The main island of Tahiti's capital city, Papeete, is the main port of call for the island and is home to a bustling harbor as well as the Faa'a International Airport. Papeete is also home to Le Marché, a large, two-story market located downtown where travelers can purchase many Tahitian products such as vanilla beans, monoi oil and colorful pareos. Travelers can easily find something special to bring home. Sundays are the best time to visit the market, as it's busy with locals stocking up for a day of family gatherings and meals.
Another great place to visit in Papeete is the Robert Wan Pearl Museum, the only museum in the world devoted entirely to pearls. Visitors can purchase black pearl or simply learn about the history and practice of cultivating pearls. The museum also has exhibits that demonstrate the importance of pearls in art, history, mythology and religion.
Vai'ete Square is the place to be after dark. The lively boardwalk is a unique place to have an informal dinner or after-dinner dessert from one of the many roulottes, or food trucks, that gather there to serve a variety of cuisine and desserts. Travelers can choose from many affordable treats, from French crepes to fresh fish and pizza.
The allure of Papeete is undeniable. Its vibrant city atmosphere itself can satisfy a traveler's wanderlust. Yet it's so close to amazing outdoor adventures, such as hiking, diving and horseback riding. It's a different kind of Tahitian experience, and one that travelers never will forget.

The capital of French Polynesia, Papeete, is located on the island of Tahiti. As the only real city in French Polynesia, Papeete can teach you a lot about life in the South Pacific. Traffic can be bad because of the small roads, and it is not a major tourism center, though it is relatively clean, safe and efficient for a tropical city
However, the city itself does have a sprinkling of charm, and at least a one-night stay in Papeete allows visitors time to visit some of its flashy boutiques, colorful local market, the black pearl museum and a chance to take in the active nightlife.
