tourism draws vacationers from all over the world. With its
tropical climate and exotic beauty, it's easy to have a relaxing
time in this exotic destination. Far removed from typical spring
break vacationers and rowdy crowds, Tahiti is in a class by
itself. If you are seeking a special experience, spectacular
scenery, few tourists and no giant hotels, then Tahiti is for
you. To paint a picture, Hawaii gets more tourists in a week
than Tahiti does in an entire year. And, you will not have to
put up with vendors or beggars--they do not exist. The Tahitians
have a high standard of living and would not think of bothering
anyone or hawking stuff to tourists.
The term "French Polynesia" refers to five archipelagos spread
over an expanse of the South Pacific approximately the size
of Western Europe (2,000,000 square miles or approximately 5,000,000
square kilometers). The region includes the Marquesas, the Tuamotus,
the Society Islands, the Australs and the Gambiers. Each of
these archipelagos has its own culture, ethnicity and climate.
