Fiji is an island country in Melanesia. The country comprises an archipelago of more than 332 islands, of which 110 are permanently inhabited, and more than 500 islets. The two major islands are Viti Levu and Vanua Levu. The former contains Suva, the capital and largest city. The international airport is also in Suva.
Fiji’s culture is a rich mosaic of Indigenous Fijian, Indo-Fijian, Asian and European traditions. Fijian society has also evolved over the past century with the introduction of more recent traditions, such as Indian and Chinese, as well as heavy influences from Europe and Fiji’s Pacific neighbours – particularly Tonga and Samoa. Thus, the various cultures of Fiji have come together to create a unique multicultural national identity.
Fiji has a significant amount of tourism with the popular regions being Nadi, the Coral Coast, Denarau Island, and Mamanuca Islands. Fiji’s attraction is primarily its white sandy beaches and postcard perfect islands with all year round tropical weather.
