In November 2011 I had a great half-day in Suva. It is certainly a great place to go for people who dont care so much about beaches, but are interested in local culture !

This man in a local kilt is the guard of the Presidential Palace in Suva.

Dont miss to take a look into the FIJI - MUSEUM for a lot of great exhibits about local customs, traditional boats, local animals etc.

Pros and Cons

    Fantastic vegetation! And interesting museum. My god, what a beetle!! I love the boats in the museum and especially the early version of a catameran :-) Grand Pacific Hotel looks mazaing but it must cost a fortune to renovate it! Love your local customs, cute kilts these guys have and the fabrics in the museum ar gorgeous!

    Suva looks indeed interesting to visit but I wouldn't want to meet such a beetle when it's alive. I think that would freak me out.

    The Fiji Museum looks like an interesting place to visit. That helmet made from a fish is really different!

    Somehow this isn't quite as I imagined Fiji to be - many of the buildings look very European! Interesting to see them, but I prefer the colonial style ones, and I like the harbour-front building especially. And that is one huge beetle - I would have been glad that he was in a display cabinet rather than wandering around!

    A friend of mine was once a librarian in Fiji - I wonder if he ever visited or worked in that Carnegie library???

    Michael, fabulous new page about this unusual place. So if they have the 2nd largest beetle-species here, the question is of course: Where do the largest beetles live?
