What fun, a bit different, not what you would expect and definitely not a glitzy tourist excursion. But it's so much fun, slowly winding through the bush, villages, down the coast to the beach. Sometimes locals with their produce to take to market jump on and off, the local kids in the villages have a bit of fun with you and the train winds past their village. Think of this as a fun day out, and by going on this train ride you are helping out the locals that use the train and those that work on the train too. Don't over think it. If you want a first class train ride don't catch the Puffing Boto......actually you won't get that train in Fiji, if you want a bit of unglamerous fun and don't take yourself too seriously this trip is worth your while. Enjoy.
