Moon Fiji Coming Soon

Moon Fiji /The 8th edition of Moon Fiji is about to go to press and will be available in bookstores by late August 2007. You can already pre-order the book through Amazon.com.

Moon Fiji has been completely redesigned since the 7th edition in September 2004. The introductory material has been moved to new Background and Essentials chapters at the back of the book. Background was updated with an account of the recent military coup in Fiji, and there's a new “Tips for Travelers” section in Essentials with information for those with special interests or needs.

A new “blue section” in the front of Moon Fiji includes a five-page Discover Fiji essay with color photos. Then there's The Lay of the Land with summaries of Fiji's nine regions, Planning Your Trip with advice on when to go and what to take, and Explore Fiji with two specific 14-day itineraries titled “The Best of Fiji” and “Island-Hopper Special”. Details of sports and recreation, nature reserves, and culture are also included in the blue section.

All of the practical information throughout the book has been re-researched and rewritten. New resorts in the Mamanuca Group such as Funky Fish Beach, Walu Beach, Likuliku Lagoon, and Amunuca Island are included for the first time. I've also provided a report on the new Marriott and InterContinental projects south of Nadi, and there's a new map of Denarau Island.

Moon Fiji's length has grown from 356 pages in the 7th edition to 385 pages not counting the index in the 8th. I think you'll find it worth the US$12.89 currently being charged for advance orders by Amazon.com (the bookstore price will be US$19.95). Moon Fiji was the original travel guide to Fiji, first published as Finding Fiji in 1985. A summary of the book's history is on All Editions of Fiji.

UPDATE: The 9th edition of Moon Fiji was published in 2011. For more information, visit Moon Fiji.
