    Papeete's Market

    a visit must be done, better very early in the morning when there are many flowers or for lunch time as there is a restaurant inside.
    I found lovely and delicius fruit there, I forgot the name...
    Sure, I must go back :-)

    What to buy: Monoi oil has to be bought here.

    Public market

    The public market is a great place to spend some time. It's a covered building with 2 floor.

    Downstairs you will find Tahitian mamas selling flowers, vegetables, fruit, fish and meat. Upstairs you mostly find the locally made products (pareos, seashells, woven hats and bags, ...).

    Vaima Center

    Papeete is a good place for shopping. The entire downtown is full of shops and shopping centers. You can easily spend a whole day here for your last shopping before going home.

    What to buy: Black Pearls, souvenir shops, arts and crafts, vanilla beans, Tahitian music, monoi oil, soaps and perfumes and much more.

    What to pay: French Polynesia is expensive, but in comparison to the other islands of French Polynesia, you can find the cheapest prices in Papeete.
