Wewak - Hanseatic Cruise Ship loaded with tourists arrives in Wewak

There’s a whole beautiful and wonderful Papua New Guinea – outside of Port Moresby –waiting to be discovered. Normally quite and sleepy Wewak came alive on Tuesday this week with the inaugural Garamut and Flute Festival and the visit of luxury cruise ship Hanseatic.Also in the beautiful coastal town on the day was a small group of Japanese tourists.
The Hanseatic, a European cruise liner, had on board over 100 tourists who visited attractions in and around Wewak such as Wom War Memorial, Mission Hill, the main market, Moem Point, and the Garamut and Flute Festival at the Prince Charles Oval. It was scheduled to travel to Bali, however, cancelled this trip because of the recent bomb blasts and opted for PNG. The tourists were from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland and all gave the thumbs up to the East Sepik capital. They also spent a fair amount of money, including US dollars, buying the famed Sepik carvings and other arts and crafts.
