    A friend & I are planning on traveling to Fiji to explore & island hop for the summer. Any tips? Cheap extended stay/camping/hostels? Thanks

    I went to Fiji with a back pack and I still recall it as my best holiday ever. My advise, stay away from the resorts and don't pre-plan your trip too much. We only booked the first two nights in Nandi at a backpacker place and asked around where the best spots are. We then decided to buy a one week boat pass for the Yasawas and hopped of the boat at the first island. Asking other backpackers on the boat or on the islands where they liked it and where not is a great way of finding the good spots. I loved Manta Ray and the very north part of the islands. The second week back on Vita Levu we then hired a 4WD and drove from Nandi to Suva through the middle of the island, without sat nav. Spectacular and such a great way of meeting locals, asking them for the way, they don't see tourists very often. Must see in Suva is the Museum! Another must do is the Beqa Diving experience with Bull Sharks at the Coal Coast! They research the sharks since 20 years and dive with them regularly. You will face bull shakes without being in a cage, thrilling as it can get! Hope that helps! almost 8 years ago
