Capital city of the week - Papeete

Papeete is the capital of a country made up of a number of islands.

The country is under the control of France but is allowed some autonomy.

It has a large and vibrant market.

You gotta love their buses!

So where is Papeete?

It's the capital of French Polynesia.  It is on the lovely island of Tahiti.

  1. Never heard of this town! Thanks for sharing. I hope someday I see Quito-Ecuador in your list, which is a world patrimony as well. Have a lovely week.

  2. I think I should go visit, just to make sure those buses are as cool looking in person. hehe

    You know, it doesn't take much to give me the travel bug. :)

  3. Nothing wrong with learning something new. I just did!

  4. Fascinating! I'd never heard of Papeete, and it looks lovely.
