Fiji Islands are famous for the kindness of Fijians who have been voted by several travel magazines as the world’s kindest people. They are really nice people, smiling and waiting for you on their island playing the guitar and singing and not just for your money because they are like that.
The Cost of Island Hopping
Fiji is an expensive country to travel around – even for travelers who are budget-savvy. If you want to island hop to Fiji’s outer islands, there are typically only a handful of backpacker resorts to stay at per island.
While many of these resorts lure travelers in with low room and dorm bed rates, you need to factor in the price of mandatory meal plans, activities, and the cost of getting to the remote island. Boat rides to the Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands are notoriously expensive, and many resorts require you to book transport through them.
