Visit West New Britain by Esther Haro

MOST people discover and experience Papua New Guinea's true identity and beauty by paying a visit to its 20 provinces. Each has something unique to offer the unsuspecting visitor, whether it be its flora and fauna, its culture and tradition or a traditional land mark.
Even today, Papua New Guineans are still discovering and experiencing what the other provinces have in store.

Whilst the expectation is on the tourists to do most of the travelling and to discover PNG, the local tourists in the country are also slowly coming to enjoy and learn about another province.

I had the opportunity to do just that when I visited West New Britain province recently on an assignment.

As the Air Niugini came closer to the Hoskins airport, the passengers were welcomed by an arch of beautiful colours sprawled high above the ocean.

I have often heard people referring to the place as Oil palm country and had seen t-shirts with such prints but I was still not prepared to take in all I could see.

Oil palms dominated both sides of the sealed Kimbe hoskins highway. As the open back car I travelled in went further, I became familiar with the sight.

On the sides of the road were a heap of oil palm which were ready to be picked up.

People waved and called Molavi or good afternoon as the car drove past. West New Britain is truly an amazing place with friendly, open and welcoming people.

It boasts of hot springs, coral reefs, white sandy beaches, and a sea that teems with a myriad of marine life.

At the Kimbe market a whole lot of garden produce such as tapioca, banana, sweet potato, yams, green leaves and fruits are also sold at affordable prices.

Of course another food item that is of high demand is the egg of the wild fowl. The wild fowl is one of the animals that comes under the jurisdiction of the Nature and Conservation.

The wild fowl are not to be killed and there is a limited number of eggs that the villagers can harvest.

The eggs are larger than the normal eggs of a chicken and in order for the vbillagers to find them, they have to dig right into the ground where the eggs are buried by the mother fowl.

In West New Britain, I had the privilege to stay in Mora Mora which is 30 minutes drive from the Hoskins Airport.

The Mora Mora village is situated along the sea and faces Kimbe island. Sunrises and sunsets are a spectacular sight.

The Mora Mora Technical Boys school is also located at Mora Mora village and is managed by principal Philip Colada.

The schools has churned out a lot of students who now work in various trades in organisations in the country.

The other technical schools which also playa vital role in helping young people get a second chance in education include Hoskins Girls Technical school and Poinin technical school which is co-educational.
