The French Polynesian archipelagos are part of the Polynesian triangle of diverse and exhilarating cultures. As soon as you arrive in Tahiti you are met with the tropical scent of Tiare flowers and charmed at the sound of the ukulele. Your stop on the island of Tahiti is a true cultural experience with the Gauguin Museum, Museum of Tahiti and Her Islands, The Tropical Gardens and a visit to the town of Papeete to visit its traditional markets.
To really experience Tahiti you must taste their culinary specialties - marinated raw fish in coconut milk, Tahiti’s vanilla sauce and their traditional Maa’a Tahiti. Many restaurants serve this gourmet Tahitian food to tantalize the taste buds! Every archipelago is known for its individual craft making abilities whether it’s wood carving or designing stunning Tahitian jewelry. The Tahitian black pearl is certainly not a myth so a trip to Tuamotu archipelago’s pearl farms is a must. In Rurutu see locals make delicate headdresses and engage in basket weaving, in the Tuamotu discover unusual seashell necklaces and in the Marquesas be enchanted by mystical woodcarvings. Raiatea is the hub of Polynesian culture and is a must-see during your stay. Discover the Marae’s origins and purpose and did you know that these stone temples are sometimes compared to that of the Celts? In July be mesmerized by Polynesian traditional dances and songs in the annual Heiva i Tahiti. Of course groups perform regularly at hotel resorts and at the famous Moorea Tiki Village throughout the year. Polynesian culture is utterly vibrant and the Polynesian people love to share it with visitors.
