Try Nadi's famous one stop souvenir shop Jack's or explore the markets in Nadi and Suva where you'll find some of the world's best sarongs and local Fijian handicraft. Be careful when buying drums or wooden artifacts such as kava bowls, known locally as tanoa. Always ask for a receipt stating that the wood has been treated or you may lose your goods to quarantine.
The Government Crafts Centre and The United Nations Development Programme in Suva support local artists. Original items for sale, which make great mementos of your trip to Fiji, include paintings, carvings, pottery, woven baskets and mats, handbags, jewelery and clothes.
Outside of Nadi, enjoy a day at Lautoka, Fiji's second largest city and home to a range of markets touting fresh fruit, vegetables, kava and spices.
