My husband and I are travelling to Vanuatu soon and want to know the average cost per day that people have spent. We are not budget travelling this time, but interested to know the average daily cost please.
Hey! I served in the U.S Peace Corps in Fiji for two years. I have also returned the last two summers for some solo travel. This may sound a bit crazy but I highly doubt there is anyone in the U.S that knows more about traveling in Fiji than me. Ask away! I love talking about Fiji! I also speak Fijian! Not fluently but enough to get around no doubt....
I guess there will be a new South Pacific lonely planet guide book coming out dec 2016. I am hoping for a vast long term trip of the islands this winter....would that be about the best book for a guide? Thanks
We are looking at 8 days in Samoa at the end of October. This is getting towards the rainy season. Will rain stop us having fun?
I’ve checked the websites for Samoa’s climate (October is starting to get rainy), but what’s it like when you are there? i.e. is it UK rain (only 4mm a day, but low level mist, permanent grey skies and a general feeling of foreboding) or is it NZ rain (numbers look twice as big, but it’s over in 30 min then you have sun sun sun)?
Thanks for your thoughts…
my family and i are planning 10 days relaxing in Fiji as well as exploring around Nadi, i was just wondering how expensive is Fiji? and is it as beautiful as photos show? ive been looking at flights and the prices are quite reasonable as well as resorts and we are getting extremely close to booking :)
Will be in Yap next week. Anyone here still there or just returned from there within the last 2-3 months?
I am wondering if I should rent a car to check things out or if there are budget accommodations available? Or if everything is ridiculously expensive like here in Palau? Thank you.
You may laugh at me for asking: I was so stupid to lose my Canon LC-E12 camera charger in Fiji (for LPe12 battery). In Vanuatu I luckily found a kodak shop that has a universal charger, but I'm scared that I won't find an option in SI and or PNG (and really like my big camera and the beautiful places the South Pacific is able to show me).
I tried looking for other canon cameras with the same charger, but unfortunately the ones I found all have a thinner battery.
Online, I haven't found a shop…
