In a previous post, I shared 14 safety tips for solo female travellers. In this post I share six tips to help you stay safe while driving abroad.
While you may think the best way to see the Fijian islands is by boat, there’s a very good reason why you should take a road trip along Fiji’s Coral Coast, especially if you’re staying at one of the main resort towns on Viti Levu. If you truly want to immerse yourself in Fiji culture, visit hidden gems and see stunning coastal scenery, then getting off the resort and taking a road trip along Fiji’s Coral Coast is a must do experience.
If you’re planning on going on a road trip in Fiji, you have a few transportation options to choose from depending on your budget, trip duration, where you’re travelling, how many stops you plan to make along the route and how much you want to drive. Of course, you could book a tour to save you the hassle of driving and planning your route and experiences on your journey, but if you prefer the freedom of driving, it’s better to be prepared and to know what to expect before you go. So below are some useful tips for driving in Fiji, plus renting a vehicle, hiring a taxi or using public buses or private coaches.
La Mesa del Junquillo is a plateau that rises 869 metres between two reservoirs (Siberio & Parralillo). The top is surrounded by several man-made caves for rooms and storage. The view of the Tejeda Caldera from the top of the plateau are stunning.
A guided self-drive tour – or self-drive for short – is a great way to see and experience a new destination. There are many reasons why some people choose to explore countries and even continents this way. But is a self-drive right for you?
Unlike an escorted tour, on a guided self-drive tour, there is no guide in the traditional sense of the word. Planning your route, arranging accommodations, a vehicle and creating an itinerary is done for you but you have the flexibility to stop when and where you want for as long as you want, secure in the knowledge you have somewhere to stay at the end of each day.
