So, you’ve booked that Fiji holiday and now all you can think about while you’re at work is throwing off the shackles of your office and setting off for a few weeks of sun, surf, sand and cocktails. Lucky you! To help you while away the weeks or months until that holiday comes around, here’s a list of things you absolutely must experience while you’re there…start counting down the days!
The waters around Fiji are pristine and sheltered by surrounding islands, which makes them perfect for snorkeling and checking out the range of beautiful marine life under the surface. With temperatures staying solidly above 25 degrees Celsius all year round, you can bet that a little splash in the sea will be just what the doctor ordered as well!
Visit a Village
Fijian villages are spread over many of the islands that make up the nation, which means that while Fiji is technically governed by a president, many of the rural villages still have chiefs and run semi-independently in a much more traditional way. Visiting one of these villages is a must to understand Fijian tribal culture, but remember to pay respect to the chief by taking off your hat in his presence.
