Fiji Travel Tips
Be careful when you get to the airport in Nadi. People who work there will suggest some drivers to bring you to the town of your choice often at an inflated price. Instead you should take a bus. You will save yourself a lot of cash.

Village in Fiji:
Fiji relies on tourist dollars and it's the islands that bring in those tourist dollars. If people are going to fly all that way then maybe a visit to Bukuya, or a similar village, is worth consideration.
