Papua New Guinea Papua New Guinea is a country in Oceania which has a cultural diversity absurd. To get an idea, even though a small country, Papua New Guinea is the country with the most widely spoken languages, about 850 (according to wikipedia). By being in a place a well inhospitable and inaccessible, much of the culture remains latent throughout the country. There are some pictures of curious inhabitants of Papua New Guinea.
The Papua New Guinea (PNG) national dress is called 'meri blaus' in the local pidgin: Tok-pisin. It has been worn for many years by women in PNG. You can wear a meri blaus with a 'laplap' or sarong or a long skirt. #PapuaNewGuinea
