The Fiji islands were formed about 150 million years ago thanks to the volcanic activity from the South Pacific Ocean. Only 110 of the 320 Fijian islands are inhabited, some of them since the second millennium BC. Thanks to the abundance of its resources, Fiji is one of the most developed countries in the Pacific. The mixture of different ethnic groups, starting with natives, Europeans, Chinese, etc is what made the culture of the islands extraordinary. The weather is great all over the year, the landscapes go beyond any imagination and the natural biodiversity is overwhelming. But what makes Fiji more interesting for tourists are its holidays: Diwali, the Hindu holiday of lights, Christian holidays of Christmas and Easter, Prophet Mahommed’s Birthday important to all the Muslims, Fiji Day and Boxing Day.
There are 11 public holidays in Fiji in 2014.
