    It is a matter of politeness that you never enter any of the local huts - including the large assembly-huts - unless you are invited by a local ! Please take off your hat, scarf or cap as well and your shoes before you take a seat on the floor like the locals do !
    The local people are quite friendly, BUT be aware: in this area man-eating and cannibalism still happens now and then...

    search your clothings before you leave

    This is something special that happened to me or rather my trousers after intensive hikes on this island: Take a look at my picture, there were hundreds of sticky plants or rather seeds of plants that took me a lot of work to clean them from my pants.
    It is SUCH and similar plants that you should not take to any other island when taking a cruise in that area, and especially when your cruise gets back to Australia you might get into trouble, when the customs-authorities find such things attached to any of your trousers or shoes etc.

    Bula or Bula, Bula is the local word for "Hello" ! And so you will hear these words quite often, when you take a walk on any of the Fiji Islands. Bula is the local word for "hello, how are you?" and a lot of people will great tourists as well that way in the streets.
    It is always ment in a friendly way, and almost never it is just a way to get into contact with a potential customer. When-ever you go inside a shop and just take a look around without buying anything they still stay nice and friendly and I also found lots of local people who like to chat with tourists !
