Fijian smiles galore

THEY have visited many beautiful places around the world but Fiji is where their heart is.

And they will market Fiji to Israel because of the warm smiles, kind hearts and warm hospitality of the Fijian people.

An Israeli couple were blown away by the smiles of Fijians in the villages and islands they visited.

"We will do whatever we can to promote Fiji to Israel. We have been to many beautiful places in the world but nothing compares to Fiji," said 69-year-old Chanoch Nadler.

"When I entered Fiji, I felt a sense of belonging. It's like I have arrived home. There is something in common and I can feel it.

"We have started promoting Fiji on Facebook and a lot of our friends cannot wait to witness it. We have uploaded photos and we received a lot of comments."

He said they planned to approach the Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Tourism and the government to campaign for Fiji tourism.

He observed that there were hardly any Israeli tourists visiting Fiji.

He said this was because of the distance and the expensive airfare.

His wife Helen said they would return to Fiji soon.

The couple left Fiji last weekend to continue their tour around the world.
