  • The must take with you list....

    Depending on how long you're going for you generally need no more than one large suit case for about a week. Singlets, shorts, hats and jandals is pretty much all you need. Swimming togs for guys and bikini's for girls. There are shops there that sell all these really cheap as well if you do forget something and its always nice to get something...

  • Cash!

    If you're heading out to the islands, it's very important to remember that there are no ATMs out there! And very, very few of the hotels accept credit cards. So, the only way to pay for things is either by cash or traveller's cheques - and you won't get a good exchange rate on the traveller's cheques! So be sure to make sure you have enough cash...

Shorts, shirts,...

  • Take your own scuba gear

    I would have loved to have dived in the beautiful clear waters around Fiji, but the cruise did not offer that facility unless you had brought your own gear, and there was at least one other person to buddy you. So, I was stuck with snorkelling.

  • Sunscreen

    Take lots of shorts, tanks, flip-flops, swim-suits and maybe a longer sleeved thin something in case you bake yourself. Hat and sunglasses are also a very good idea. I did wear a pair of jeans a couple of times on nights out, but only because I didn't have enough skirts. :) Take sunscreen as I burned myself while out out on a small island resort...

  • Packing List

    Backpack for day trips, large backpack / carry bag / small suitcase for rest of stuff. Fiji's climate is warm so light clothing is most suitable - shorts, t-shirts, singlet tops etc. A jumper may be useful for night time. Women going to villages need to have their shoulders and knee's covered, so bear this in mind when packing. Sulu's (sarong) are...

  • Packing List

    Guide books. I know a lot of people on here aren't a fan but for an out of the way place such as this, they're very handy. Mine was left in my first hotel room by an outward bound traveller with handy hints written in. The pre-internet version of VT, I suppose. All I knew about Fiji when I landed was: the airport's at Nadi, which is pronounced...

  • Packing List

    We brought one suitcase for the both of us. We stayed at only two hotels and didn't have to lug it around too much. August is the dry time of year and all we really wore were bathing suits, sarongs, shorts, hats and sunblock. If you plan on bringing a blow dryer (too humid, you shouldn't bother) bring a converter for the outlet. And anti-itch...

    A backpack is the easiest way to carry your things. As little as possible. Your swimming things, and a sula (sarong) for both men and women. Also a pair of walking sandals ie. Teva's.
