Explore the local streets on a walking tour of the city
First up, you will get to know the city better with a wander through Nadi town, past the Hindu temple which is a popular site for tourists. From the temple, you will escape the tourist route and start digging into local life — and what better place to experience daily life than at the local market.
You will head to the public market and join the hustle and bustle as locals shop for vegetables, seasonal local fruits, fresh seafood, and river mussels. Learn about the kava sessions that happen in the market, and visit a popular bread shop for their morning cream buns. Explore small cafés owned by local Chinese families that open in the early hours of the morning and are a hot spot for grabbing a tea and hearty breakfast.
Straight after the market, head over to a popular snack corner (locals call it a bean cart), where you can try some fresh peas and Indian sweets. These snacks are a part of many young Fijians’ lives as they’re growing up, the bean cart is a popular pit stop for students before they board their bus home. There are many bean carts with similar sweets sold, but they all have different methods for cooking them and locals each have their own favourite cart.
Next up, board a local bus, heading along Wailoaloa Beach and passing by a village and a few urban neighborhoods. Forget the typical tourist bus with closed windows and Wi-Fi. Instead you are hoping on a traditional bus with open windows, offering up a wide-angle view of life outside, and a breezy ride.
Arriving at the Martintar area, you will stop for a refreshing coconut juice. These juices are sold by unemployed youths trying to make a living for themselves, and you’ll get to talk with some of the coconut vendors and learn what inspired them to start selling coconut juice.
After your walk through Martintar, you will stop for lunch and dig into a delicious Fijian meal at a popular locally owned restaurant.
