Full description
Take a walking tour of Nadi, Fiji's third largest conurbation, and get a taste of everyday life for the locals in the small shops and public market. Get to know the city better with a wander through Nadi town, passing a popular Hindu temple popular with tourists.

Then, escape the tourist trail and immerse yourself in the local life. Go to the public market to join the hustle and bustle of locals shopping for vegetables, seasonal fruits, fresh seafood and river mussels. Learn about the kava sessions of the market, and visit a popular bread shop to sample their morning cream buns. Visit 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.

Next, head over to a popular snack corner (locals call it a" bean cart") to try some fresh peas and Indian sweets. These snacks are a part of many young Fijians’ lives as they’re growing up, and it's a popular pit stop for students before they board their bus home. 

Board a local bus heading along Wailoaloa Beach, and pass by a village and a few urban neighborhoods. Experience an authentic local mode of transport with open windows providing wide-angled views far removed from the usual comforts of a tourist bus. Arrive in the Martintar area, where you’ll stop for a refreshing coconut juice, sold by unemployed youths trying to make a living. Chat with some of the vendors and learn what inspired them to start selling coconut juice.

Give your feet a rest with a delicious Fijian lunch at a popular locally-owned restaurant.
