We will be in Vila via cruise for only about 7 hours. We'd like to get to the Cascade Falls by public transport, and wondered what else there'd be for us to take in in such a short time. In Vietnam we could hire a driver for a period of time at an agreed price, and they'd take us to wherever we wanted. Would this be possible here, and where would be the best place to find a driver. We don't want to travel around with cruise tours as we prefer to be independent. usually we are backpackers, but had a bad health year this year and needed a more relaxing way to travel, as the travel bug didn't go away, and a brilliant cheap lastminute cruise fare came up...sooooo away we go!
We'd like advice as to similar in Noumea as we are only there about 8 hours.
What are the must do's?
