The capital of Fiji is Suva, a beautiful harbour city built on a hilly peninsula, which stretches out into the sea. Although Suva is the commercial and political centre of Fiji, and the largest city in the South Pacific, its tall modern buildings are beautifully balanced by its rich traditional colonial architecture.
There is plenty to do and see in this exotic destination. You can stroll through Thurston Gardens, next to the official residence of the President of the Republic of Fiji, and peruse the museum's remarkable collection archaeological material, dating back 3,500 years. Discover some of Fiji's unique fauna and flora at the cultural centre on Orchid Island and visit Albert Park, where Charles Kingsford-Smith landed the 'Southern Cross' on his trans-Pacific flight in 1928.
Don't miss the municipal markets near the waterfront, which come to life on a Fridays and Saturdays with artefacts and handicrafts from Fijians throughout this idyllic island group.
