    View of Nuku'alofa, Tonga

    Nuku'alofa Town is the capital of Tonga, sitting on a narrow isthmus facing the Pacific Ocean to the north, and the Fanga'uta Lagoon to the south. With a population of just 30,000 it is a quiet, sprawling and functional town with buses and internet cafes. It provides a window to a picturesque nation, where tradition and religion are paramount in everyday life. The most visited attraction is the Royal Palace in the heart of town.

    5 Saturday, August 12, 2023 Vava'u, Tonga 8:00 AM 5:00 PM
    View of Vava'u, Tonga

    Vava'u, and the other 40 odd islands that make up this stunningly beautiful group, is situated in the north of the Kingdom of the Tongan archipelago in the South Pacific. Despite now being easily accessible, it still remains off the beaten track of mass tourism. Neiafu, the tiny capital on Vava'u, is perched above the Port of Refuge Harbour, a delightful natural harbour regarded by many as one of the most beautiful in the world. With its year-round tropical climate, being remote and truly unspoiled, the result is crystal clear waters with visibility exceeding 30 m. Read more about Vava'u, Tonga

    7 Monday, August 14, 2023 Nadi, Fiji 7:00 AM 6:30 PM
    View of Nadi, Fiji

    Nadi, known as the 'gateway to Fiji', is the third largest centre in Fiji, on the island of Viti Levu. The local economy is based on sugar cane production and tourism. Nadi lives up to its reputation of 'the most often visited Fijian city' thanks to its international airport in the middle of town. Many head straight to Denaurau Island, just a matter of minutes away across a short bridge, that whisks you from the Third World into the First World, with its shopping complex at Port Denaurau.

    8 Tuesday, August 15, 2023 Suva, Fiji 7:00 AM 4:00 PM
    View of Suva, Fiji

    Suva is the capital and largest city of Fiji, perched on a hilly peninsula between Laucala Bay and Suva Harbour in the SE corner of the island of Viti Levu. It is a beautiful tropical city full of colour and diverse cultures. Although it is the only place in Fiji where you will see buildings taller than palm trees, local folk traditions such as fire walks, welcoming ceremonies, wood-carving and the fabrication of tree-bark cloth, remain strong. Hire a taxi for the day or take a tour and enjoy its tall modern buildings which are beautifully balanced by rich traditional colonial architecture. Read more about Suva, Fiji
