Fiji has over 300 islands in its archipelago, each fringed with coral reefs and lapped by warm azure waters - the diving and snorkelling are superb. Amid its wealth of natural beauty, Fiji's true magic lies in its people and the fascinating blend of their diverse cultures. Fiji is an interesting blend of Melanesian, Polynesian, Micronesian, Indian, Chinese and European influences. For nearly 50 years, until the military coup of 1987 and the Indian emigration that followed it, the indigenous people of Fiji represented an ethnic minority in their own land.

Fiji Time

Thu, 6 Nov 2014 | By kevin | Views [41]

Fiji Time. To the arriving tourist it's a term that promises everything she'd want in her tropical vacation: relaxation, an easy pace, going with the flow. To the local it's a mantra, an excuse, steeped in the history of a kava bowl, to abide by ... Read more >
