Fiji's culture is a rich mosaic of indigenous, Indian, Chinese and European traditions. Fijian indigenous society is very communal, with great importance attached to the family unit, the village, and the vanua (land) . A hierarchy of chiefs presides over villages, clans, and tribes.
For those seeking to experience Fiji's ancient culture first-hand, Aqua-Trek offers traditional village trips that give our guests a friendly insight into Fijian life, customs and crafts. The Arts Village and Cultural Centre, located in Pacific Harbour, provides the best cultural shows Fiji has to offer, along with traditional arts and crafts shops, boutiques, bars and cafes.
