Looking to go to PNG for a week after some time in northern Australia. I wont have time to trek out to remote islands to see the Birds of Paradise, but I'd like to see some beautiful islands and areas with the most culture. Does anyone have suggestions of what islands I can concentrate on with 6-7 full days?
Thanks for any advice.
Me and a friend will visit Palau during Christmas. We want to dive and snorkel 5 or more days and wonder what is better: dive cruise (staying overnight on the bost) or diving package with hotel accomondation?
All recommendations - also for overnight kayaking tours welcome!

For anyone who's interested, I just came back from a fantastic month long circular trip around PNG the Bismark Archipelago, Bougainville and the Solomon Islands with my wife and 2 teenage children. I'd searched this forum
extensively before I left for recent information on travelling through Bougainville to the Solomons but no one seems to have done it recently and everywhere else I looked or asked, the advise was don't do it. Well I'm glad to report it was an exceptionally rewarding travel…

Hi lovely people,
I have spent the last few days reading many topics on Fiji and I am now looking for a bit of advice (please!)
Some details: My boyfriend and I intend to head to Fiji after 6 months of travelling in South America, before heading to New Zealand for a month. As you can imagine the plan will be predominantly to relax (which is why I would like it booked and worry free in advance as we plan to do the rest on an ad hoc basis). That said I like to have the option of some activities…
Hello all, I'm flying in to Suva for a work trip in early November and cant miss the opportunity to see some of Fiji while I'm there.
I'll be flying in and out of Suva and want to take 3 or 4 days off before I go back to sunny England.
Basically, is there any advice on a very short itinerary leaving from Suva going to the other islands and seeing some of the Fiji I see on the photos!?
I'll be alone and looking for cheap(ish) accommodation, but for something amazing I'm happy to pay.
