- Authentic immersion into colourful Fiji life
- Dodge the tourists and visit local haunts
Nadi is bursting with life, a vibrant, eclectic city that’s easy to fall in love with. Guided by a local, you’ll explore neighbourhoods that are less-visited by tourists, allowing you to catch a glimpse of what life is really like here. Begin, as all the best tours do, with the bustling marketplace, where you’ll see stalls laden with fresh seafood, river mussels, seasonal fruits and more. Watch the bartering in action, and learn about the kava sessions that take place here. You’ll also be stopping at a popular bakery for a delicious cream bun, and some food carts for traditional Indian sweets and fresh peas.
Next, board a local bus, not the typical tourist transport but a breezy, windows-down ride through urban neighbourhoods and along Wailoaloa Beach, stopping in Martinar for a thirst-quenching fresh coconut juice. This fab Fiji gift experience finishes with a delicious lunch at a neighbourhood restaurant. If you want to get a taste of the real Nadi, this is it.
