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.
When in Papeete, make a side trip to see Faarumai Waterfalls in Arue, approximately Arue away. There's much more to do: hunt for treasures at Municipal Market, get engrossed in the history at Museum of Tahiti and the Islands, admire the natural beauty at Paofai Gardens, and admire the sheer force of Fautaua.
