Papua New Guinea - Blogger Ambassador - Simon Heyes


In December 2014 I was awarded the honour of being Papua New Guinea Tourism's inaugural Travel Blogging Ambassador for the UK. Amazing!

In May 2015, I took an incredible 12-day trip to Papua New Guinea...with my dad. 

Working with PNG Tourism, we created an itinerary that took in some of Papua New Guinea's most incredible scenery, culture and wildlife. Papua New Guinea is one of the most unexplored, culturally diverse places on the planet, and I couldn't wait to visit.

This page acts as the main hub for all the blog posts, videos and images from my trip in May. I hope you enjoy reading and watching my stories from PNG, and feel free to join the conversation or ask any questions using the hashtag #SimonInPNG, or use the comments box below :)
