Visiting just one town or city, regardless of its popularity, will only ever furnish you with a limited view into the broader qualities of a region. So be sure to set aside enough time to explore Society Islands' other cities, attractions and landscapes. Papara, lays 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the east, while Papenoo lies 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the southeast.
History lovers will enjoy Society Islands' traditional villages.
The area around Tautira has exciting ways to experience the great outdoors. Thrill seekers can sign up for one of the many mountain climbing and four-wheel driving tours on offer.
A key to unlocking the culture is learning the local tongue, so before you head to the area it is a great idea to memorize a handful of handy French words. "Je viens de..." ("I come from...") is a good one to know. Another useful sentence is "Comment est-ce que vous vous appelez ?" (What's your name?).
Everything must end sometime, but be rest assured, when it's time to say "Au revoir / À bientôt" to Tautira, you'll have wonderful photos and memories to remember your time here.
