Fiji is so much more than its stunning beaches; its vibrant cultures, rich traditions, lush rainforests, and, above all, genuinely welcoming and friendly people make it an ideal destination. Famed for its high-quality hospitality, Fiji is a very happy and relaxed place; you will feel this as soon as you arrive.  Villagers stop what they are doing to wave and smile broadly when tourists pass by, and the genuinely warm welcoming shouts of “Bula” feel like a verbal embrace. Fijians take pleasure in making visitors feel wanted and appreciated. Fiji simply loves making everyone happy.
