On your upcoming trip to Fiji’s capital, make sure to add our Suva car hire services to your planning list. Suva is the country’s largest city and is located on the island of Viti Levu. The city has not evolved like many other capitals in the world have, around a particular industry, instead it gradually developed into a commercial, financial and political hub for both the Oceania region as well as the country itself.
Getting into Suva will probably happen via the Nausori Airport and the best way of getting around the place would be with the help of our Suva car rental services. Even though the city sports a public transport system having a car at your disposal will allow for a large degree of flexibility on your trip.
Once in the city there are a few landmarks that you may want to visit, such as the Suva City Library or the Carnegie Library, a Colonial building from 1909, there are many others from its period around the city worth a visit.
The Government buildings complex is interesting to visit knowing that it stands on what was once a creek, drained in 1935 and then the ground stabilized with over five kilometers worth of reinforced concrete.
The Government House, completely different from the complex mentioned earlier used to be the residence of the colonial governors, originally built in 1882 it is now the official residence of the country’s president.
Another old institution that you may not want to miss a chance at visiting is the Fiji Museum which was founded in 1904 and now holds the most comprehensive collection of Fijian artifacts in the world while also acting as a research and educational institution.
The city also offers a myriad of parks to choose from, somewhere around eighty parks in fact, some of the most popular being Thurston Gardens where you can find the Fiji Museum and the Takashi Suzuki Garden.
The city has many more things to offer, including many chopping and retail areas as well as a variety of entertainment options, all of which you can better explore with the help of our Suva car hire services.
