Everything is within walking distance. Went to the South Pacific Grand hotel where they have a nice patio and good internet.

We got there around 7 AM on a Sunday. Nothing opens till around 10:30 as Church is the main thing. We took lots of school supplies and treats for the kids. Most schools operate on a $5.00 per child per year budget. They were very grateful. ... Read More

Pleasant drive to cultural centre. Show was very good (though there was a fair bit of hanging around while they hoped you would buy souvenirs)

We joined a tour on the pier considerably cheaper (FJD50pp)to see the city and the rain forests. Great tour and great group of people and driver and tour guide. In the rainforest we walked to the lower pool which had a swing rope and crystal clear water. Was cool but refreshing. Great 4hours. Dropped us in city and we walked back to port and had a fantastic foot massage(FJD20pp) Read Less

They catered a tour to do what we wanted to do, this included a village visit with Kava ceremony, city and country tour, a waterfalls stop for a swim and a visit to a school which we loved and it was the highlight of the day.

Long scenic drive, followed by an informative and entertaining demonstration of firewalking and some of the primitive rituals from Fiji's past. Recommended.

We took a tour that we booked on the wharf ( we were scouted the previous day in Lautoka ). We were told $30, which we assumed to be Fijian money, but it turned out to be $30 AUS. We got on the bus just after 9am and were told it would be about 30 minutes before we left, which we accepted. An hour later, we were still sitting and waiting, and people were getting frustrated ( thankfully the bus was air conditioned ). The bus took off, we thought we were finally leaving, but it drove around the block and back to the wharf to collect more people. 75 minutes after boarding, we finally took off. The tour was supposed to be 3 hours which included a local village, waterfall, countryside, local buildings and shopping centre. There was no commentary - the guide sat in the second seat, talked a bit to those near here but no one else could hear. The local village was a drive by - the bus did not stop, we did not get out, no local dancing or anything. Arrived at the waterfall, more waiting as the guide ran back to the entrance ( ? to pay ) and finally off. No mention of what time to be back but we overheard something about an hour so we returned by that time. 90 minutes after arriving, with most people sitting in the bus for at least 30 minutes, we finally left. A tour around the town area but we had no idea what anything was. One stop to take a photo of a guard. Dropped at shopping centre and we walked back to ship. Very unenjoyable experience, so if booking a tour off the wharf, be very careful what you are paying for What we had was not worth the $30. Read Less

We got lucky and booked with a local tour agent who took really good care of us. It ended up being a private tour and the flamboyant and out-going tour guide was able to show us his personal favourite spots of his home city. He was very friendly, a real character and apparently rather well known in town! We ended up meeting his mom too! Read Less

A local shop, Jack's of Fiji, offered free shuttles to its shop, a 5-min ride. Being a Sunday, the two markets near the dock and most shops along the main street, Victoria Parade, were closed. However, Tappoocity and Proud's Shopping Mall very near Jack's of Fiji, were open. Again, lots of private tour operators were at the dock gate. Many passengers, not doing tours, walked around town or all the way to the Presidential Palace passing shops, the Government buildings, Albert Park, Thurston Garden, etc. Read Less

Tour guide/bus driver barely spoke a word of English. Drove like a lunatic, often overtaking vehicles heading straight into oncoming traffic.

Very poor shopping with virtually no duty free . Cannot buy cigarettes except at the airport and Alcohol is so expensive . Don't bother .

We did our own thing. Got off the boat and started walking. The locals will attach themselves to you and guide you to their shop in town. We’d hoped for free wifi, but couldn’t find any. We bought cheap data SIMS from Digicel and all was good! I loved the fresh fruit and vege market – the colours and smells were amazing, and the locals so friendly. Suva has big supermarkets, and you can stock up on personal items. If you’re after postcard Fijian beaches, take a tour (they’re about an hour out of town). Read Less
