Get intimate with Fiji

Kate Webster takes you aboard the Fiji Princess for an intimate escape in Fiji. Fiji is known as a flop and drop destination. White sandy beaches, shading palm trees and clear blue waters enhanced more by a relaxed warm vibe. It really is paradise. But what if you could flop and drop knowing you will wake the next morning, or from your afternoon snooze, to look at a new magical destination? That is the appeal of a cruise around the islands of Fiji. One day you can be anchored in a small cove sheltered by a rocky mysterious island, the next tendering ashore to a remote local village and school.

Stepping over the rubble of blackened stone choked by a creeping vine, a magical sensation tingles up my spine.  I am surrounded by 100 years of Cambodian Khmer history, captured in stone and strangled by nature.  Reflective of this country’s violent and bloody battle, here in the temples of Angkor, a battle continues. Now, it is the battle of human verse nature  as trees and vines swallow the temples.   The winner is nature as it takes back its space. Built during Khmer civilisation at its  height of power are the temples of Angkor.   Just moments outside of Siem Reap in an area of about 400 km² are hidden nearly 100
