It is not better and no worse than anywhere else in the world.......There are places in Brisbane and in most cities here in Australia that I would warn you from entering as they can be dangerous.

The trouble is that the Media seems to just love beating up any incident in PNG as being far worse than what it is. I used to go down to a small Island just of the coast about 80 or so kilometres from Lae, I would not see my 3 young children for 2-3 days as the locals, particularly the older meri's would snavel them as soon as we landed and treat them like royality.(which tended to cause problems once we got them back home) I was never once worried that anything would happen to them.

Be sensible about what you do, wear and where you go....same advice for anywhere else in the world.
