    Fiji is lovely and safe place to be, and if you're staying in a Fiji all inclusive resort then you really dont need to worry much about anything.

    Regarding customs and traditions, yes there are important over there, especially in the countryside where villagers are more conservative.

    If you do plan to visit a village, please dont wear tank tops, mini-shorts and that kind of clothing wear as it's disrespectful.

    Other than that, you can dress casually for the most part since Fiji is hot and humid most of the year, and so people dont really go around in suits or formal dress.

    been to Fiji

    last year, I took my family to Fiji for the first time and we stayed on the main island of Fiji and had a blast! The main island of Fiji is very touristy so if you're a first timer you won't feel too out of place here. During our stay there we also took a trip to Castaway Island (just off the coast from Nandi), where we stayed in traditional lofts for 3 days. I really recommend this side trip here as the island is beautiful with a lovely scent of the tropics:)

    What good advice. I'd love to hear how the trip went. I am thinking about starting to plan a trip to Fiji. Why would you choose Fiji over Tahiti? I'd love to hear what makes Fiji special!
