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.
Start off your visit on the 4th (Tue): see the interesting displays at Musee de la perle et Bijouterie, then take an in-depth tour of Museum of Tahiti and the Islands, and then tour the water at your own pace with Poe Charter Tahiti. Here are some ideas for day two: browse the eclectic array of goods at Municipal Market, then admire the sheer force of Faarumai Waterfalls, and then contemplate the long history of Point Venus.

To see photos, ratings, other places to visit, and other tourist information, go to the Papeete trip itinerary maker tool .

Los Angeles, USA to Papeete is an approximately 11-hour flight. You'll gain 2 hours traveling from Los Angeles to Papeete due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Los Angeles in June, expect Papeete to be somewhat warmer, temps between 85°F and 73°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 5th (Wed) early enough to travel to Moorea.
