"Malo e lele" is the greeting word of Tonga. Consisting of 171 small islands only 45 inhabited Tonga is one of the few countries in the world and the only one in Polynesia never to be colonized by European power. The Royal family has continuously been ruling for over a thousand years. At the Tongan village you will notice neatly thatched buildings Tonga is just west of the international dateline and so is the first country to greet each new day.
