Cultural Hint:
Local dress in Fiji the Sulu is versital & funVisitors are asked to be careful not to offend local sensibilities. Wearing bikinis and ultra-brief, swimming costumes is fine at the resort but not when visiting villages or shopping in town. At such times it is easy to take a sulu to use as a wrap-around so no offence is caused. Both men and women should be careful to respect local feelings.

The wrap-around “sulu” is Fiji’s most distinctive and versatile form of dress. It is women who obtain the most benefit from the “sulu”. There are at least ten different ways in which it can be used, even for evening wear. Ask your resort staff for hints on tying and wearing your “sulu”.
