Re: Tourists seem to want to chill out with traditional culture

You really don't understand tourists, do you? The most adventurous ones of all are the ones willing to get out in the bush and into the villages. Not those coming to cities. You can't convert people into what fits your perspective or image. Instead, you need to get away from your pet ideas, step back, and look at how tourists actually behave. Only then can you develop strategies that might actually attract some more to PNG. The fact is, as long as there's a Cairns and a Bali, it will be a steep uphill climb.
About this board - the Kumul Discussion Forum is administered and set up by PNGScape with the permission of the founder of the board and the Kumul Foundation pursuant to the Kumul Foundation's object of facilitating discussion and debate on issues of significance to Papua New Guinea's national development.
The old Kumul board can be found at www.voy.com/1950/
Discussion must be conducted respectfully, and rationally, with the object being that the dissemination of ideas will lead to action that will contribute to PNG's ongoing development.
