We've been talking about going to Fiji for years, and have looked at other books, but this book trumps them all. It's very thorough, with excellent descriptions that make us wish we could pack our bags and go today. Author David Stanley obviously loves Fiji, and his passion comes through in his writing. We also appreciate the way he doesn't sugar coat the less than perfect. This seems like a book you can really trust. And the history sprinkled throughout 'great stories of Capt. Bligh, for instance', the interesting boxes full of fun information, and the very useable maps make it easy to get educated in all things Fijian. We also love the beginning section with beautiful color photography. It would be nice if all photos could be in color, but we'd happily trade the excellent info in the book for color pictures. This book provided us with our new dream adventure vacation: A stay on the Yasawa Islands, where there are no motorized land vehicles or roads. You can stay in a thatched 'bure' and make a vacation exploring the island chain via a catamaran line that offers a kind of 'Eurail Pass' for island hoppers. Who knew such a place still exists?!
My wife and I have been to Fiji several times. We are planning a trip for next summer and just purchased David Stanley's 8th edtion of the Fiji Handbook. It is by far the best of the travel handbooks out there. Clear, easy to read maps, color pictures,and updated internet resources. Based on the resorts I have been to the recommendations are right on!
I picked this book since it seemed more current than the other e-book choices. The information was helpful, but very limited for the places we visited - Nadi and Taveuni. You probably will get better information on local sites and transportation from the locals. However, it was a good start, and fortunately our taxi driver from the airport in Nadi gave us good tips on transportation. Although meters are used by taxis from the airport to local hotels, most other taxi fares are negotiated upon arrive. Tripadvisor and google searches provided more information on local touring information. Book was most helpful for lodgings and less so for dining.
i got the 2007 fiji moon and loved it. i used different colored post it notes to mark my places, and the book was loaded. the layout was easy to follow along as we drove/rode/flew, and the poor thing is a bit tattered after 3 weeks of daily use, we never left home without it.
Im soo sory i was gone so long i hate random vacatitions to nowhere
*comes sailing thru the air* cheese!!
