Airport Adventures: Nadi Airport

by a traveller

We were approached by some Fijian dude who asked us a few details about ourselves. He claimed that he was paid by the airport to show backpackers a good time.

"Three of us Canadian guys going through the south pacific on our way to Australia. Flying with Air NewZealand we arrived shortly after midnight, a representive met us when we cleared customs. She took us to their office where we were able to dump our bags. Having to wait until the morning to catch a bus to our hostel we decided to explore the airport. We were approached by some Fijian dude who asked us a few details about ourselves. He claimed that he was paid by the airport to show backpackers a good time. He offered us a ride downtown free of charge to go check out some bars and firedancing. I thought bullshit and we kinda laughed at him but having the night to burn we thought "ah what the hell" and jumped in. As soon as we got out on the highway they cracked us all some nice cold beers. First, they took us to some barbeque where he seemed to know everybody and we stuffed our faces and drank more beers. They rolled a few joints of pure fijian bud and smoked them before heading to the bar. Got just pissed and later he actually had a couple prostitues called over for us which we rejected hah! They drove us back to the airport before morning just shitfaced and stoned out of our minds. I think I spent maybe 15 dollars US?? haha It was awesome. Grabbed our bags and went on our way. NADI airport is amazing!"
