    Its amazing how traveling around Asia is like traveling in Europe with so many cheap airlines. Fiji is a bit far though, not so easy to get to, but I have many friends who went there and they told me its amazing! Nice post describing the different destinations. May I ask if the hotels you mentioned organize for their guests means of travel from island to island? I am looking at different travel agencies to try to organize it but its hard. This one really helped, at least for me…. Travel Republic reviews
