We had a lovely visit to the village and enjoyed what we saw. Kava making, firelighting, dancing by the ladies and young men and the water music.

It was an unexpected surprise to watch the ladies of the Cultural Centre make the sounds they made with the water. You could hear the difference just by changing their action and it was lovely to see the younger generation being taught this magical skill

We visited this Experience. The village was well presented and gave us a great view into the activities of village life in Vanuatu. The ladies made amazing sounds at the water music pool. Well worth the trip. Very friendly people.
