    Default Fiji, Vanuatu and New Caledonia. Anyone been?

    So my husband and I are finally going on our honeymoon on an 11 night cruise around the pacific islands. We have two excursions booked one being a scenic drive/aquarium visit and the other a horse back trail ride through a rainforest and plantation.

    But we are also interested in doing our own sightseeing. So pretty much asking if anyone has been or if they have seen/heard of any "must see" things for these locations?

    Thanks in advance

    Never been to any of them - it's hard to schedule in a trip between anti-government uprisings. But practically everyone I know has been and you will have an awesome time so long as you steer clear of guys in combat gear.

    Yes this was one of the main reasons why we chose the cruise! I'm looking forward to seeing the French influences there. Someone told me about a little French pattisserie YUMMMY!

    I have also discovered that there is a Hard Rock Cafe. Yeah I know it has nothing to do with Fiji culture but I've always dreamed of going to one ever since seeing Con Air!


    I think we will be hiring a moped and do our sightseeing that way. I know I want to see some traditional dancing and ceremonies so I'll be researching where I can do that.

    Photo's for McJag... I think I can manage that!
