One of Suva’s most enduring charms is its lively nightlife. Most of the bars and clubs are in one block around Victoria Parade and Carnarvon St, making it easy to hop from one to another and sample the different atmospheres. Fijians like to drink communally, as if drinking yaqona – if you buy a Fiji Bitter “long neck”, which is more economical, it will be shared by passing round a small glass to down in one. It’s a quick way of getting drunk and brawls occasionally break out in the wilder places. However, the locals are very protective of foreign visitors and on most occasions you’ll be well looked after. Taxis are advisable for the ride back to your hotel.
