Garden of the Sleeping Giant:

The garden encompasses over 20hectares and showcases more than 2000 different types of orchids which includes some rare Fiji orchids. There are well designed paths and walkways to allow for a comfortable walk through the forest.
Viseisei village is in the district of Vuda (the origin) and is believed to be the first village to be set up by the first Fijian arrivals around 1500. Viseisei literally means “to disperse” as it is from here that other Fijian settlers dispersed and populated all other parts of Fiji as it is now to this day.It is important to observe Fijian protocols during your visit to the village. There is also a local village handicraft market for your souvenirs.
Nadi Market is always popular for locals selling and buying local fresh fruits, vegetables, root crops, fish and kava. The market is noisy, bustling and vibrant as locals haggle for the best deals. Take time to spot the kava section of the market and try a bowl of kava with the locals. Your guide will show you how to accept and drink kava. A “not to be missed” experience.
