French Polynesia/Tahiti: Around Papeete

As far as Papeete city goes – there is not much too see here. It’s by far the largest city of the entire French Polynesia (over 12% lives here). It’s congested with traffic, somewhat hectic and doesn’t have many attractions besides a few churches. It does have a lot of shops and cheesy restaurants as most tourists coming to French Polynesia by air or sea, spend a few days here.
