The dynamic city of Lautoka is the main hub for Fiji’s sugarcane industry, which in the early 20th century attracted a significant number of Indian immigrants and endowed the region with a distinct ethnic character. A terrific example is the highly ornate 1926 Sri Siva Subramaniya Temple, the Southern Hemisphere’s largest Hindu temple and a highly photogenic cacophony of vivid colors. You’ll be enchanted by the Garden of the Sleeping Giant, where actor Raymond Burr of Perry Mason fame gathered over 2,000 varieties of orchids. Inhale the fragrant air as you stroll on a canopied boardwalk past bubbling fountains and lily ponds where exotic frogs sun themselves. The Koroyanitu National Heritage Park provides excellent hiking, with paths guiding you through a luxuriantly green rainforest on the way to a splashing waterfall. At the Sabeto Hot Springs, which locals believe have therapeutic properties, sink into a mud bath packed with revitalizing minerals or into warm waters rich in sulfur. The Sabeto Village Cultural Exhibition will immerse you into the fascinating local customs, including a welcome kava ceremony. Sip from this earthy beverage, the national drink of Fiji, while watching a rousing performance of traditional song and dance.
At SeaDream, our experience was great in the lap of nature (at sea). The hospitality, courtesy and responsibility was at its height... flowing throughout the voyage. Really a memorable experience!! Mitu & Harjit SinghMumbai, India
We enjoyed every minute of our "yacht adventure" and it really is impressive to be addressed by name from the moment we boarded! [...] The crew is really first rate and didn't miss a beat in providing the best service I've ever experienced. Dale WhiteCamarillo, California
