PNG Tour 2011 – Foo Wedding

Does

Does it get any better than a trip away with your mates and other halves, in a tropical paradise with endless adventure and water sport options? Welcome to Kokopo and the Kingdom of Foo. Upon arrival at Kokopo and looking out over the ocean, you breath is taken away by the deep blue ocean in front of you and the smoking volcanoes to the west.

I highly recommend you visit Kokopo and East New Britain. You must stay at the Kokopo Beach Bungalow Resort which is a great place to unwind and use as a base for all that the region has to offer.
