Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A pleasant place to rest in the shade, admire the wall art and buy a souvenir from the craft market. A number of stalls make their own products and will create something just for you. There is also the usual touristy stuff. The trees are just beautiful.

The Handicraft Market in Nadi disappoints with a 1/5 rating, falling victim to its status as a tourist trap. With only a handful of stores, it lacks variety and authenticity. Moreover, the aggressive sales tactics of vendors detract from the shopping experience. Visitors are likely to leave feeling underwhelmed and pressured into making purchases they didn't intend. For a more genuine and enjoyable shopping excursion, travelers are advised to explore alternative markets in the area.

We had a rental car so drove to Nadi mainly to exchange money for a good rate. I also wanted to go to the market and get bargain. There is a big car park next to the handicraft market which is really quite small... about 12 stalls only. They all sell the same goods and all at inflated prices. Obviously willing to negotiate but seriously, you wouldn't bother coming to Nadi just to see this market. Better to buy your goods at jack at port Denarau... some of the prices were cheaper than the 'market'. What is worth it however, is asking one of the stall owners if they change money. You can get the wholesale rate (for Australian dollars).... much much better than in Australia. There are also souvenir stores along the nearby street... even more expensive than the market!

Nothing to see here, would not go. Don't know if the wood is treated or not either.
Small and everyone is selling the same thing for 'special price'.

Beware there are 3 different handcraft authentic souvenir shops that force you into this buying their stuff overly price. Starts off they stalk you and greet you very nicely and take you to those shops and do a budget kava ceremony and while that’s happening they speak business with you during it asking the other co-workers to get some gifts for you (me/customer) without you actually seeing the price on the stickers cause your sitting down… once you go up to the counter it’s twice the price on where actually you could buy it for cheaper and more decent at a place called Jacks or duty free! Or even at certain resorts you stay at is cheaper and you actually get to watch them carve it and you know your money if going back to the master carver.
So highly recommend to stay from those shops and watch out for scammers.

Avoid at all costs. Shifty little weasels pressuring nice people to buy their cheap fake wares. Same tired lies about how they are authentic items from the villages and if you bit them you'll be helping the villagers. $195 for a small black and white print! Seriously.

In Australia, genuine art and other items come with a certificate of authenticity and chain of custody is available. Nothing like this here. Tourist trap scam.

Knock it down, start again.

This is not really my thing anymore. I used to buy a lot of stuff, but now I really am not interested. They had some nice hand crafted articles, but the one thing I would have bought, they didn't have. My wife did buy something. They like to bargain so some good deals can be had.

A nice little setting for a market - we got there early so were swamped by local traders trying to sell their wares. Many stalls had the same range/sort of products - feel sorry for those at the back who probably miss lots of the trade as people stop half way! A few nice little souvenirs purchased but certainly everyone drives a hard bargain

Avoid this dodgy tour operator. We were stuck in the car with a discourteous, yelling tour guide. Did not provide lunch even though it was agreed at the time of booking and itemised on the receipt, charged us waiting when we stopped to buy lunch at our choice of place even though we cut the tour short and came back by midday.
We wrote to the owner immediately after who has acknowledged our email that but hasn’t provided any explanation whatsoever. We sent a follow up email and the owner responded by saying that tour guide is sick and can’t be contacted.
Other than this tour we enjoyed our time in Nadi and Denarau island. Fiji is a really nice place to visit, locals are friendly, food is amazing but be careful and do your research before buying any tours from the local operators.

.Only about 10 stalls offering the same items. Same price as the hotel gift shops, but a few more varieties to choose from. Hopefully what we did spend there went to the local families.
