While in the South Pacific we thought we would check out prices of flights from Fiji to Vanuatu and then back to Fiji and we were nicely surprised. Air Vanuatu and Fiji Airways had flights for around $1100 AUD (800 USD) for three return tickets from Nadi to Port Vila.
With so many visitors to both Fiji and Vanuatu, we decided to do a quick visit connecting the two countries with a short flight seeing more of the South Pacific.
Leaving Nadi, aerial views over the Mamanuca Islands group will be on display and a great photography opportunity. Have that camera ready and impress your family back home with beautiful images. Leaving Vanuatu, great views of the Port will be on offer.
A quick 2-hour 10-minute flight and you are in another paradise. Fiji and Vanuatu are similar but yet so very very different. Colonised by the French they have left their mark on Vanuatu with pastries and bread to die for, along with amazing cheeses and beef. Colonised by Britain Fiji boasts beautiful Islands, friendly Fijian smiles and fantastic curries plus local Fijian specialities.
