    1 Sunday, February 20, 2022 Honiara, Solomon Islands Embark 7:00 PM
    View of Honiara, Solomon Islands

    Honiara, located on the northern coast of the island of Guadalcanal, is the capital of the Solomon Islands, which lie between Vanuatu and Papua New Guinea. Pijin is the principal language. The climate is tropical, and while the most pleasant time to visit is winter, July to September, the cooling sea breezes temper the humidity and heat along all coasts year-round. The island became the scene of the important Guadalcanal Campaign during World War II. Read more about Honiara, Solomon Islands

    Rabaul is a town on the Gazelle Peninsula in East New Britain province, Papua New Guinea. A busy commercial centre, it is situated on Simpson Harbour, a sheltered inlet of Blanche Bay. Almost the entire old town of Rabaul is buried under volcanic ash, the result of a volcanic eruption in 1994, and one is in awe of the scenery, which resembles an alien prehistoric landscape. Mt Tavurvur is still active and makes for a very interesting trekking tour. Read more about Rabaul, Papua New Guinea

    Madang is the capital of Madang Province and a port on the north coast of Papua New Guinea. It was settled by Germans in the 19th C, then under Australian administration from 1919, and occupied by Japanese 1942-1944 when the town was virtually wiped out. Today its population of 24,000 includes many expatriates, and the city is the base for many NGOs and business branches. The town is said to be one of the prettiest towns in the South Pacific, due in part to its dramatic location on the tip of a peninsula encircled by mountains to 4000m.
