Fiji: Fiji Water:
|Fiji Water is about 15 minutes from where I live. The nearest real town is Tavua to the South or Raki Raki to the north. A lot of people live around the Fiji Water land and in between those two towns.|
Fiji: Any suggestions please!!:
|What sort of work are you happy to do? There's plenty of skilled work available but you need to be in the local scene I can give you some people to talk to but better to sort it out once you are here to be honest.|
Fiji: Working & Living in Fiji or Vanuatu:
|You should have no problem getting a permit here in Fiji. Mine took 2 weeks to come through. It's easy. Life here isn't necessarily easy but getting a work permit is.|
Fiji: Moving in August:
|You need to understand what Fiji is like. Fijians and Indians are basically dishonest and corrupt to a western mind. Glorias reply is indicative of someone who shouldn't be in Fiji as they want it to be different. You WILL get ripped off all the time just because you are white and this can drive you nuts. You learn to cope with it by making local friends and getting them to buy y ou stuff etc. Avoid renting if u r staying for a while and buy something as being a tenant will drive u mad unless you can find some ex pat landlords.|
Fiji: Fiji: Brutally Boring:
|Well Suva is hardly representative of Fiji. But if you are looking for a Western lifestyle don;t go to a third world country. I hate Suva because it is too urbanised.
Real Fiji is nice if you like that sort of thing. I love it. Once you settle into a smaller town and stop getting ripped off all the time it is a wonderful place. You have to learn that hindu and muslim culture here is very corrupt and you get taken advantage of at every opportunity but once you make that a game to play it can be fun.
But Suva is a hole, no doubt about that.|
Fiji: Vehicle aircon servicing:
|Does anybody know a decent vehicle aircon place in the western division. Asko motors have been expensive and useless??|
