Singing tourists enjoy holiday with a difference

FOR a group of Australian and New Zealand tourists, spending their vacation at the Daku Resort in Savusavu is one that will go down in their history books.

Apart from the hospitality and the tranquil environment, the tourists had the opportunity to sing iTaukei gospel hymns and learn more of the local cultures and traditions.

On Thursday afternoon, The Fiji Times met the tourists who were enthusiastically singing an iTaukei hymn.

Choir director Rachel Hore said the tourists were from different backgrounds but all had a common interest in singing.

"We all came from different places in Australia and New Zealand to spend our vacation in Daku and through this singing session, we were able to know one another and formed a group," she said.

"The session has taught us how to sing in the iTaukei language and we really love the new experience. It's a bit challenging for some of the tourists but everyone is really enjoying every minute of it.

"Some of the locals assisted us on how to sing the hymns and for the tourists, this is more than just a vacation."
