"Bula Vanaka" are the greeting words of Fiji conveying the message of "Good health be with you always." Comprising of 322 islands Fiji is regarded as the crossroad where Melanesia and Polynesia meet. Besides New Zealand, the islands of Fiji are larger than the other Polynesian groups. As a result of the distance covered, differences in culture and dialects are found throughout the islands.
