What can a woman travelling solo do in Suva in the evening?

I'm going to have a spare evening in Suva and am wondering how can I spend it. Advice please.

Other than finding a nice place to dine I would not venture out alone in Suva at night. If you must go out get a taxi both ways. If you are out and about during the day too, don't go in to the back streets, stick to the main thoroughfares.

Totally agree with the others, don't go wandering around Suva in the evening. If you have to leave your hotel for dinner, take a taxi there and back. There is not a lot to do in Suva at night unless you want to go to a nightclub and I don't think that would suit you, certainly not my idea of a good night out!

Think you would be better off sticking to your hotel/resort and having dinner there than venturing out at night :).

Sorry TaiMarilyn ;-) - it's good to know you're looking after my interests!!

DoryBlue - thank you too - I'll be very very careful I promise!

Beerwalk - I think you're absolutely right! I didn't realise it was so dangerous but you've all convinced me!!

I'll have to find a nice hotel with good food, a bar and possibly some entertainment laid on. Anybody got any recommendations please?

I've never been, as you know, but I get the impression it's mainly Suva that's dangerous especially after dark and maybe Nadi to a lesser extent. I'm sure lots of the very helpful contributors will answer your question with all their wealth of experience. I think the villages are safe by the way - it seems to be the big towns which are less so.

angella169, don't get the wrong impression, Fiji is not dangerous - it is a great place, you can walk around freely just about anywhere but for a women on her own it would not be advisable to wander around at night especially in the towns in particular Suva. There are the odd pickpocket and bag snatcher but again that is mainly in Suva and as most tourists don't go to Suva it is not such a big deal.
