Dear all, I am going to Fiji in December and dont have a clue what to expect. Does anyone know how much Fiji is in general to stay and travel around??? I am there for 25 days and hope to get around the main island and some of the smaller islands.
PLEASE PLEASE give me some guidance if you can
Well the first thing to do is Search on the site-all kinds of info.
Then go to http://www.southpacific.org/text/finding_fiji.html and buy the Moon Handbook to Fiji & read it cover to cover several times.
Fiji is an easy place to travel accommodation is plentiful food is cheap transit is never fast but always available.
My girlfriend and i went to Fiji last month and i can offer some general advice..
The main island is ok if you can get away from Nadi as soon as possible - that area in particular is pretty dirty and not nice. The Fiji experience allows you to hop on and hop off buses etc whenever you like and gives us an added bit of freedom.
The smaller islands: i presume by this you mean the Yasawas and the Manamucas? We booked on the Yaswas Flyer for a week in the yasawas and felt like we had been ripped off. After a couple of days at Coral View we left and ended up paying more to stay at Bounty Island which was beautiful.
Main advice is to research as much as you can and dont be fooled by the travel agents when you get there.. things are often not what they seem!
