The best way to embrace Fiji is in Suva, where you will get familiar with the culture and people of Fiji. During this week we will explain the do’s and don’ts regarding safety and transport. Various crafts give Fiji a unique identity that along with traditional etiquette and local architecture tells a story of culture and its evolution over time. You will be invited to join a kava ceremony during your stay. After the formalities, this is a wonderful way to make new friends and learn a little more about their country. Dig a little deeper and see what you can discover! Visit the Fijian markets, attend a weaving class, go on a tour in the sports stadium, learn Fijian language and cooking, and get to know you about your projects.
