    The Harbour Front-building in Suva

    The Harbour Front-building in Suva / Fiji

    I found this great building in ArtNouveau-style close to the cruise-port. Take a look at the fine details in the facade, there are some really great ornaments left over, although unfortunately it would also need some repairs and restaurations as well.
    Opposite of this building you will find the largest market-hall of Suva, a great place to see and maybe even taste local tropical fruits.

    The Grand Pacific Hotel

    The Grand Pacific Hotel in Suva / Fiji Islands

    The former Grand Pacific Hotel was under total restauration in November 2011 and obviously it will be rebuilt as a luxury hotel again. At one side there will be the ocean and on the other side there is the Victoria Parade, the main boulevard through Suva and the Fiji Museum is just a few steps from there as well.
    Obviously this hotel was closed for lots of years, but even though it was in quite a bad condition when I saw it, I could still see some of its former great architecture.

    The Gokal building & other colonial architecture

    The Gokal building in Suva / Fiji Islands

    The so-called Gokal Building is a good example for a building in the typical Colonial style with arcades in the groundfloor and great balconies on top of them and along all of the building.
    You will see a lot of such buildings, when you walk through Suva and especially along the main boulevard of Suva, the Victoria Parade.
