Things to Know About Nadi Shopping
There are many shops with great wooden souvenirs of all kinds and sizes, but be aware that you might get into problems at customs control if you are headed to Australia. Wooden items of all sorts are forbidden to be taken into Australia, and while some shops insist that their goods have a certificate, it is best to confirm for yourself.
Some things are unbelievably overpriced wherever you go, so be prepared to haggle, particularly in the open air market. Also, you may be shouted at by vendors to see their items, and shop merchants may stand outside their front doors trying to persuade you to come inside as well. Nadi is also one of few places where shops are open on Sundays.
