Six programme producers of one of the large Chinese television broadcasters are in Fiji to shoot their show.

They are this week wrapping up the production of Fun Abroad which has been shot at different locations around Fiji.

The show will air its third season in November to over seven million viewers in Hong Kong alone and is also available in 14 countries in Asia, Oceania, Europe and America.

The television show through Kinton Global Enterprises and the assistance of Tour Managers Fiji aims to boost the visitor numbers into the country this year from Hong Kong and the greater Asia region.

The television station runs five free-to-air television channels and is one of two free-to-air terrestrial television broadcasters in Hong Kong.

Tour Managers (Fiji) Limited Business Development Manager Ioane Naivalurua said, “This is a project which we have done with one of our trade partners.”

“We believe that this complementary effort will be a big boost towards furthering the momentum for targeted Asia marketing carried out by us.”

Fun Abroad (three Days – two Nights) with its host Ms Toby Chan (Miss Hong Kong 2010) aims to give their viewers a taste of unforgettable travel experiences around the globe by introducing viewers not only to a countrys’s most interesting and most amusing attractions but also to their unique culture.

“The show also targets single travellers searching for adventure and Fiji has a lot to offer when it comes to adventures.

“The team has travelled to Beqa, Suva, Taveuni, Coral Coast and the western part of Fiji to capture the local sites, cultures, tastes and sounds of Fiji.”

Fun Abroad is also featured in all in-flight entertainment programmes for Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon.

“This itself is a big boost for the marketing arm of Fiji.”

The show has featured over 17 countries worldwide and with the motto ‘Better Fiji’ – Kinton Global Enterprises hopes this venture will definitely assist the tourism economy in Fiji.

Kinton Global Enterprises also wishes to acknowledge Film Fiji, National Trust Fiji and Tourism Fiji for their support toward this project.

Film locations include Suva City, Taveuni, Coral Coast, in Nadi, and Sabeto areas.

The team of producers returns to China on Thursday.
