About some traditions

Tuvalu is composed of nine small coral islands scattered in a chain lying approximately northwest to southeast. The de facto capital is the village of Vaiaku, where most government offices are located. Funafuti Conservation Area is one of the best places to catch some beautiful natural sights including reefs, channel and a gorgeous lagoon. Thanks to its marine life diversity, it is an excellent spot for snorkeling and scuba diving.

Across all contexts, everyday interactions between most people emphasize convivial informality, positive politeness, and indirection.

The culture of Tuvalu is unique yet typical of the culture of the South Pacific Islands. Feasts, featuring traditional dancing and music, are often held at the Maneapas, which are the focal point of the community. Get in on the singing, dancing, and general frivolity taking place at the maneapas almost every night.
