The capital of Fiji, Suva is a heady and humid mix of all the ethnicities that create this vibrant country. It’s not the Fiji of beaches and palms but it does offer some excellent eating and some grand old colonial architecture.
Suva is also home to some interesting places to visit like the Museum of Fiji, which gives an insight into the cultural and political evolution of Fiji. It's in the center of the Thurston Gardens, the tropical gardens filled with native specimens which have been helpfully labelled.
The main street of Suva is Victoria Parade which is home to shops, restaurants and clubs; further south lies the Fijian Parliament and the University of the South Pacific, which will appeal to architecture buffs.
If you’re keen to try the food of the region then Suva is king with plenty of good, cheap Fijian, Indian and Indo-Fijian places to try the local fare.
Fantastic day! The drive is long but so beautiful. Si is an Awesome guide. Just need to be careful of people in Suva trying to get you into certain stores. Viator make the tour booking so easy
It was a trip to say that I had been to Suva but nothing special however my tour guide Sai is absolutely incredible and made it a very memorable day. The best part was him warning our mere single white female tourists of the pitfalls and conmen of Suva and what to watch out for, he saved my bacon with his advice. His jokes and musical interlude on the way back was awesome. That man is a wealth of knowledge and not to mention our coach driver who got us there and back safe and sound.
Great tour on the way down to Suva. But it is not a guided tour as stated once you get to Suva. You are given a map, explained to about the dangers, dropped at a shopping and left to fend forself for 3 to 4 hours. We try to leave the centre and were approach 3 times in 3 minutes we ran back to the shopping centre for safety. We were looking forward to museum tour but did not happen very dissappointed with this tour.
Suva is served by an airport and there are plenty of buses that cover the route from Suva to Nadi and the rest of Viti Levu. Ferries connect the city to other Fijian islands.
