Lying in the heart of the South Pacific, Fiji is the hub of Pacific travel. Here Melanesia mixes with Polynesia, ancient India with the Pacific, and tradition with the modern world in a unique blend. Of the 322 islands that make up the Fiji group, over 100 are inhabitated by a rich mixture of exuberant Melanesians, Indo-Fijians, Polynesians, Micronesians, Chinese and Europeans, each with a cuisine and culture of their own. Fiji's sun-drenched beaches, blue lagoons, panoramic open hillsides, lush rainforests, and dazzling reefs are truly magnificent. Even with a month at your disposal you'd barely scratch the surface of all there is to see and do.
