Savusavu - Fiji Islands' Best-kept Secret

The thought of visiting Fiji should make anyone feels exhilarated with all that sun, sand and sea. Blessed with 333 tropical islands and home to some of the happiest people on Earth, nothing prepared me for the charm and warmth of the Fijians, much less the gorgeous sights and sound of the truly spectacular islands located in the heart of the South Pacific.

My itineraries included islands exploration – Savusavu, South Viti Levu Island, Sigotaka and Kuata Island. In this article, I’ve...

Chasing Southern Lights Tasmania JetBlogger Jensen Chua and Jetabout Holidays

Whenever the subject of Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights crops up, most people think of Norway, Iceland or the Arctic.  But with the sun’s 11-year solar cycle coming to an end, these nature wonders are fading and may not be seen as often for another decade.  Fortunately for us in Asia, the Southern Hemisphere has its own light show – the Aurora Australis or Southern Lights.
