Popular places to stay and things to do in Nadi
Nadi is a unique place to be. Alive with Hindi and Fijian top 40 drifting into the streets from every storefront, it can be appreciated for its culture or serve as a base to venture further to coastal resorts, offshore islands, inland jungles and beautiful beaches. Touch down at the airport and find the best of Fiji within easy reach. Here are a few of the most popular places to find nearby.
The heart of the city is a little removed from the airport and main tourist hotspots, and it's where you'll find the main services like the hospital and supermarkets. Not many stay here, but those who do can experience a slice of authentic Fiji life and some of the cheapest hotels.
Things to do in Central Nadi:

- Tour the temple: Visit the Sri Siva Subramaniya Hindu Temple, a fabulously colourful place with impressive intricate carvings. Walk around and take a look while it's open to visitors. Temple etiquette is to cover your shoulders and legs and enter only if you've eaten no meat that day

Where to stay in Central Nadi:
- The President Hotel is a "Great new hotel at the bridge into Nadi town. Perfect for tourists and business travelers alike. Rooms are spacious, stylish and clean, with very comfortable beds and amenities. While the road is a bit noisy, the convenient location is steps away from the best shopping area in Nadi. Safe location, and much nicer than the other options downtown." Verified traveller review, April 2019
