Papeete, Tahiti — 6 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.
Explore Papeete's surroundings by going to Bain de Vaima (in Taravao) and Tahiti Safari Expedition (in Arue). There's much more to do: hunt for treasures at Municipal Market, walk around Bougainville Park, admire the natural beauty at Paofai Gardens, and steep yourself in history at James Norman Hall Home.

For photos, other places to visit, traveler tips, and tourist information, read Papeete trip itinerary builder.

Phitsanulok, Thailand to Papeete is an approximately 30-hour flight. You'll gain 17 hours traveling from Phitsanulok to Papeete due to the time zone difference.

French Polynesia travel guide

4.4
Spanning an area of the South Pacific as large as Western Europe, French Polynesia includes 118 islands and atolls scattered across the blue ocean. White sand beaches (and pink and black) skirt rugged island peaks, while magnificent coral reefs form tranquil lagoons, dyed a startling blue and teeming with fish, eels, dolphins, rays, turtles, and sharks. The names Tahiti and Bora Bora conjure up images of private thatched bungalows built out over a lagoon, and couples silhouetted against the sunset. That said, a wide range of family-run hotels and bed and breakfasts offer less extravagant (and surprisingly affordable) experiences that take in more of the laid-back local culture.
