Faces of Fiji

Friendly Fijian Children

Fijians are known worldwide as the friendliest people, and I’d rate their friendliness as the number one impression I was left with during my visit. From children to elders, the beautiful spirit of the Fijian people shines as bright as the sun that they are blessed with. The most common Fijian word you hear will be Bula (pronounced as”Boo-lah”). This is the Fijian way of saying “Hello”. Whether they are singing, dancing or welcoming you to their home, the people of Fiji will do everything they can to make you feel relaxed, welcome, and awed by the beauty of their islands and their hearts.
