Sunset from the pool in Fiji
If you're planning on visiting Fiji you can do it in one of 2 ways: 1. Book a set tour for a specified number of days and on a pre-determined number of islands, having the whole thing planned out for you or 2. you can get a flight, land in Nadi and see what happens from there. Although a little daunting I'd recommend the latter; its cheaper and if you get somewhere you don't want to be you can leave or likewise if you really like somewhere you can stay longer. As a starter when you land in Nadi airport your going to get harassed by people trying to book you into tours and plan your trip... they're all working on commission and can be a bit pushy. Be strong and walk through the airport there's a free phone and you can dial one of a number of hostels to pick you up. More often than not they'll pick you up for free but if not its only about $10 - $15 fjd

The Ferris Wheel from the abandoned town of Pripyat in the Chernobyl Dead Zone
Ukraine tends to be far from the beaten path, even for Eastern Europe; however if you can allocate the time its well worth the visit. Kiev, the capital, is a fantastic city with good night life. And you'll need a full day to venture north to Chernobyl, where the worst nuclear power plant disaster in history took place on April 26th, 1986.

Entering one of the very small holes leading to the Cu Chi War Tunnels
When visiting Ho Chi Minh City, be sure to consider taking a tour of the Cu Chi War Tunnels. It's an easy day trip (not even a full day) from the city, and an interesting way to learn about the Vietnam War. You'll be able to walk (or crawl) through a pitch black tunnel dug for the war. If you're claustrophobic be careful as the tunnel is pitch black and leaves barely enough room to move through on your feet. Your calves will ache when you make it to the end. You'll see remnants of bomb craters, weapons, vehicles, and ammunition used during the war. For a fee you can shoot some of the guns actually used during the war, although its quite expensive. You can also see examples of some of the types of brutal traps placed throughout the jungle during the war.
