The shopping in Nadi is great, and Main Street is the centre of the action. At the end of Main Street have a look in Sri Siva Subramaniya Temple and see the largest Hindu temple in the southern hemisphere. Thanks to the influence of Indian migrants who came to Fiji in the late 1800s, this temple is one of the few places outside India where you can see traditional Dravidian architecture.
Just outside of Nadi you have to visit the Garden of the Sleeping Giant. This fifty acre sanctuary is the best kept secret in the South Pacific. With over 2000 varieties of magnificent Asian orchids it's a wonderful place to spend a day wandering through the gorgeous greenery, calm lily ponds and trickling fountains. The highlight is definitely the orchids, but the walk to the base of Sleeping Giant Mountain is one everyone can enjoy.
15 minutes outside of the city the Sabeto Valley is a lush tropical paradise and a wonderful journey into rural Fiji. One of the most popular sights is the Sabeto Mud Baths, where locals believe the mud has many natural healing properties. To get the benefit come for a visit and immerse yourself in the natural spa experience. Continue on to Vuda Lookout, which from the top offers a 360-degree view and one of the best panoramas on the west coast of the island. On the way back to Nadi stop in at the village of Viseisei, which is fabled to be the first landing point of the original Fijian people who came and settled Fiji over 3500 years ago.
