Social Life in the Solomon Islands
The people of Solomon Islands are very humble and
modest as they rarely express themselves in a way to offend another. This comes
in respecting other people, dressing modestly, avoiding outward signs of wealth
or affection, and having a reverence for God as most people are Christian.
As a visitor to Solomon Islands, that same modesty
is expected; modesty in dress, actions, words, and every aspect of your life. Many
of the most important behavioral restrictions to be aware of are related to dress,
dating (see below for both), and dining (see our
Solomon Islands Food & Dining Page for more information). Also try to
avoid being loud, rude, showing off wealth, or getting drunk in public.
