South Pacific

A background question -- who are the leaders in South Pacific Tourism and in your opinion are they doing a good job of promoting independent travel?

Are there regional policies highlighting ecotourism and responsible travel?

These are inspiring examples of government sites!

David, could you share some personal background? When did you first travel to the South Pacific? What stimulated your interest in documenting tourism in the region?

David, can you tell us more about Fiji and Tahiti in terms of environmental awareness and attention to sustainability? Also, what should eco-minded travelers know before they buy their ticket?
