Jane has kindly given us some of her tips for a honeymoon to this destination, so if you are stuck for ideas, read on! And thank you Jane for your advice!
For our honeymoon we chose to skip the crowd and went to the northern island Vanua Levu, which many people refer as “the real Fiji”. First we rented a house outside of the small town Savusavu, The Pod House at Fiji Beach Shacks. What a lovely stay! It was just us, the sun and the sea and we enjoyed every second of it.
On our way back to Sweden we had a few days in Hong Kong. A cool town! We went for shopping, exploring and nice meals with stunning views. Here are all our tips:
1: ALWAYS put your most valuable stuff that you really CAN’T live without in the carry on luggage. We lost our bags for 8 days due to the mishap in London (actually our flight out from Sweden was 2,5 hours delayed, so we missed our connection)… In our bags were for example some camera gear for UW-photos (and therefore we missed some of the best shots under water on the first dives where we couldn’t bring the camera gear down), chargers, clothes (of course) etc.
2: Explore! Don’t be afraid to take the more unknown tracks! Fijans are extremely friendly and we never felt unsafe anywhere.
4: Take some time. If we were to redo our trip, we would have taken some extra days and would have moved around a bit more.
Number 1: Don’t miss the fantastic marina in Kawloon, with the stunning view over Hong Kong island in the sunset.
Number 2: Visit roof top restaurants and bars – totally worth it!
Number 3: Don’t go shopping before you go to Hong Kong – you can buy most everything.
