Fiji is one of the most popular destinations visited by New Zealanders on holiday; so where better to take our current travel and tourism students on a cultural educational overseas experience than Fiji?
The trip was booked through STA Travel, with Feejee Experience offering us an insight into the ‘real’ Fiji. The students swam, hiked, sand-boarded, soaked in mud pools and hung out on beautiful beaches, and, through the variety of activities, learnt about the Fijian way of life. A highlight of the trip was taking part in a sevusevu ceremony (meeting and greeting visitors) in a local village, where students took part in the kava offering, ate local delicacies and danced.
Feejee Experience gave us a fantastic example of how, as tourists and future tourism industry employees, we can help support local communities without damaging the environment.
