Suva Holidays Overview
Suva is the capital city of Fiji, and is found on the southern side of the island of Viti Levu. Suva has a diverse cultural history with indigenous Fijians, Indians, Europeans and Chinese being the major ethnic groups. Suva is part colonial town mixed with modern city. There are many restaurants to select from with an astonishing array of cuisines.
In 1870 a group of Australians were sent to Suva, at that point a typical Fijian village, to settle land and grow cotton for the Polynesia Company. They failed to grow either cotton or sugar. 60,000 indentured Indians were sent to Fiji between 1879 and 1916, and their presence and culture is still a very strong presence in Suva today.
Suva has about 78 parks, museum, library, gallery, and a University. Suva is noted for being on the wet side of the island and receives far more rain than Nadi. Suva has a population of roughly 86 000.
