Over one thousand tourists arrived on a cruise ship at the Suva Port this morning and explored the Capital city.
The ship is transiting through the country and this gave an opportunity for many tourists to meet the locals, buy various handicrafts, and go on bus rides
Ray Cook from Australia says it’s good to see that Fiji is becoming a modern country with all its infrastructural developments.
“Just going for a walk, stretching the legs and just doing a little bit of shopping and maybe have a beer with lunch here but by all accounts it’s becoming a modern city and a good place for anyone going on holiday.”
Vicky Mac says they’ve made rounds around the market and are becoming fond to the friendly local faces.
“It’s been very interesting and really good, there’s friendly people and everyone’s saying Bula.”
Meanwhile, many handicrafts business owners say tourists have been buying a lot souvenirs since this morning and this has boosted their income for the day.
