastal people

Yes i have learnt lot words and use them daily
