Why Visit Fiji? Aug 05

Fiji, belonging to the Oceania group of islands in the South Pacific, consists of over 300 islands and is located about two-thirds of the distance from Hawaii to New Zealand. The Republic of the Fiji Islands is made up of many islands born of coral and volcanoes.  The two largest islands are Viti Levu and Vanua Levu, which are home to the vast majority of the inhabitants. Fijians and Indo-Fijians (whose ancestors were laborers brought to Fiji from India) compose most of the residents on these two prominent islands. Suva, the capital of Fiji, is located on Viti Levu. There is a wealth of history and culture in the islands, which are largely unspoiled by man.

British rule reigned in Fiji for about 100 years before Fiji declared its independence in 1970. English is one of the dominant languages spoken on the islands and the majority of the citizens practice Christianity.  Commerce is based on tourism, sugar, clothing, processed seafood, silver, limestone, gold, and oil, among other things.

The tropical climate of Fiji has created captivating lakes and waterfalls and intriguing rainforests. The rainy season occurs from November through April.  The months of May through October are considered the optimal times to visit the islands. However, one should keep in mind that travel and accommodation costs are increased during that time period.  June and July seem to be the peak months for tourist and that coincides with the highest rates.

Finding cheap accommodation in Croatia Feb 28

If you are looking for a new place to explore consider spending your vacation in Croatia which is rapidly becoming one of the most popular tropical spots in Europe. I absolutely loved the time that I spent there this past summer. They have many things to offer ranging in accommodations, dining, attractions and of course breathtaking sights.

I really enjoyed my accommodation in Croatia which made me feel as though I was royalty. The luxury villas found here may be a bit pricey but they are worth every dollar that I spent on it. I was given my own personal chef, personal driver and even a full maid service that was on call as I needed them. If you are on a budget there are less expensive options such as the cheap villas or the holiday villas. They each have something unique to offer and depending on your budget you may be lucky enough to get a room close to the water. I loved waking up in the morning and being able to look out my window at the sight of sandy beaches and crystal clear water. Since I love to swim and surf this was a great vacation choice for me.
