The capital city of Fiji, verdant Suva is located on the southeastern coast of the largest Fijian island of Viti Levu. With its many universities and colleges, the city has a distinctly youthful character; while its colonial era buildings lend it a charming old world grace. This heady mix of the young and the old is reflected in Suva’s architecture as well as culture. Thurston Gardens with its clutch of important government buildings, landmark structures, park and botanical conservatory is worth a visit. The Fiji Museum and the Government House, a former palace, are also located in these vast gardens. Cumming Street, the main downtown high street, is a lively stretch of shops, restaurants, curry houses and old colonial structures. Spend a day at the Fijian Cultural Village and learn more about local traditions. The forest reserve on the outskirts of town draws travelers with its spectacular waterfalls and swimming holes.
