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.
Step out of Papeete with an excursion to The Water Gardens of Vaipahi in Taravao--about 56 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: take an in-depth tour of Museum of Tahiti and the Islands, take in the dramatic natural features at Point Venus, see the interesting displays at Musee de la perle et Bijouterie, and admire the sheer force of Faarumai Waterfalls.

For ratings, maps, traveler tips, and other tourist information, use the Papeete trip itinerary planner.

Use the Route module to find suitable travel options from your home destination to Papeete. Expect a daytime high around °C in May, and nighttime lows around °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Sun) early enough to travel to Moorea.
