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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Taharuu Beach and La Maison James Norman Hall. Change things up with these side-trips from Papeete: Taravao (Bain de Vaima & Taravao Plateau) and Faarumai Waterfalls (in Arue). There's lots more to do: take an in-depth tour of Museum of Tahiti and the Islands, browse the eclectic array of goods at Municipal Market, examine the collection at Musee de la perle et Bijouterie, and view the masterpieces at Manua Exquisite Tahitian Art.

To find more things to do, traveler tips, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Papeete trip itinerary tool .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airport is Faa'a International Airport. December in Papeete sees daily highs of 36°C and lows of 28°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
