Kokopo Things to Do

    Vunapope Mission (Sisters of War)

    by jorgejuansanchez Written Feb 25, 2015

    This is a very historic place (Do you know about Sisters of Wars telemovie?).
    It is up a hill at the outskirts of Kokopo.
    I went there to visit its cathedral, which was built in the form of a shell. There are frescoes, totems, and old colonial buildings since the German's times.
    The complex is huge. There are many sisters living, and a press, school, gardens, etc. It is indeed a lovely place and the views over the sea are wonderful.
    You can stay there since there is a guest house, what I did.

    Kokopo Museum

    by jorgejuansanchez Written Feb 21, 2015

    It is located close to the beach and is devoted to WWII. I did not go inside, I hate wars. I just saw the weapons across the fences, for free.

    Haus Kaikai: Clean and cheap place

    by jorgejuansanchez Written Feb 21, 2015

    It was in the main road, and with good prices. The woman in charge was very nice. Kaikai means food, to eat.

    Favorite Dish: I ordered chicken and some vegetables plus a local coca cola, There is no menu.
