6 things to do

All Places Papua New Guinea

Jais Aben Resort

A half hour bus ride out of town. Take a local bus and walk a mile or so to the resort through rural PNG (at least in contrast to Madang!) to find a large low-key resort primarily catering to scuba enthusiasts and family groups. It has pleasant green and blue surroundings and plentiful waterfront views as well as a pool and several dining areas. (NOTE: as at June 2009 the Jais Aben dive shop has closed, however, they can arrange for the dive store at Madang Resort to pick you up from the jetty at Jais Aben).

The Madang Lodge

A short walk from the centre of town and is clean and comfortable. To save money, ask for the non-air-conditioned rooms which have two single beds each with a simple thin mattress on the wooden bunk and share showers and toilets.

Madang Resort Hotel

Caters to scuba divers (who seemingly don't leave the resort, except by boat) with an on-site dive shop. A little further out on the main road are several hotels, many catering to both tourists and local business travelers.
