9.Papua New Guinea
|Papua New Guinea|
Papua New Guinea is an exotic island country off the North coast of Australia. Sharing the island of New Guinea with Indonesia and also consisting of a number of offshore islands in the region of Melanesia, the country is home to a rich tribal culture that subsumes more than 800 languages and several tribes.
The fascinating culture of Papua New Guinea is best exhibited in the numerous places to visit in Papua New Guinea, and is popular with tourists around the globe. Other than these places, its beaches are also famous as they provide a paradise recluse from the troubles of the world.
The union of Comoros is a group of three. The island of grand comores, moheli and anjouan. The island of Mayotte is part of Comoros island but not of the union. Situated in the Mozambique channel on the east coast of Africa, the union is member of african union.
The insularity of the Comoros leads to many areas of natural beauty and an incredibly unusual landscape. The rate of endemism of terrestrial and marine fauna and flora, including algae, is very high. So it’s understandable that the Comoros sees ecotourism as a top priority.
The flora is part of daily life and is used in many different spheres. Plants are used for food, for medicine, in artisanal cosmetics, in perfumes and decoration. There are more than 2,000 species of flora in the Comoros. The ylang ylang used in the perfume industry is an asset of the archipelago.
The volcanic activity designed the coastline. Mangroves can be found across the islands. They are productive, providing organic materials and a habitat suitable for many species. Terrestrial, freshwater (birds, etc.), marine wildlife (fish, crustaceans, molluscs and various other invertebrates) are in the mangroves.
Coral reefs are appealing for tourists. They are extraordinarily colourful, forming intriguingly shaped habitats and are home to numerous species of wildlife. The reefs are a fascinating world to explore when diving and are an important tourist draw for our visitors.
