Fiji Time, Fiji Airways

The first to a three-part series of features on FIJI...

“Bula! Bula! Bula!” A four-letter word that you’ll hear splattered all over the exquisite island nation of Fiji. Locals and tourists alike use this word when they greet others. What does it mean you ask?

Pronounced as ‘boo-lah’, it translates to “life”. A shortened version of “Ni sa bula Vinaka”, which means “wishing you happiness and good health”. If you’re inspired to head to Fiji after this article, you’ll probably hear this for the first-time aboard Fiji Airways, the national carrier of Fiji. You could simply respond with “Bula” and you’ll probably notice your greeter’s smile become wider
