My Insights into Fiji

Since Fiji Airways flies from LAX (Los Angeles) on a brand new A330, I thought with more people having an opportunity to visit I would offer some of my insights for travelers from my last trip.

1. In Fiji, Bula is the word.

2. Bula is a Fijian word that means “life.” It is also a word used for hello, goodbye, good morning.

3. Fiji drives on the left side of the road.

4. Fiji has a huge Indo-Fijian population.

5. Look for the “Red Flags” (in a good way).

6. Drink up with Fiji rum.

7. Kava ceremonies.

8. Fiji is a socially conservative country.

9. Understand the importance of Fijian village life.

10. No tipping in Fiji.
