Suva, located on the south east side of Viti Levu island is the capital city of Fiji. It is the main commercial and political centre and headquarters to many local and international companies. Excluding New Zealand, it is the largest and most sophisticated city in the South Pacific and in 2003 hosted the South Pacific Games for the third time.
Take an Umbrella!

The driest month is July and even then there is still 125mm of rainfall. The temperatures are very hot all the year round never usually dropping below 32 degrees Celsius in June, July and August and rising to 37 degrees Celsius in March.
The Old Colonials
There is no ancient history in Suva or the surrounding district, however, the area is rich in colonial history such as the Suva City Library and Government House, which is now the official residence of the President.
Celebrate With the Locals
