I visited Fiji in 2001, back then the Queen's/King's highway circling Viti Levu was by far the best non-urban road I came across except for a sectionsomewhere north of Suva which wasn't sealed.

The roads in interior Viti Levu were mostly dirt tracks while the road from the airfield on Ovelau island to the town of Levuka was quite badly potholed in places but perfectly useable with care.

Did you visit Vanua Levu too? It's hard to find pics from there unfortunately

What do you think about the pics I posted? They are taken in 2010, do you see Viti Levu much changed from when you went in 2001 or it looks still the same?
