THE World is a Book (magazine), and those who do not travel, read only a page. ~ Saint Augustine.
I recently came across this stunning popular online magazine, Explore Fiji, featuring so many ways to explore Fiji. The goal of the publication is to promote Fiji to the world – and it achieves this with warm and vibrant pictures of all aspects of Fijian life to stories on Fijian sports men and women who have been successful internationally, to articles on Fijian resorts and things to do in our beautiful Fiji – all in a digital ‘flip book’ design. Outstanding!
In the current edition, Publisher/Editor, Connie Chew, says,
Bula and Cola Vina,
Welcome to the only country on earth where you are welcomed with a warm ‘BULA’ everywhere you go. Yes, Bula is ubiquitous. Bula means “life” and in a greeting in implies wishes for “good health”. Before long you’ll find yourself instantly saying Bula … On occasion, you may also hear the greeting, “Cola Vina (pronounced Thola Veenah and also means ‘life’), which is a dialect spoken in the Western region of Fiji.
Just like the wonderful hospitality of our people, I agree, Bula is infectious.
In this handy-sized magazine issue, we give you a window to what you can expect to do in Fiji today and in the future with features and information on places, activities, attractions and events…
Immerse yourself in our country’s countless offerings as you explore Fiji and especially engage with our multi-cultural communities.

Connie tells me that Explore Fiji has been nominated for the upcoming AON Fiji Excellence in Tourism Award for Services & Support to Industry. I firmly believe she deserves to win. Here is my testimonial. Why not add your’s in the Comments box below. C’mon now, let’s get behind the publisher of this work of art and passion for Fiji.
I recently came across the stunning and popular online magazine Explore Fiji, featuring so many ways to explore Fiji’s islands and tourism activities. Explore Fiji is an outstanding tourism magazine that puts Fiji at the forefront of the reader’s mind through its focused stories on the resorts, events and multi-cultural aspects of life in Fiji and its vivid colour images and innovative ‘flip book’ design. As I ‘flip’ through its pages, I feel drawn into Fiji and compelled to book my airline ticket and resort for a wonderful, fun filled holiday in Fiji!
As its Publisher/Editor, Connie Chew, states, the magazine welcomes visitors “… to the only country on earth where you are welcomed with a warm ‘BULA’ everywhere you go.” She is right, the publication fills me with the BULA spirit and makes me want to go and experience Fiji!
The goal of Explore Fiji is to promote Fiji to the world – and it overwhelmingly achieves this with, amongst many wonderful features, warm and vibrant pictures of all aspects of Fijian life, stories on Fijian sports men and women who have been successful internationally, and articles on Fijian resorts, and things to do in beautiful Fiji.
The vivid colour images and expertly edited text and design in an online ‘flip book’ format are innovative and forward looking, especially catering for the booming 18-35 year old tourism market segment who carry their iphones and tablets with them all the time and use them to make travel bookings and transmit pictures and stories of surfing, sailing, swimming and other fun activities in Fiji back home to families and friends. In doing so they are helping promote Fiji to a captured market niche.
Through its exceptional innovation, content and design, Explore Fiji ensures that it is making an invaluable and ongoing contribution to the Services and Support of the Tourism industry in Fiji. I fully endorse Explore Fiji for the award AON Fiji Excellence in Tourism Award for Services & Support to Industry.
