TAHITI – Queen of the Pacific
Tahiti, only eight hours by air from the Los Angeles airport, is the largest of the French Polynesian islands and home of the capital, Papeete. The 155 year old public market, called Le Marché, is the largest shopping venue in the islands and one of the best places to find a souvenir like native wood carvings or fine Tahitian Pearls. At night Valiéte Square comes to life with an array of colorful food wagons from which you can choose a variety of local cuisine and desserts that you won’t want to miss.
