Papeete, Tahiti

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 enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Taharuu Beach and Punaauia Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Papeete: Faarumai Waterfalls (in Arue) and The Water Gardens of Vaipahi (in Taravao). There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of Museum of Tahiti and the Islands, take in the exciting artwork at Manua Exquisite Tahitian Art, examine the collection at Musee de la perle et Bijouterie, and explore the world behind art at Paul Gauguin Museum.

Plan my Papeete trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Singapore, Singapore to Papeete is an approximately 21-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Singapore Standard Time (SGT) to Tahiti Time (TAHT) is minus 18 hours. In September, Papeete is slightly colder than Singapore - with highs of °C and lows of °C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 21st (Mon) so you can travel to Avatoru.
