Fiji

Of the 322 islands that make up the Fiji Group, over 100 are inhabited by a rich mixture of vibrant, exuberant Melanesians, North Beach, Mana Island, Fiji East Indians, Polynesians, Micronesians, Chinese, and Europeans, each with a cuisine and culture of their own. Here Melanesia mixes with Polynesia, ancient India with the Pacific, and tradition with the modern world in a unique blend. Nearly half the locals are of Indian descent having been brought there as imported labour by the British to work on the sugar cane farms 125 years ago. They adhere strictly to the traditions of their motherland though few have ever been there in the last two or three generations.
