'Bula' for Fiji
Exquisite sand beaches, swaying palm trees, turquoise seas, impossibly blue skies, darting fish and pulsating coral reefs. After spending three weeks in Fiji, I found that all these stereotypes were, amazingly, true. But don't go all that way just for scenery. If what you crave is a pool with a swim-up bar and a beach with palm trees, there are picture-perfect places a lot closer. But if you have a sense of adventure and want to experience a culture totally different from home, Fiji is definitely worth the trip. It was the people of Fiji, not the beaches, who made my visit so memorable.
