I am trying to say this in the nicest way possible, because overall I really like Fiji, I think that Fiji's islands and resorts are beautifull and breathtaking, however when I went to Suva I felt slightly disgusted. Fiji is still by far a very third world country, they have extremely high unemployment and poverty, which is increased in the capital city. There is alot of cheap shopping for fake branded items such as clothing and sun glasses etc, but please be aware that alot of people will try to scam you! I repeatedly saw signs saying for example $250 normally, today only $20!!! As if! On top of this you should also expect people to beg you for money, to try and drag you into their shops, and to carve your name into wooden fiji carvings so that you feel obliged to buy them. Expect to see rubbish every where, I remember having to step over a dead dog on the side of the footpath, it was really quite disgusting!
Beaches are by far the best thing in Fiji, my suggestion if you are not staying on a beach resort and for some reason... more travel advice
