The US, Canada and European Union are faraway lands for Australia. But, at the same time, people from the Down Under have other places close by to explore which the aforementioned nations cannot travel to easily.
After all, Indonesia, Singapore, the Philippines, Thailand, Hawaii Islands and others are easily accessible from Australia and people from the country are making good use of it.
Tom Walley, head of leisure travel for the Flight Centre Travel Group, was quoted by Traveller as saying that they have witnessed a 42 percent growth to New Caledonia and other destinations, which are most popular year-round, such as New Zealand, Bali, Singapore, Thailand, Fiji, and Vanuatu.
But Fiji, rated as Australia’s favourite Pacific neighbour, the one of the Australia loved haunts. The archipelago offers coral filled waters, turquoise, lengthy stretches of sand and amazing sunsets and takes less than four hours to reach in a flight from Sydney and about five hours from Melbourne.
But more than that, it is its people, considered the friendliest on earth, that has Australians returning to the islands repeatedly.
Here, Aussies can visit a village to watch how Fijians live, go to Sobeto Mud Springs for a mud bath, do a cave safari operated off road by Sigatoka River Safari. A traditional bobo massage is the best way to round it off.
Some of the best places to stay in are Momi Bay Fiji Resort, Kokomo, Sheraton Tokoriki, which was reopened in February, the Hilton Fiji, the Koro Beach Club; for adults and so on.
If flying from Sydney, one can make board Fiji Airways, Jetstar or Virgin Australia and head to Nadi. Fiji Airways also operates from Adelaide, Brisbane and Sydney to Suva once a week. July to October is the best time to visit as the weather is dry and days are sunny.
