Tui Tai Expeditions was recognised as one of the ‘25 Best Trips for 2009’ by National Geographic magazine

One of Fiji’s luxury adventure ships, ‘Tui Tai’, was featured on the renowned National Geographic Adventure magazine, reinforcing Fiji’s position among the world’s best tourist destinations.

Featured in the November issue of National Geographic Adventure (print and online), Tui Tai Expeditions was recognised as one of the ‘25 Best Trips for 2009’.

In compiling the select list, National Geographic scanned the globe to identify just 25 trips that are the “best new adventure travel tours in the world”.

Tui Tai’s feature titled ‘Live the Lost Island Life’ highlights its exceptional commitment to support the local people of northern Fiji.

“Tui Tai is the rare outfitter that goes deeper to engage with islanders and connect clients with local culture,” the publication said.

“And only Tui Tai pushes to the remote northern Fijian island nations of Rabi and Kioa, where Micronesians and Polynesians live in traditional villages, practice centuries-old dances, and hand-carve their canoes.”

Emphasising the successful humanitarian projects in remote villages, National Geographic remarked: “Tui Tai has forged relationships with the island communities, and its priorities have shifted to philanthropy—building schools and health clinics, and starting a scholarship fund for kids.”

Tui Tai co-founder Morika Young said to have the Tui Tai featured on National Geographic Adventure Magazine was very exciting.

“It is fantastic and we are thrilled that National Geographic selected our new 7-night cruise as one of the 25 Best New Trips for 2009,” Young said.

“The honour of this distinction belongs equally to all of our village partners; without whom our unique type of experience would not exist,” she said.

Interim Attorney-General and acting interim Tourism Minister Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum commended the efforts of the management of Tui Tai saying Fiji should be proud of such operators and local achievements.

He said for the luxury adventure ship to be featured on National Geographic was indeed a milestone - another testament that Fiji remained a unique world-class tourist destination.
