Tourism Fiji has led a group of suppliers on a three-week tour to several U.S. cities to meet travel agents.
The main aim of this tour is to attract more visitors to the country.
The group included representatives from Vomo Island Resort, the Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort, the Castaway Island Resort, Yasawa Island Resort, Blue Lagoon Cruises, Outrigger Fiji and other top Fijian suppliers.
Musket Cove Resort sales & marketing manager – Alex Raicebe says most of the American guests are 40 years and above age.
Raicebe says the visitors have been around the world and they’re especially motivated now because of the strength of the U.S. dollar, which is basically twice as strong as the Fijian dollar.
Fiji welcomed about 61-thousand visitors from North America last year.
