2017 TO FIJI
Number of travelers that are going as of today:
Dates for the trip: May 24 2017- June 2, 2017.
The hotel dates are 5/26 to 6/1.
From Wikipedia: Fiji is an
archipelago of more than 330 islands, of which 110 are permanently inhabited,
and more than 500 islets, amounting to a total land area of about 18,300 square
kilometres (7,100 sq mi). The farthest island is Ono-i-Lau. The two
major islands, Viti Levu and Vanua Levu, account for 87% of the population of
almost 860,000. The capital, Suva on Viti Levu, serves as Fiji's principal cruise
port. About three-quarters of Fijians live on Viti Levu's coasts, either
in Suva or in smaller urban centres like Nadi (tourism) or Lautoka (sugar
cane industry). Viti Levu's interior is sparsely inhabited due to its terrain.
Fiji has one of the most developed economies in the Pacific due to an abundance
of forest, mineral, and fish resources. Today, the main sources of foreign exchange
are its tourist industry and sugar exports. The country's currency is the
Fijian dollar. Fiji's local government, in the form of city and town councils,
is supervised by the Ministry of Local Government and Urban Development.
The majority of Fiji's islands were formed through volcanic activity starting
around 150 million years ago. Today, some geothermal activity still occurs on
the islands of Vanua Levu and Taveuni.
