Fiji is situated in the warmth of Pacific Ocean making it the best tropical island for vacation in the South Pacific. Fiji is surely the essence of a tropical island paradise. White sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, unlimited adventures, personal fulfillment, and a variety of things to do and see that will appeal to the most discerning traveler.
It consists of 333 islands, of which approximately 110 are inhabited by different groups of people. Viti Levu and Vanua Levu are the 2 larger islands. The population of Fiji is close to 1 million. Fiji became independent in 1970.
When to visit
The best time for visiting Fiji would be between May and November (Temperature ~ 21-28 degrees). This is the ‘winter’ season, and though still deliciously warm and tropical, it is not as humid as the hotter, wetter summer months from December to April (Temperature ~ 23-31 degrees). However, Fiji is beautiful all year round – it’s just that there is more chance for some tropical rain during summer. But it is the tropical rain that makes Fiji such a beautiful paradise!
Fiji is rich in forest, mineral, and marine resources. Sugar and Tourism industries are the 2 main sources of economy. The population mostly consists of native Fijians and Indo-Fijians. While Fijians are mainly Christians, Indo-Fijians are mostly Hindus and Muslims. Although the people often use their mother tongue to communicate, English is the main medium of communication and it is used in education, commerce and court.
Being a multicultural nation, Fiji culture is a mixture of indigenous, Indian, and European cultures. Meke is the traditional Fijian dance. Rugby is considered to be the most famous sport here. Transportation is quite easy by taxi, bus, or private vehicles. The currency used is Fijian Dollar (FJD$). Fiji Food is one of the best you would ever taste!
Fiji is a diverse land with different people, rich culture and beautiful landscapes. Visit the welcoming villages around Fiji Islands, and experience the sustainable Island style living or immerse yourself in the unique, intriguing culture and history.
And above all, the most precious gem; dangerously friendly – smiling, generous, sharing, caring, relaxed residents, the indigenous Fijians, who greet you with the truly balmy “Bula” (Hello).
