This week we visit:Fiji
Fiji is pretty much heaven on earth and the last thing you want to do when visiting it is have to worry about such mundane matters as whether your wallet is safe and whether your phone will get reception. That is why we have this little Fiji travel safety guide for you to read and remember.
The first thing to remember is that Fiji is primarily a tourist country and every tourist-heavy country has its fair share of pickpockets and petty crimes. This is true for Fiji as well. This is why you should always make sure you have your valuables in sight and that you never leave them unattended. If you have a safe in your hotel, use it. In Suva, there have been cases of purse snatching on mopeds, so be extra careful while in the area.
Fiji is also famous for its water sports and activities. Of course, there are plenty of bigger or smaller places that offer all kinds of potentially dangerous activities and it is crucial that you check them in advance. Make sure they are licensed and insured and make sure that their equipment is up to date, especially if you plan on doing something that might turn out to be very dangerous.
You should also remember that many smaller roads are in poor condition and that phone coverage is not great everywhere. These are some things to keep in mind.
Other than that, enjoy yourself!
