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.
Escape the urban bustle at The Water Gardens of Vaipahi and Taharuu Beach. Explore hidden gems such as Taravao Plateau and Viamiti Perles. Take a break from Papeete with a short trip to Bain de Vaima in Taravao, about 1 hour away. And it doesn't end there: get outside with Vallee de la Papenoo, visit a coastal fixture at Pointe Venus, admire the masterpieces at Paul Gauguin Museum, and get engrossed in the history at Museum of Tahiti and the Islands.

To see more things to do, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Papeete itinerary website.

London, UK to Papeete is an approximately 26-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Greenwich Mean Time to Tahiti Time is minus 10 hours. When traveling from London in June, plan for somewhat warmer days and warmer nights in Papeete: temperatures range from °C by day to °C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel to Bora Bora.

There's a reason why many consider Bora Bora the most romantic island in the world.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Leopard Rays Trench and Bora Bora Turtle Centre. Get a sense of the local culture at Paroisse Saint Pierre-Celestin Church and Alain Despert. And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Matira Beach, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, take in the awesome beauty at Mount Pahia, and contemplate the geological forces at Mount Otemanu.
