Papeete— 10 nights
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.Get out of town with these interesting Papeete side-trips: Arue (Faarumai Waterfalls & Safaris) and Taravao (The Water Gardens of Vaipahi, Taravao Plateau, & more). And it doesn't end there: hunt for treasures at Municipal Market, pause for some serene contemplation at Notre Dame Cathedral, admire the sheer force of Fautaua, and see the interesting displays at Musee de la Perle Robert WAN - The Robert WAN Pearl Museum.
