The next stop we went on was just down the road and it was to the garden of the sleeping giants, this cost $16 entry with complimentary juices and they were good I must say here you can spend as long as you wish just walking around or sitting and talking the scenery in as there is lots of places to sit along the way. They have the bigest orchid collection in Fiji and well as the woods/rainforest style part of the mountains and Lilly ponds it was a really nice place to walk around and take in some natural beauty.
Another option you could do whilst in the area of both the sleeping giants and the mud pools is do the zip line that is just over the river and in the same area so the price of the taxi wouldn't change much, I believe the zip line is $108 but I did see a sign for a 2 for 1 offer and you can do as many zips as you want you aren't limited to a certain number. This would be a good replacement to the temple we saw as it wasn't that good and I wouldn't recomend doing that.
The next thing we did was go to the temple this was about 30mins in the opposite direction into nadi town and cost us $5 entry and we could only take pics outside and that was only one view of it and couldn't go in any of the places in it as we wasn't that religion so a bit of waste of time more than anything, like I said I would skip this unless you really love temples.
After that we walking into the town had a look round the local market where the people had made things it was nice but nothing I was looking for they were all wooden items all had crafted and nice and amazing prices so cheap but not what I wanted I was looking for magnets, I found some in the souvenir shops but they were exspensive not if I wanted one I wouldn't mind paying $10 but when I want 3 that's $30 and that's £10 for magnets too much for me.
We had such a fun and interesting day doing lots of things all day we started at nine and got back for 3 and we had a good amount of time at everything but you could spend longer if you wish. We came back and went in the see and chilled on the beach till about 4:30ish and the girls were going back that night so they went for a shower and what not and then we had food watched the sun set and said bye. So nice to meet yet more lovely people on my trip <3
