Tourism Fiji launches Happiness Month

How to find your happy in Fiji

There will be a month of ‘happy moments’ for guests travelling to Fiji during March to celebrate Fiji’s Bulanaires; people rich in happiness.


Coinciding with International Day of Happiness on March 20, Tourism Fiji will celebrate the thing that sets them apart from other Pacific destinations, which are its people. The launch of the Bulanaires campaign celebrates those who are rich in happiness and look to share that happiness and happy moments with others. The campaign also aligns with its brand ethos of ‘where happiness finds you’.

The annual International Day of Happiness is a global movement supported by the United Nations to increase human happiness and wellbeing. Although happiness means something different to everyone, we all feel happier when it is shared. 


This year, Tourism Fiji launches its inaugural Happiness Month with the industry creating and sharing ‘happy moments’ throughout travel in March, along with the chance to meet some of the showcased Bulanaires.
