Just to alert everybody - think twice before moving to Suva for work as an expat. This place is terrible and unfriendly to non-locals. Your spouses will not be able to work as work permit is such a difficult anomaly here. Even to do volunteer work is not possible - you get reported if you do and sent out of country.
The place is empty - there is nothing happening here. No concerts, no shows, no theaters, no arts. Yes there are resorts but they are super expensive and it is better to save that money for your trip to outside of Fiji.
Fijians are in general friendly but very rude in behaviour - do not expect to get a way either on street, or office or road.
Prices - it is very expensive place. Prices from this table are taken probably from the city market but absolutely not related to real prices in supermarkets (where expats usualy go). Such quoted price of FJ$8 for meal in restaurants is ridiculous! There are not western type restaurants except few in hotel and one on boat. All other so called restaurants are just basic food eateries with dirty tables.
Do not go to Fiji - they do not like expats (at government level even!), only your money.
