Hello guys, you seem to kno ur stuff so we're hopin u can give us some tips n hints on our specific situation. I thought id left a similar post to this a few days ago under this name, entitled "2weeks in fiji" but cant find it now. If im an idiot and these qs hav been answered pls tel me! :) Warning:this is a longwinded little inquisition!!
BACKGROUND: We are heading to Fiji somewhere in Oct/November 2009 (by any rate we're likely to have left fiji Dec 01st at latest)
We are four 22-26 year old friends (female if that matters?), travellin the world, hittin fiji for a few weeks before South America. Among us we count 3 drivers, we're all tryin to squeeze the most out of our pennies, and out of our limited time. We want to see the big famous important things in the world, AND the lesser known things about places that the tourists dont tap into. We want to c as much as we can distance wise, yet we want to stay a while in certain places to soak it up a bit. Now u know a bit bout us!
QUESTIONS: What kinda weather can we expect at the time we're going. We've checked the net for general guide but its all a bit contradictory. We love sunny weather and heat so hoping we will catch good weather even if it is wet at times of the day. Do different parts of fiji hav different climes? All advice sooooooo appreciated!!
Will water activities stil be avail at the time we wil be there? We interested in surfing, diving, sailing, swimming, all that!
What is the approx cost of transport in fiji, how much will trains cost from place to place? What's the cheapest way to get around?
Where are the cheapest places to stay? We are not in the least bit fussy, but we wud prefer somewhere thats close enough to roads or rails that its feasibly possible to lug giant bags to and from our hostel. A bonus wud be location with decent food and in a decent loc with beach or town or activities nearby. Reviews on accom are so contradictory our heds are spinnin!!!
Any places/ activities/ fests /experiences u think we shud NOT miss?
Budget wise: What can we expct to pay at a minimum per week (of we do everythin as cheaply as poss) on:
TRAVEL (we wnt to c a good bit o the place, see above!)
ACTIVITIES like diving etc
Any other info or advice on any aspect of fiji is very very much appreciated!
THANKYOU SOOOOOOOOOO MUCH IN ADVANCE FOR ALL YOUR HELP! WE'RE THANKFUL FOR ANYYYYYTHING AT ALL U CAN TELL US!
LOVE AND KISSIES FROM THE GIRLS.XXXXXX
