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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Vallee de la Papenoo and La Maison James Norman Hall. Visit James Norman Hall Home and Notre Dame Cathedral for their historical value. There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at Museum of Tahiti and the Islands, examine the collection at Musee de la perle et Bijouterie, stop by Tahia Exquisite Tahitian Pearls, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Municipal Market.

To find traveler tips, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, use the Papeete sightseeing planner.

Stockholm, Sweden to Papeete is an approximately 29-hour flight. The time zone difference when traveling from Stockholm to Papeete is minus 11 hours.
