Viti Levu Vacation Packages
Viti Levu is situated about 35 miles (56 kilometers) northwest of Suva, the country's capital, and approximately 10 miles (16 kilometers) south of Fiji.
Viti Levu isn't the only place in Fiji worth seeing; visitors with plenty of time should also rent a vehicle and set off to explore the charms of the nearby countryside, towns and cities. Vunindawa, is 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the west, while Nabukavesi is located 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the northwest.
Step back in time during your stay in the area. Take the time to visit one of the traditional villages for which this part of the world is known. Houses of the holy are often great windows into a community's heart and soul. The temples throughout Fiji are certainly no exception.
Exploring new destinations can bring out the daredevil in travelers. If you're up for some high-altitude thrills, try parasailing. There are times when one of the most effective ways to see a place is by tapping into the expertise of locals. This region offers some very informative guided nature walks.
Often, the most cherished travel memories are found in a region's eateries. You will see that sweet potato and coconut are common elements of local meals. Typical meals are kokodo (marinated raw fish) and palusami (steamed meat with coconut and taro leaves), but naturally there are many other tasty meal options to choose from. Those who who are not quite satisfied, should try mixed rootcrops dessert, a lovely way to finish your Fiji culinary experience. For those who enjoy a nice cold beer or two, try some Fiji Taki Beer. It's one of the popular drinks in Fiji. And to try a drink that is authentic try Bounty White Rum, a popular spirit. Don't forget, regardless of what time it is, Fiji is a good place to ask for fresh tropical fruit juice.
When the time comes to head back to the familiarity of home, you'll be bidding Viti Levu a fond and teary Ni sa moce (farewell).
