Tourists descending on Savusavu Town are always cheerfully welcomed by handicrafts and curio vendors.
Tourists last Saturday’s Sun Princess tour could not have picked a better day to boost business in the hidden paradise town.
A handicraft vendor, Helen Delaivoni, said she’d been in the business for three years and only when cruise ships arrived.
“I think it is fair sometimes, our goods have slow sales. There are a lot of elderly people coming in these cruise ships but our business does go well.”
Ms Delaivoni said most handicraft vendors sell at the airport daily but most of them only come out when tourists were in town.
Another vendor, Mana Rabici, said at times tourists preferred to buy other kinds of handicrafts.
“I have been operating my business for three years at the Savusavu Handicraft Centre and my business runs well when these cruise ships come into Savusavu.”
“I have always made use of tourist’s visits on cruise liners, collecting a good sum from sales.”
