“Handi craft Center”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Here you can buy the local art work at very reasonable price. Prices are better then the Tappos. Location is very close to the local market place.

“Great for a look at hand crafted items”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

A lot of tourists wouldn't like to constant hassell the store holders trying to get you to look at their goods. This is what the Fijians do so just go with the flow and say just looking.

“artefacts”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

The handicraft craft centre has great Island artefacts but unfortunately due to strict quarantine rules of Australia I was not able to buy any .Ended up buying some T-shirts etc which were cheaper than the stores.

“Pushy vendors”
Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

Ok, so apart from the stock being o er priced and the vendors as pushy as anything, the stock was generally appealing to the eye, though not the pocket. I recommend the Suva flea market same stock, cheaper price

“Lots of handicraft”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

I think this is a really nice place to buy souvenirs before going back home. I went there twice during the week and the second time, some sellers recognized me. They were really nice and respected me when I said I was just looking. They want to sell their handicrafts, but weren't too after me. I stayed there about 1 hour talking with a seller about fijian culture. I really appreciated it.
