We have two young children and they lived the train ride. The kids also loved visiting the kindergarten. Also loved visiting the village where they got to play with the children. All in all a very good day.

We had a lovely ride into the town of Sigatoka on board the rattly old red train, but it gave us a good view of life in Fiji either side of the tracks. Seeing the children in the Kindergarten was interesting and cute. When you...More

The train slowly travels from Cuvu to Sigatoka township. The station is near the Shangri-La Hotel. It slowly travels through communities where children wait for the train to receive lollies from the travellers. Bring your own lollies to share with the kids, if not they...More
