Tipping & Gift suggestions when visiting the Fiji Islands

February 16, 2014 · Print This Article

Tipping & Gifts to Fijians: Quite often my Clients ask me about tipping or if they should bring a gift for the Staff or Village Children.  Customary tip can range from $100 - $1,000.00 USD or 10% of your stay - its up to your discretion.  You will absolutely fall in love w/the Fijians.

Note: If you want to pack something special for the children when you visit a village, they love pencils (colored or plain) and notebook paper  (for 50 kids) that would be amazing.

Also they love folded up maps of the world (just 5 or 10) as they are hungry for knowledge. They like to see where you come from and how far away it is from their village - great conversation peice!

If you forget to bring something and decide to do so upon your arrival in Fiji, if you are on an island with a small general store, you can pick up a bag of “lollies” hard candy for approximately $6.00USD.  The Women and children of the village consider them a real treat!
