Kids create chaos when it comes to family holidays, and it can be hard to find activities to cater to everyone when you’ve got a wide age range to consider. It’s one reason our Reef Endeavour cruise is so popular, because we welcome kids from age 5 years up on board and keep them entertained with plenty to do and see. If you still want some extra peace of mind and practical insights into taking the kids overseas to Fiji, then check out this article on Little Nomads. The Little Nomads site has hints and checklists to help minimise the stress of travelling with children, and their advice for a family holiday to Fiji is no exception. We’ve picked this blog article with its top ten tips on taking the kids to the tropical paradise of Fiji. It’s put together by Simon, the partner of Little Nomads’ blogger Debra. You can also check out Debra’s three articles describing their family’s trip to Fiji last year. This couple know how to organise a family holiday too – they have five children to take into account!
The Virtual Tourist is dedicated to the practical issues of travelling: security concerns, places to avoid, maps of the most popular beaches, restaurants, nightlife and more importantly, where to get the coldest beers. Members to the site can post reviews and tips from their time in a country. There’s plenty of accumulated knowledge here to help you prepare for an incredible time in Fiji.
Check out this series of articles on Fiji, starting with the places you’ll want to avoid. Written by David Stanley, a prolific travel writer and author of a number of guidebooks on the South Pacific, there’s plenty of nuggets of wisdom. For example, a lot of the tourism information centres are commercial, so your friendly adviser may have an agenda when recommending places to go and things to do. Just one reason to do some research online before you jet off on your Fiji getaway.
