Papeete

The capital of French Polynesia, Pape'ete amounts to little more than a medium-sized town by Western standards, but it is still a thriving hub of culture and commerce.
Get out of town with these interesting Papeete side-trips: Ciao Tahiti Excursions 4x4 - Day Tours (in Punaauia) and Faarumai Waterfalls (in Arue). And it doesn't end there: browse the eclectic array of goods at Municipal Market, contemplate the waterfront views at Point Venus, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Notre Dame Cathedral, and admire the natural beauty at Paofai Gardens.

Philadelphia, USA to Papeete is an approximately 18.5-hour flight. You'll gain 5 hours traveling from Philadelphia to Papeete due to the time zone difference.

The largest and probably best-known of the French Polynesian islands, Tahiti remains synonymous with turquoise coral lagoons, lush tropical vegetation, and palm-fringed beaches of black, volcanic sand. Tall, green mountains rise out of the blue ocean, lined with deep valleys, foaming waterfalls, and tumbling streams. Settlements skirt the island, including French Polynesia's small but vibrant capital Pape'ete, where colorful architecture, a bustling market, and smiling locals generate a great deal of charm. Top things to do here include exploring the island's rugged interior, as well as experiencing the traditional culture through archeological sites and hip-shaking music and dance.
