Papeete

We spent a total of three days in Papeete. Two days waiting to board our cruise ship and one day waiting to board our plane home. We spent the first two days at the Intercontinental Beachcomber Resort; a beautiful fantasy island type resort. We did not see much of the City of Papeete or the Island of Tahiti, as we spent most of our time soaking up the warm sun and water. It was a long flight; about 12 hours from Edmonton, Canada and we did not feel like doing to much when we arrived.

On our final day in Papeete prior to heading back home we had quite an adventure. We started the day off by taking a tour of the island. Then we spent the after noon running around the city trying to figure out a way to reprint our boarding passes. We had accidentally thrown out the passes when we cleaned up our cruise ship cabin. With some help from some very friendly locals we found the Air Nui office and were able to have them reprinted. We also found a little shop that had an internet café above it and were surprised to find out that it cost only a few dollars per hour to use the computers. It was a hectic nerve racking finishing to a great vacation. At least in our wanderings we were able to see some of the back streets of this bustling little city.

Papeete was so different than the other islands we visited. Most of the population of the region is located here. The other islands were so laid back and quiet compared to here.
