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 get in some beach time at Taharuu Beach and Punaauia Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Papeete side-trips: Taravao (Bain de Vaima, The Water Gardens of Vaipahi, & more) and Faarumai Waterfalls (in Arue). There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at Museum of Tahiti and the Islands, contemplate the long history of James Norman Hall Home, hunt for treasures at Municipal Market, and stop by Papeete Roulottes.

Budapest, Hungary to Papeete is an approximately 27-hour combination of train and flight. You can also fly; or do a combination of flight and ferry. You'll gain 11 hours traveling from Budapest to Papeete due to the time zone difference. Plan for much warmer temperatures traveling from Budapest in February, with highs in Papeete at 36°C and lows at 28°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 25th (Tue) early enough to travel to Avatoru.
