WHAT TO EXPECT
Inland from Sigatoka, is the area known as "The Salad Bowl". This fertile valley is dotted with small productive farms and market gardens, supplying much of VitiLevu with fresh produce.
There are dozens of small villages along the banks of the Sigatoka river...many of these are visited by our tour, if you want to get a feel for what Fijian village life is like.
Once you get away from the narrow tourism corridor of the Coral Coast and head inland, you start to see how Fijians really live. And for those people used to a well-developed country such as the US, NZ or Australia, it can come as a bit of a shock. Life is hard, and money is tight for these people. They are subsistence farmers, and rely on selling excess products in the markets, so they can buy the necessities of life.
