7. Visit Viseisei Village
According to locals Viseisei village which is located 12 kilometers north of Nadi is the oldest settlement in Fiji, believed to have been founded by some of the first settlers more than two millennia ago. This village has also been home to some of Fiji’s leaders and hosted dignitaries such as Prince Charles. You will have to pay the ladies at the craft market to take you around, a fee that costs only $3 and is well worth it. Visitors will get a real sense of village life and see things such as a traditional chief’s hut and ceremonial drums, as well as the Methodist Church. An important monument is in this village, and includes both a cross and neck-breakers club, that was used in past times by Fijian cannibals. Make sure to cover up here, both your knees and shoulders as anything less is disrespectful in this setting.
