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 24th (Sat): steep yourself in history at James Norman Hall Home, take in nature's colorful creations at Paofai Gardens, then get engrossed in the history at Museum of Tahiti and the Islands, and finally examine the collection at Musee de la perle et Bijouterie. Keep things going the next day: tour the water at your own pace with Poe Charter Tahiti, then stop by Papeete Roulottes, and then hunt for treasures at Municipal Market.

To see more things to do, photos, and tourist information, go to the Papeete day trip planning website .

Innsbruck, Austria to Papeete is an approximately 30-hour flight. You'll gain 11 hours traveling from Innsbruck to Papeete due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Innsbruck in August, things will get somewhat warmer in Papeete: highs are around 33°C and lows about 25°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Sun) early enough to travel to Avatoru.
