Fijians are known for being one of the friendliest nations on earth. They are very casual and hospitable and if visitors take the time to respect beliefs and customs than they will be very welcome. It is therefore important to remember that Fijians are very modest and there are certain rules that should be followed when visiting villages:
• Moderate dress is required
• No hats, this is seen as a sign of disrespect
• Always remain with hosts
• It is customary to bring a gift (sevusevu) of yagona
Fiji has three official languages: English, Fijian and Hindustani, with English being the most widely spoken.
The Fijian language has many dialects and has around 350,000 first-language speakers, with around 200,000 second-language speakers.
Fiji is a multicultural nation, and as such, many different major religions are represented. Christian churches, and mosques, as well as Sikh and Hindu temples, can be found around the islands. Christianity is the dominant religion with the largest denomination being the Methodist Church of Fiji and Rotuma.
Fijians are very religious with indigenous Fijians believing in gods that bring prosperity and misfortune as well as spirits from the afterlife.
