#5 of 7 in Shopping in Suva
Search for the perfect souvenir at Municipal Handicraft Centre, a winding street full of craft stalls and local character. The native folk arts and crafts are all created by those who operate the market's traditional stalls. Keep an eye out for Indo-Fijian woven baskets and fine art, which are popular wares here. Bargaining is welcome, and vendors are typically open to negotiating prices. Plan my trip to Suva with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Where to stay in Suva

By and large, accommodations in Suva cluster in the vicinity of its main strip, Victoria Parade. Here you have a solid choice of comfortable hotels, mostly in the mid-to-high range, with the most lavish options located on the Parade itself and backing onto the waterfront. For slightly more affordable prices, look along Robertson Road, a ten-minute walk north of Victoria Parade.
