Bula /r/Fijian

We are looking to book our first trip to Fiji for around late October. Looking online, it is a little overwhelming with all the packages and brand name resorts, of which, none really appeal to us or seem to fit our wants/needs/style.

So, I was wondering if any Redditors have some tips for us?

We are a mid-30s creative couple with a 10-month-old child. This is a holiday before my partner returns to work from maternity leave, so relaxation (beach, snorkel, pool, bar, restaurant on site, or nearby local village) and babysitting access are high requirements. Keen to avoid the party resorts.

We're pretty well travelled so mingling with locals is fine with us, especially if we can access local food outside the accommodation.

Would probably consider staying at 2 seperate places for 1 week each to see a bit more of the country.

I won't rattle on any longer, but where do you suggest we might take a look at?

Budget: Mid-high mid range ($250-400AUD p/n)

Any and all advice welcome :)

Hello. I'm a teacher and I'm making a lesson which includes information about the Hibiscus festival. What are the most popular foods at the festival? I read that lovo is very popular. Also, what are some popular boys and girls names for 10-12-year-old Fijian children? Thank you very much in advance for your help.

Friend of mine is fijian and she's regularly being called meme from other fijian friends of hers. Just wondered whether that's a fijian thing or something else?

Hi there. I have booked a flight to Fiji (landing in Nadi) and will be staying for 7 nights in September. I am a solo female traveler and was wondering where the best places I should go since I will be staying there a short time. Should I stay in Nadi and book all my accommodation there and just do day trips? Should I venture over to Suva?

Looking for any and all recommendations. Thank you!

Bula! Set your calendar reminders for June the 9th.

Once a year Redditors all over the world gather in their respective communities for a day of food, games and activities, or just having a chat. And of course; the obligatory group photo.

If you are new to /r/Fijian, new to Reddit, or a regular this is a great way to meet fellow redditors and maybe make new friends.

Grab some food, grab your camera or boardgames, bring your dog, bring your friends and come along!

For the Southern Side, we are planning to meet at My Suva Park around midday.

Here is the actual location. The park has a shelter with tables and benches, and it is pet friendly. 12 Midday seems as good a time as any to kick off.

Since we do not have city based subs for Fiji, please feel free to comment below and organise meet ups for your locale.

Bula /r/Fijian,

We are a small, specialist stock photograph company, and we are looking to obtain a comprehensive library of images of Fiji.

We are interested in buying the rights to digitally reproduce high quality photographs taken in Fiji, as well as any original historic photographs.

We will consider any photograph of sufficient quality. However, photographs of the following are of particular interest:

*Pre-1980s photographs of the Yasawa islands *Photographs of Rotuma, Ovalau or any Lau group islands *Contemporary photographs of Suva and Nadi

If you would like us to evaluate your photographs for possible purchase, please reply by private message or e-mail to info[at]nbe.world.

Vinaka !

The NBE purchasing team.

Hey all- First time in Fiji and this subreddit!

I Just landed in Nadi, rented a car, and made a harrowing night drive to Pacific Harbor. I was told the roads were a nightmare fraught with potholes and dodging locals; but what was really frustrating (and even a bit scary) was the constant high-beam flashes from oncoming cars. What does this mean? The drive was rainy, but aside from that I have no clue why we were constantly being flashed by what seems like 35% of the cars that passed by. I checked our headlights and they're a-okay.

Really curious what was going on, especially since I can't find any references to this behavior anywhere. Can anyone shed any light (preferably not directly into my eyeholes) here?

Cheers!

(Also if anyone has any suggestions while we're here for the next week, I'd love to hear them!)

We're planning our wedding at Radisson and one of the drinks options includes local spirits. Does anyone know what these are?

Hi, I run a [desert island survival company](www.desertislandsurvival.com) and we are looking into the feasibility of operating our survival classes in Fiji. Does anyone know where I might start with the identification and permission of such islands? Thanks in advance for your help, Tom
