Papua New Guinea

The International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) recently declared Papua New Guinea to be the most biologically diverse region on the planet. It remains the most unexplored region with over 850 different societies and tribes with many new tribes only being discovered in the last 20-30 years. Tourism is growing here every year and so it's best to plan a trip before the crowds arrive.
