Fiji is a Melanesian Island country in the Pacific Ocean. It lies about two-thirds of the way from Hawaii to New Zealand and consists of an archipelago that includes 332 islands. Only a few of these islands is big enough to hold and sustain civilization. Of all Fijian islands, approximately 220 are uninhabited.
Interesting fact: Fiji straddles the 180 degree longitude line. The international date line passes through east of Fiji, placing the entire archipelago in one time zone and Fiji “ahead in time” from the rest of the world.
Indigenous Fijian culture and tradition is very vibrant and present in the day to day life. You can easily spot the multicultural influence from the Indian and Chinse cultures. English is a commonly understood as well as Fijian and Hindi.
It’s a beautiful destination.
