The nation of Fiji is made up of over three hundred islands in the middle of the South Pacific Ocean. The warm tropical climate, fascinating culture and stunning scenery make Fiji one of the world’s top tourism destinations. Fiji travel is becoming more and more affordable thanks to an increase in international flights that land in the country’s Nadi International Airport. Here are just a few of the most popular Fiji attractions for tourists from around the world:
Garden of the Sleeping Giant: This incredible garden is located in the city of Nadi, on the island of Viti Levu. The space was originally owned and maintained by the actor Raymond Burr. Today the Garden of the Sleeping Giant is a popular tourism attraction that boasts over twenty hectares of carefully manicured flowers. The main species to see are the incredible orchids that come in a range of bright colors and the calm reflective pools full of floating lilies. Travelers who are in Nadi should be sure to stop at this attraction to appreciate the beauty and effort that goes into maintaining a botanical garden of this caliber.
Fiji Museum: In the Fijian capital of Suva visitors will find the Fiji Museum. There are few museums in the island nation but this one is quite extensive and offers visitors from around the world a chance to better understand the history and culture of the Fijian people. The majority of the exhibits are artifacts used by the local people for dress, food preparation or battle. Many of these artifacts are over three thousand years old yet remain incredibly well preserved. The Fiji Museum is closely situated by the larger Fiji hotels in the capital city of Suva.
Tavoro Waterfalls: These incredible waterfalls are located on the island of Taveuni. Travelers will need to walk in order to access the falls but the scenery along the way is beautiful and certainly worth the trip. The first of the majestic waterfalls is a mere fifteen minute walk along the path. After an additional ten minutes visitors will stumble across the even more picturesque waterfall and then eventually the final of the three. There are amazing views to be had from the Tavoro Waterfalls and also a fun chance to swim in pools of water beneath the walls. Children and adults alike will love this attraction in Fiji.
These attractions are just a few of the most popular tourism destinations on the Fijian islands.
