Papua New Guinea
Turns out, says Jessica Morris, that travel companies are beginning to organize tours to PNG, and she explains why this makes sense and why PNG is really the new frontier for adventure travel. She heads there and finds "banks thick with mangroves" where villages are built on stilts to built to withstand floodwaters (a not uncommon mode of architecture in this part of the world). She encounters fisherfolk in their canoes catching dinner and where home-dried tobacco leaves are used as a sort of primitive Off to deter mosquitoes. Does this sound like fun to you? Well, at the very least it's adventuresome. Maybe give the idea a try if you’re up for something on the exotic side.
