Friday, December 07, 2012

NADI offers a great shopping experience with most of the main shops located along the one very busy and congested main street.

Shopping for that trendy outfit in Nadi Town is affordable with items of good quality with several large labels manufactured in the country. T-shirts, jeans, joggers and surf shorts abound here.

Many of the stores have a service orientated feel about them and staff have impeccable manners, but try not to let anyone talk into buying something you don't really want.

There are fine jeweller outlets but styles generally cater for the Indian population.

Woven items and wooden artefacts are some of the most popular souvenir items and these are readily available at many establishments, large and small.

Nadi features some of the largest and best stocked outlets with a wide selection of handicrafts, t-shirts, jewellery, clothing and even paintings by local artists.

There are also a good number of stores that sell digital items such as cameras, I-Pods and mobile phones.

You may encounter a reasonably priced selection of leather goods and items such as black pearls certain stores and a wide variety of Fijian pottery.

The Nadi Handicraft Market, which is an assortment of stalls near the southern end of the town usually sells good woven pandanus baskets, mats, traditional tapa cloth and other goods. Try your hand at bargaining. It can be fun but don't push too hard bearing in mind that these handicrafts and other items take days and sometimes weeks to produce.
