Madang would definately be my choice! Find Crancket lagoon (sp?) and eat @ Smugglers Inn. (15-yr.-old info) Don't drive between any city seperated by significant distance (eg. Lae/Madang).

I lived in PNG and I would agree with baquio that Madang is really worth seeing. If you can get a direct flight then it is well worth the visit.

I have also lived in PNG- both Moresby and Madang.

Do not go to or stay in moresby if you can help it. The place is filthy and very violent.

As for Madang unless you are interested in fishing and diving I wouldn't bother going there either.

PNG is not a "tourist friendly" destination for independant travellers. You should go with an organised tour- this is due to safety reasons.
