You can't go wrong.Resorts - Some of the larger resorts like on Denarau have some cheap clothing but in general are more expensive than Nadi.

  • Beautiful Sari's

    We didn't do much shopping in Fiji...wasn't exactly high on our list of priorities what with weddings and dive courses and such...but we did stop here to pick up some souveneirs for the kids. Jacks is a one stop souveneir shop! Everything you can think of can be found right in this one spot.We loved the section called 'Little India', which...

  • Pitfalls of shopping in Nadi

    You are greeted outside of the shop by a local Fijian, while talking the Indian owner comes out and entices you in saying have a look but you don't have to buy. He then puts pearls around your neck, knocking the price down and down, until finally you think you are buying a South Sea black pearl for the cheapest imaginable price. You don't get a...

  • Local Crafts

    Local crafts are probably the only worthwhile thing to buy in Fiji. You can get some nice wooden souvenirs. Make sure you bargain because they will definitely try to rip you off. The best place to buy crafts is in the markets. Some shops also sell them (eg. Jack's Handicrafts) however they are always more expensive.

  • Markets

    When in Fiji, there are alot of woodern souvourners that you may want to take home with you. Purchasing these items from markets is dangerous as the wood may not be treated.When buying bongo drums, make sure the skin is not transparent.Ensure there are no holes in the wood.Ask for a receipt that states 'treated wood' on it.Also - when walking in...

  • Super sarongs!

    This is definately the place to get some of the best sarongs in the world - or sulus, as they are known in Fiji. Or just to take a walk around some of the local markets, they really have a great atmosphere. Bargain away!

  • I love drums!

    I had great fun haggling with the guy running the little stall on the beach where I bought this drum! We had a real good laugh, and he carved mine and my partners names onto the drum as part of the price - ahhhh.....There were also local people selling locally made crafts around some areas of the hotel grounds. They were pleasant and friendly and...

All pices at the shop are screened to ensure originality and have more of a contemporary look to them compared to what you will find at the handicraft market in town.This is definately a "must stop" shop in Suva. There is...

  • Where to go shopping in Fiji

    I found out that if you are interested in buying a Sulu, otherwise known as a sarong, you need to buy it in the capital of Fiji- Suva. There is where all the textile shops are. There is also a Flea Market where i brought a beautiful silk one for only FD$8.00I didn't realize what a great price it was, until I got to Nadi, where the same SULU was...

  • Fresh Fruit and Vegetables

    This is the local market in the centre of Lautoka. If you're looking for a variety of fresh fruit and vegetables, this is the place to go. Unfortunately this trip we didn't purchase anything, but the prices are good. Just don't expect the perfectly formed fruit that we seem to get a home. Fruit, vegetables, spices and kava.

  • Handicrafts

    Places like Jack's are very touristy t-shirt/gifts/handicraft shops. They're nice and clean and air-conditioned, but the bargaining is at a minimum there and the prices are marked up. Of course, I learned that you CAN talk them down if you want to, they'll usually go down a couple of bucks on things, but if you really like to haggle, head to the...

    Suva and Lautoka markets are great for buying fresh fruit and veges. You can often barter with the locals and get more for you dollar.Aside from the cheap prices you will also see a bit of Fijian culture, markets are great to look around and get supplies for a trip out to one of the island resorts.If you get the opportunity to try Kava in a market...
