From the island of Tahiti, it would be a real shame if you did not book a flight out to Bora Bora (BOB). This tiny island has been the inspiration for a million postcards, with its perfect white sands, rising forested peaks, and water so clear you can see right to the bottom. If you’re looking for the quintessential tropical paradise, look no further.

If you’re after more than a quick hop across the water though, you can book a 12 hour flight to Tokyo (NRT) for a totally different holiday experience.

But you need not go so far to discover a new culture and vibe. Six hours away are the islands of Hawaii (HNL), a fascinating Polynesian culture that is now part of the USA. Visit the Polynesian Cultural Center to learn about the rich indigenous history, folklore and traditions, and then take that knowledge with you as you explore the Waipio Valley, the Volcanoes National Park, and the incredible beaches that litter the islands of this archipelago.
