What is Fiji Like ?

The climate is warm and clammy. There are thick tropical forests on the windward sides of the islands and grassy plains with lots of different plants .Its mild tropical climate means that Fiji can be enjoyed all year round and it is a popular escape from the winters in both the northern and southern hemispheres. Perhaps the best time to go, however, is in the dry season or ‘Fiji winter’, from May to October. This time of year has cooler temperatures, less rainfall and humidity, and less risk of tropical cyclones.It mostly set out in mountainous volcanic region.

Since the second millennium B.C. Fiji has been inhabited by the indigenous Fijian people. Later on it was explored by the Dutch and the British around the 17th century and the 18th century. During 1874 Fiji was proclaimed as possession and dependency of the British crown. Then a large cultivation of sugarcane started in the 1880. After the next 40 years, they brought over 60,000 of indentured laborers from India to the island to work in the sugar cane plantation  In the 1920 all indentured servitude had terminated. This brought up a lot of racial conflicts between the Fijian and the Indians this tension continued for a long time in the small island. Fiji had declared their independence from the British crown in October 10, 1970. In Oct. 1987, General Sitiveni Rabuka staged a revolution to prevent an Indian-dominated union party from taking power. The military rebellion caused a migration of thousands of Fijians of Indian origin to suffer ethnic discrimination at the hands of the government. By July 1998, a new constitution took place in which multiracial cabinet govern and raised the view of an alliance government. In 1999, Fiji’s first ethnic Indian Prime Minister, Mahendra Chaudhry, took office. This brought more racial problem which have lasted for years.
