Advantages Lovely garden and beautiful temple
Disadvantages Nadi is not that intetresting
My review is not only about this lovely garden but also a couple of other interesting places around Nadi in Fiji.
Incidentally Nadi is pronounced Nandi in Fijian
Unless you are interested in adrenalin seeking activities such as skidoos , banana boats, rafting down a river, swimming with sharks, scuba diving or deep sea fishing then there are limited things to do in the Nadi area. The most obvious experience is to sail and visit some of the smaller islands in either the Mamanuca or Yasawa island groups.
We decided we would take a trip to see a couple of the islands in the Mamanuca ( pronounced Mamanutha) group on one day and I’ll write about that in another review.
NEXT STOP -THE GARDENS OF THE SLEEPING GIANT
It was a lovely peaceful place to enjoy some truly beautiful orchids as well as water lilies and while we were walking around we also saw a number of different birds which were attracted to the tropical flowers on the bushes.The highlight for me was the beautiful orchids as I think they are simply stunning flowers. The plants themselves are not that attractive but the flowers have to be some of the loveliest ones you can find. There are about two thousand different ones in this collection which was Raymond Burr’s private collection at one time. This is reputedly the world largest collection but i am not convinced that there were more orchids here than there are in the Singapore Botanic Gardens, maybe it is the world’s largest private collection.
