Fiji Things to Do

  • Ndravuni: a great assemby-hall

    This is something that you will still find mainly on remote islands like Ndravuni / Dravuni-island: A large assembly-hut, beeing open on the all sides and the columns that hold the top are decorated in a great way by leaves. For tourists like me they looked like bananleaves, BUT take a look at the comment below by VTmember Geraldine who lives in...

  • Hindu Temple in Nadi

    While visiting Nadi I entered the Hindu Temple. It was my first time in Fiji. The first time, in 1991, it was for free, but in 2012 the gardian made me pay a fee.

  • Sikh Temple

    While in Nadi I heard that there was a Sikh temple in Lautoka, therefore I moved there to sleep for free my last two nights in Fiji, because I was very short of money, and I had to work in Guam and Hawaii to finance me, so I had to spend as little as possible if I wanted to finish successfully my around the world journey, which eventually would...

  • NDRAVUNI: an almost natural island

    Dravuni Island is called Ndravuni Island in VT, so both names are possible and in any case this small island might be as close as possible to the native Fiji islands, that the european sailors found in the former centuries: No electricity, no cars, not even carriages, and everybody has to walk there!I am not sure if these local people live here all...

  • SUVA: the Government House

    This large building right in the centre of Suva is the Government House of Suva and all of the Fiji Islands. It has some kind of a strange architecture in my opinion and a small park in front of it. You cannot enter the building itself, but you can walk around of it if you like to.Next to the government House there is a large sportsfield - see it...

  • Cannibal History

    The Fiji Museum was a fascinating stop as it allowed us to quench our curiosity about the cannibalistic history of the islands. It's really quite gruesome as one would expect and they have many of the real cannibal forks and accounts of different individual missionaries, and enemies eaten and the ritual's that revolved around it. For example, they...

    This was a wonderful fruit and veg market located near the bus station.

Well worth a visit.
