Kokopo

Kokopo - description of the city:

Kokopo is the name of  a city in Papua New Guinea. It is the also the capital city area of the eastern area of the province/district Nеw Britаin. Because it became the new capital of this provincial area, the population went up drastically, by several thousand. The former capital was a victim of a tragic volcanic eruption.

Generally, in Kokopo, the tеmperature levels are usually fairly high on average. These high temperatures last all year-round. As somewhat of a contrast to these high-level temperatures, there is also a decent amount of rain throughout the year, with most of the rain falling around the start of the year, particularly in March. The time of year with highest temperatures is around September and October, with the middle of the year being the coolest, around July.

All over the region in which the city is located, there are multiple mountains and volcanoes, some of which may still be active. An eruption in 1994 demolished the city of Rabaul, and the destruction caused the movement of capital city designation to Kokopo. Remnants of the old demolished city can be accessed via a highway from Kokopo. The province can be accessed by air only, as it is on an island. Roads and a highway serve as ways to get around in this city. Some tourist accommodation is available in the city.

When in the city and surrоunding areas, people can go diving to see the beautiful marine life. Old World War II wrecks underwater can be seen by divers in areas close to the city off the coast.
