“best palce for tourist gifts”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

cheaper by far just be firm about being hassled to buy from store holders tell them back off or you wont look and don't buy from wandering sellers in the street they will hoodwink you first sign is if they ask your name

“Handi craft Center”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Here you can buy the local art work at very reasonable price. Prices are better then the Tappos. Location is very close to the local market place.

“Great for a look at hand crafted items”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

A lot of tourists wouldn't like to constant hassell the store holders trying to get you to look at their goods. This is what the Fijians do so just go with the flow and say just looking.

Reviewed 3 September 2013

The handicraft craft centre has great Island artefacts but unfortunately due to strict quarantine rules of Australia I was not able to buy any .Ended up buying some T-shirts etc which were cheaper than the stores.

“Pushy vendors”
Reviewed 2 September 2013 via mobile

Ok, so apart from the stock being o er priced and the vendors as pushy as anything, the stock was generally appealing to the eye, though not the pocket. I recommend the Suva flea market same stock, cheaper price
