Par­adise At a Price

Business Traveler (USA) - - ESCAPE TO -

Tahiti de­liv­ers when it comes to warm, clear wa­ters and soft Trade Wind fan­tasies. And it is just be­yond Hawaii in dis­tance, around eight hours from the US West Coast.

How­ever, Tahiti is ex­pen­sive. French in na­tion­al­ity, the food and wine cul­ture can be out­stand­ing here – but not in­ex­pen­sive. Tahiti grows lit­tle of her own food stuff and im­ports al­most ev­ery­thing that hits the ta­bles or the mar­kets. If th­ese items do not come from France, they likely come from the US, New Zealand or Aus­tralia.

Still, time away in a per­fected South Pa­cific par­adise can be price­less, as Gau­guin and Brando dis­cov­ered.

Ac­ces­si­ble in­for­ma­tion and re­sources for trav­el­ing through French Poly­ne­sia can be found at Tahiti-Tourisme.com. BT
