Fiji bula

Fiji is an exotic tropical paradise in the South Pacific made up of 322 islands. It is about 2,000 east of Australia. The Fijians were once feared to be cannibals and fierce warrior, now they welcome you with open arms. The population is made up of indigenous Fijians and a melting pot of different cultures. To name a few there were settlers from India, Europeans, Chinese, and other Pacific Islanders.

Most people arrive in Nadi, one of the largest towns in Fiji, and the main international port.

Language: The official languages are English, Fijian and Fijian Hindi with English as the language for official affairs and business in the main cities. The local word for Hi, Good Day or a greeting in general is "Bula" and they will great you with a smile.

Passports: Passports are needed to visit Fiji. The passports must be valid for at least six months beyond the departure date of travel. A visitor permit is obtainable on arrival and are valid for up to four months.

Currency: The Fijian Dollar (FJD) is the unit of currency, with 100 cents to the dollar. Major credit cards are accepted at most hotels, restaurants, shops, and rental car agencies. Your US Dollar can be exchanged at all banks.

Electricity: Electrical current is 240 volts. What does this mean to you? You will need an adaptor for your electronics. A 50Hz plugs have three oblique flat pins (plug type I)

European plus. Fiji has it's own

Weather: In the Nadi area in 2016 the heaviest rain fall was January through April with April having the highest total monthly rainfall. However January and March tied for the highest long term average rainfall 1971-2000). In my research December was also added in. With the change in the climates your rainy season could run from December - April. Keep in mind that it would be similar to Arizona's monsoon season. Just because it is does not mean they will have storms. Also it could rain in the morning and be beautiful in the afternoon.

Flight's to Fiji

Fiji Airlines offer a non stop from Los Angeles to Nadi, Fiji. With an international flight in Los Angeles you have two options: 1st: Drive to LAX and park your car. 2nd: Fly to LAX. With the flight from Phoenix to LAX can purchase a non refundable separate ticket or a combined ticket.

Normally purchasing a separate ticket does work out less for the airfare however you then have to pay for the baggage. Unless you fly Southwest where they include check bag fees.
