My wife and I went to Port Moresby last summer for our 20th wedding anniversary. We went by Virgin Australia, and their services were more than we expected. Their staff were so efficient and always on time. They served very delicious meals on our way. We really loved the city of Port Moresby. The city has great and friendly people who helped us get our way around. Our favorite spots in Port Moresby were Port Moresby Nature market, Varirata National Park, and the Ela Beach market.
