Culture - A superyacht guide to Asia Pacific cruising destinations, with sample itineraries
Fiji offers the perfect fusion of its original and indigenous culture - which is an active and central part of everyday life in Fiji - and the influences of the modern world. Grass skirts are Fiji’s traditional attire, but today the modern national dress is the sulu (a skirt like wrap worn by men and women alike). The nation is multi-racial and multi-cultural and many religions are followed, it’s highly encouraged to join in on Sunday worship even if you aren’t religious.

Like everywhere in the Pacific, family is hugely important to all Fijians, and visitors are welcomed into the close knit communities to experience the Fijian way of life first hand.

Music is an integral part of the Fijian culture and the ‘Meke’ uses traditional song and dance to tell the legends and histories of the islands. Interpreted in many different ways, these beautiful performances are a must-see.
