Suva to see more tourists by sea
October 22, 2014 1:01 am
Suva City has been experiencing a hive of activity with tourists every week.
Council special administrator Chandu Umaria says 30 cruise ships had berthed in Suva’s port from January 2014 to date and another 13 cruise ships were expected to berth in the port by December this year.
Umaria says the berthing of cruise ships into the port of Suva has given the community new life, and creates opportunities for entrepreneurs to establish new services and products, or facilities that would not be sustainable based on the local population of residents alone.
He says discussion had been in progress with a tourist boat company (Princess Yasawa) that had chosen Suva as one of their destinations for tourist visits.
Umaria adds that Suva will be seeing more tourists in the coming future which is a sign of a healthy economy for the city and the nation as a whole.
