A Fiji Must: Garden of the Sleeping Giant

Upon planning my trip to Fiji, I knew for sure that I wanted to do a sailing trip and visit The Garden of the Sleeping Giant. I had read that it was one of the top things to do in Nadi. The garden has over 2,000 varieties of Asian orchids and Cattleya hybrids. It’s only $18 FJD ($8 USD / $11 AUD) to enter, and well worth it! The website calls it “one of the best kept horticultural secrets in the whole of the South Pacific,” and I’d have to agree — not that I actually have any experience with horticultural secrets, but it was beautiful, so whatever ;)!

You start by walking through their huge collection of orchids. I’ve never seen so many different kinds!

Next, you walk on a boardwalk through the Fijian jungle. It was beautiful to see so many native Fijian plants. It was HOT and so humid though so be prepared for that.
